Resource Area: Three Rivers
NEPA #: DOI-BLM-OR-025-2009-0076-EA  Decision Record
Document Publish Date: 2/01/2010
Summary: The Proposed Decision is to implement the Proposed Action (Alternative II). That is a partial conversion of authorized livestock from cattle to sheep and renewal of term grazing permit #3600216 for 10 years, March 1, 2010 to February 28, 2020. The new permit authorizes a maximum of 571 AUMs of permitted active use. Up to 336 AUMs will be allocated for domestic sheep use and the remainder, 235 AUMs or more, will be available for cattle. This Decision will not increase current total permitted AUMs in Skull Creek Allotment. Herding will be a key component in the success of sheep grazing management within the allotment to improve livestock distribution and is a term and condition of the new permit.
