PEER Report in the News

A story in today’s edition of The Salt Lake Tribune looks at HMAs and grazing allotments in Utah, especially those managed by the Fillmore Field Office.

The article said the office reported 1% of the allotments by acreage with substandard conditions due to grazing, but the Allotment Information report in RAS shows 33.6% of the public acres in the Improve category.

Earlier this year Western Horse Watchers found that approximately 57% of the public acres in Utah grazing allotments do not meet standards for rangeland health.
