Arizona Rangeland Management and Grazing

BLM Arizona manages approximately 11.5 million acres of rangeland that are available for livestock grazing.  This includes 770 active grazing permits and leases on 841 allotments.

Embracing the landscape across the state is the growth of a rich and sensitive array of vegetative communities, all thriving with little rainfall.

As a result of this diversity, BLM's rangeland program places an emphasis in multi-jurisdiction ecosystem management in Arizona.  This involves interdisciplinary resource management in consultation and coordination with other federal, state, and local agencies and Native American tribes.  Additionally, rangelands belonging to Arizona's three National Conservation Areas, 47 Wilderness Areas and give National Monuments are cared for with special regard for their national designations.
