Summary: The Ashland Resource Area is beginning the planning process on a proposal to renew the grazing lease on the Cove Creek grazing allotment. The proposed action would permit 49 cow/calf pairs (75 AUMs) to graze on 1,207 acres on a Medford District Bureau of Land Management livestock allotment for a term of 10 years. The season of use would be changed from May 1 thru June 15 to June 1 thru July 15. This alternative responds to concerns regarding impacts to riparian areas and plant communities within the allotment.
