Recently, Utah Senator, Mike Lee, uploaded a video that explains why excessive federal land ownership is a bad idea for ALL Americans, not just those in the west. He explains that, “The federal government’s monopoly on land in the West is profoundly unfair and grossly inefficient. Not only does it deprive the state and local governments of much needed tax revenue that could help provide better public goods and services – it also embroils the local land use and management in endless bureaucratic red tape, stifling economic development and undermining sensible environmental protection.”
Please watch Senator Mike Lee and ask your state and national elected officials to support the Transfer of Public Lands and help restore the sovereignty that was intended for our states by our nation’s founders.
A Handbook for Ranch Managers. In keeping with the “holistic” idea that the land, the livestock, the people and the money should be viewed as a single integrated whole: Part I deals with the management of the natural resources. Part II covers livestock production and Part III deals with the people and the money. Not only would this book make an excellent basic text for a university program in Ranch Management, no professional ranch manager’s reference bookshelf should be without it. It is a comprehensive reference manual for managing the working ranch. The information in the appendices and extensive bibliography alone is worth the price of the book.
