Onaqui Livestock Receive Five Times More Forage Than Horses?

So says the writer of a guest column in today’s edition of The Salt Lake Tribune.

If that’s true, then why is she pushing contraceptives?

Take the forage assigned to livestock, add it to the forage assigned to horses and divide by the sum by twelve, yielding the True AML.

Is the current population larger than that amount?  If the answer is no, then there is no justification for a roundup or fertility control program.

Action may be needed if the herd exceeds 1 + 5 = 6X AML.  The current AML is 210.

Western Horse Watchers is pleased to see key management indicators such as forage allocations and stocking rates included in an article about wild horses.
