#FreeTheLands – The Goal

A Handbook for Ranch ManagersPosted by Becky Ivory


Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Everywhere you turn, misinformation concerning the Transfer of Public Lands (TPL) seems to be traveling through the media as opponents repeat rhetoric that has been disproven years ago. In order for the public to understand why we need to #FreeTheLands, they must first understand what it is and what it is not.

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewRecently, the American Lands Council has created a simple two-sided handout that summarizes the goals of the TPL movement, as well as well-founded facts to support the transfer, and reiterate the Public Policy Statement of the American Lands Council. This simple handout can be viewed and downloaded HERE. We encourage you to share it within your circle of influence and be a part of the solution!

Combat Shooter's HandbookToday, let’s focus on the goal of the American Lands Council and the Transfer of Public Lands movement as taken from this handout:


Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute It’s as simple as that…healthy environment, abundant recreation, and safe, vibrant communities. These are the things that we all want for our public lands. There is no desire to sell the lands; no desire to destroy natural resources; no desire to cut off access to the beautiful lands of the west. Don’t be fooled by those who would have you believe otherwise.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsIt is possible to manage our own lands in the west and to do it more effectively than the failed federal policies that have been destroying our lands for decades.

#FreeTheLands is NOT about selling off public lands and it’s NOT about transferring national parks, wilderness, or Indian reservations; it’s about ordinary federal public lands becoming state public lands for multiple use in accordance with state and local plans. In fact, when our advocates introduced legislation to keep public lands public, it was the very groups who claim we would sell them that opposed the bill! See for yourself HERE.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1)  The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)  View the entire public policy statement HERE.

Please share this simple handout with your friends and contacts and help them see how they can stand with communities throughout the West in calling for a restoration of our public lands by calling for the Transfer of Public Lands in the west.

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.
