Feds Under Fire in Arizona for Plan to Round Up Wild Horses

Conservationists in Arizona are ramping up efforts to stop the federal government from rounding up herds of wild horses in a local forest — a move opponents say puts the animals’ lives in jeopardy….Forest Service says the animals are a danger to public safety

A Handbook for Ranch ManagersFirst, a point about terminology.  To call these morons “conservationists” is misleading as it is the land that needs conserving. Literally millions of acres of rangeland have been destroyed by UN-managed, out of control herds. 

Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualLike most of the other problems in the rural west, its basis is in government ownership of the land. {The government claims title to about 65% of the land mass west of the 100th meridian (about Denver)}. Return that stolen land to its rightful owners (the families that have lived and worked on it for 4 or 5 generations) and throw in the “wild horses” and you would see the problem self-solve in about 15.5 mille seconds. — jtl, 419

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewConservationists in Arizona are ramping up efforts to stop the federal government from rounding up herds of wild horses in a local forest — a move opponents say puts the animals’ lives in jeopardy.

The Forest Service has placed a Friday deadline on wild horses roaming in Tonto National Forest for those who wish to make a claim on individual animals. The remaining horses will be sent to auction, and those unable to be auctioned off will be “sold at private sale or condemned and destroyed, or otherwise disposed of,” according to the notice.

However, she said that while the deadline ends Friday, there is no date set yet to round up the animals.

Conservationists fear that rounding up the animals could seriously injure them, while horses sent to auctions may be killed by so-called “kill buyers” who pick up the animals for the horse-meat trade.

Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualPlanned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual. This is the ideal squeal to A Handbook for Ranch Managers.  Although the ecological principles remain the same, what was originally known as “The Savory Grazing Method” now answers to a multitude of different names: ranching for profit, holistic management, managed grazing, mob grazing, management intensive grazing, etc. Land & Livestock International, Inc. uses “Restoration Grazing” under its “Managing the Ranch as a Business” program.” No mater what you call it, this summary and synopsis will guide you step by step through the process and teach you how to use it as it was originally intended. No more excuses for failing to complete your grazing plans.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.

    Not only are these folks not “conservationists,” these horses are not “wild.” They are “feral” horses with virtually no genetic or historic link to so-called “Spanish Mustangs.” If they were of Mongolian descent – that is, a separate species or subspecies with innate resistance to domestication – using the term “wild” would be appropriate, but I wish that the term “feral” would be widely adopted. Most people understand what a “feral housecats” are, and tend to have little affection for them. That the notion of wild horses has this romantic aura is a barrier to understanding. In truth, America has no “wild horse problem”; only a “public-lands problem.” Solve the latter, the former disappears.


    • We are working on it (making “public lands” disappear). That is why, for the last three or four years, I have been attending the Arizona and New Mexico Cattle Growers annual conventions (Texas too but Texas is lucky in that it has very little “public land”).

      The cattle growers conventions are the epicenter of the fight with the FedGov as well as the Enviro Wackos. That is because they have the most at stake–their entire livelihood, heritage, culture and way of life for four or five generations.

      If you ranch (especially in the West) you should join your CGA.
