Public-Lands Ranchers May Need More Forage?

A spokesman for the Public Lands Council said earlier this week before the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources that “There may be a need for access to additional forage, including vacant allotments or other available allotments that were not grazed during the summer season.”

His testimony concerned the effects of COVID-19 on public-lands ranchers, according to a news release dated July 23.

He did not indicate where those underutilized allotments would be found but almost certainly could offer a few suggestions.

Western Horse Watchers was unable to find a statement in the organization’s news releases condemning the recent PZP Amendment to H.R. 7608, a spending bill for FY 2021 now under consideration in the House.

The amendment has the full support of AWHC.
