Worland BLM Reviews Grazing Allotments


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Worland Field Office will be reviewing several grazing allotments during the next few months to determine if the Wyoming Standards for Healthy Rangelands and Guidelines for Livestock Management are being met.

The Department of the Interior's final rule for grazing administration became effective in 1995 and the standards and guidelines are used to improve and/or maintain the health of all BLM-administered public lands. The four fundamentals of rangeland health outlined in the grazing regulations are (1) watersheds are functioning properly; (2) water, nutrients, and energy are cycling properly; (3) water quality meets state standards and (4) habitat for special status species is protected.

The following allotments in Big Horn, Hot Springs and Washakie counties will be reviewed this year: Adam Weiss, Beckley, Demer Nowater, Grass Point, Joe Henry, Jolley, Kimball, Lake Ridge, Red Springs Draw, Rim, Small and Zimmerman Butte.

Anyone wishing to participate in the review must submit a letter or email of interest to the Worland Field Office, P.O. Box 119, Worland, WY, 82401; worland_wymail@blm.gov. For more information call 307-347-5100.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
