Cutting Costs of WHB Program

Consider two HMAs, each starting off at low end of AML.

HMA1

  • AML 50 – 100 wild horses

HMA2

  • AML 500 – 1,000 wild horses

Both HMAs will need to be gathered in five years.  Fifty wild horses will need to be removed from HMA1 and 500 from HMA2.

Which operation will cost less?  Which one will require more off-range holding?

If the goal is to save money, zero out all the HMAs and end the WHB program.
