BLM Worland Reviews Grazing Allotments


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

Standards and guidelines address the health, productivity and sustainability of public rangelands. The BLM Wyoming standards and guidelines assess the four fundamentals of rangeland health: properly functioning watersheds; naturally cycling water, nutrients and energy; acceptable air and water quality; and viable habitats for special status species.

The following allotments in Big Horn, Hot Springs and Park counties will be reviewed this year: Big Cottonwood #00030, Cottonwood-North Butte #00164, Kirby Creek #00589, LU #00604, Major Basin #02546, North Gooseberry #00508, South Sleeper #00683, Split Rock Vs #00090, Spring Gulch #00531, Swallow #02543, Switchback #00167, Wild Horse Butte #00592 and Zimmerman Springs #00591.

Anyone wishing to participate in the review must submit a letter or email of interest to the BLM-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.
