Term Grazing Permit Renewal for authorization #2700045 on the Medicine Butte, North Butte, and Goshute Basin Allotments as well as the Jakes Unit, Preston Lund and White River sheep trails.
The purpose for the action is to fully process and renew the grazing term permit for authorization #2700045.
The issuance of the new term grazing permit could be for a period up to ten years. An evaluation of range monitoring data and rangeland health was conducted for the Medicine Butte, North Butte and Goshute Basin Allotments as well as the Jakes Unit, Preston Lund and White River sheep trails. This data was summarized in a Standards Determination Document (SDD) which is also available for public review with this EA.
Term permit renewals are issued in accordance with Title 43 CFR 4130.2(a), "Grazing permits or leases shall be issued to qualified applicants to authorize use on the public lands and other lands under the administration of the Bureau of Land Management that are designated as available for livestock grazing through land use plans."
