Idaho Rangeland Management and Grazing

In 2016, grazing on BLM managed public lands in Idaho generated $416 million in economic output, more than any other BLM state.  

BLM Idaho authorizes livestock grazing for domestic horses, sheep, and cattle on over 11,500,000 acres of public land.  This includes over 2,100 grazing allotments, over 1,600 livestock operators, and over 1,800 grazing permits.

The Life on the Range website shares educational stories about the ever-changing landscape of ranching, multiple-use management, entrepreneurial spirit, family and stewardship on Idaho's rangelands.
