Warren Scoppettone on Newark Allotment
The purpose and need for the action is to fully process and renew the term grazing permit and reissue a permit for Warren Scoppettone on the Newark Allotment. The issuance of the permit would be for an unset period not to exceed 10 years. The Newark Allotment consists of 218,105 acres under Bureau of Land Management administration. The current permit allows Warren Scoppettone to graze cattle and sheep from 04/01 to 11/01 depending on pasture. A total of 1960 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 team permit renewal process. An evaluation of the range monitoring data and rangeland health will be conducted for the Newark Allotment. This data will be summarized in a Standards Determination Document.
