Carry and Elizabeth Baker on Six Mile Ranch Allotment
The purpose and need for the action is to fully process and renew the term grazing permit and reissue a permit for Carry and Elizabeth Baker on the Six Mile Ranch Allotment. The issuance of the permit would be for an unset period not to exceed 10 years. The Six Mile Ranch Allotment consists of 2232 acres under Bureau of Land Management administration and 105 acres of private land. The current permit allows Carry and Elizabeth Baker to graze 30 Cattle from 04/01 to 04/30 and 24 cattle from 09/15 to 02/28. A total of 162 active AUMs are currently permitted. Potential changes could occur to the permit based upon a review of rangeland health standards. If changes are to be made, an Interdisciplinary Team (ID team) and public input will be solicited to assist in developing management guidelines for the term permit renewal process. An evaluation of the range monitoring data and rangeland health will be conducted for the Six Mile Ranch Allotment. This data will be summarized in a Standards Determination Document.
