Radical environmentalists are suing the federal agencies that manage grazing and are threatening the very future of southwestern ranching.
Ranching as we know it in the American West is at risk. Following decades of criticisms, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is revising its regulations concerning livestock grazing on federal lands. However, one vital reform should be given greater attention — grazing preferences.
