A draft environmental assessment for livestock grazing on the Pumpkin Creek allotment shows average grazing fees of $12.92 per AUM on state-owned lands and $26.50 per AUM on private lands. See page 26 in the EA (page 30 in the pdf).
The fee on BLM lands is $1.35 per AUM, about 5% of the going rate on private lands.
The government pays about $60 per AUM for wild horses in long-term holding.
The allotment is about 15 miles south of Miles City in the eastern part of the state, according to a news release issued yesterday.
