The Department of Interior, along with the Bureau of Land Management, has proposed that 10 million acres of federal mining land be withdrawn in order to protect sage grouse populations. Critics allege that the measure is unnecessary and will not benefit the bird species.

Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Katie Sweeney of the National Mining Association said research shows that invasive species and wildfires present a bigger threat to sage grouse than mining does. She said that federal agencies are ignoring efforts made by private companies to improve conservation.

“The BLM, which is the agency that is this withdrawal, is the same agency that regulates mining on federal lands. So, they should be most well aware of what the mining companies do on the conservation end,” she said. “They should also know that many of these mining companies, post-mining—when they’ve completed their reclamation efforts—actually are leaving the land in better condition for sage grouse.”

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewIndividual states, including Utah, have taken action to protect sage grouse habitat, which has led to a 63 percent increase in the bird’s population since 2013. Sweeney said that the proposal to further restrict mining limits the nation’s industrial potential.

“The federal lands have huge mineral potential. They provide a great deal of the mineral resources that U.S. manufacturing uses today and could provide even more if we stop putting it off limits,” she said. “We’re import-dependent for more than 19 key minerals and more than 50 percent import-dependent for an additional 24 mineral commodities. Yet, we have $6.2 trillion worth of mineral resources under our shores.”

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.

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.
