Bigger Not Necessarily Better for Cedar Creek Permittees

The allotment, subject of today’s stewardship awards, offers 2,657 active AUMs on 14,008 public acres.

It’s on the small side, as far as allotments go, but forage availablility is high, 189.7 AUMs per year per thousand acres.

For comparison, the allotments in the Roberts Mountain Complex offer an average of 49.7 AUMs per year per thousand acres.

The BLM authorizes privately owned livestock in Cedar Creek equivalent to 221 wild horses, with a stocking rate of 15.8 wild horses per thousand acres!

The average rate across all HMAs is one wild horse per thousand acres.
