Completed FY 2013 Gathers

When deteriorating rangeland conditions are determined, the BLM removes excess wild horses and burros from overpopulated Herd Management Areas (HMAs) and restricts livestock grazing to keep animal populations at sustainable levels. Wildfires and severe drought conditions are also important factors in the condition of the public rangelands.

The statistics below are from gathers completed in Herd Management Areas during the current Fiscal Year. For a tentative schedule of upcoming gathers, select this link.
