Triple B Update

Five hundred and one wild horses have been forced off their home range during the first week of the roundup, according to today’s report, liberating approximately 6,000 AUMs per year for the public-lands ranchers.

The government can expect to receive an additional $8,000 per year in grazing fees in exchange for the roughly two hundred thousand of dollars it has spent so far on the operation, for a simple payout of 25 years.

Given that most of them won’t be adopted, the added cost of off-range holding means there is no payout at all.

The answer is clear: Leave them on the range, end public-lands ranching.
