The fee for grazing livestock on Federal public lands is adjusted each year based on a formula set by Congress in the Public Rangelands Improvement Act of 1978. This statutory formula was modified and extended by a 1986 Executive Order.
The grazing fee is calculated on a per-AUM basis adjusted each year for three factors:
o the rate for leasing private grazing land
The fee may not be lower than $1.35 per AUM and may not rise or fall more than 25% compared to the previous year's fee.
An applicant may obtain a crossing permit after showing a need to trail livestock on public lands for proper and lawful purposes, and following completion of analysis under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and public notification.
