Axtell Tour Set for Mid Month

A public tour of the off-range corrals in Axtell, UT will occur on October 15, according to a BLM news release published today.

The facility currently houses animals from the Frisco, Shawave and Sulphur roundups.

The government removes wild horses from western rangelands and places them in facilities like this at a cost of roughly $5 per day per horse so it can collect about four and a half cents per day for each cow/calf pair that replaces them.

Taxpayers cover the difference and the ranchers get rich.
