Ranchers Recognized on National Public Lands Day

In honor of National Public Lands Day, the Public Lands Council and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association want to recognize the 22,000 ranchers that hold grazing permits, managing more than 250 million federally-controlled acres and providing critical economic return on the vast public lands that cover much of the West. 

Livestock grazing represents the earliest use of western lands, leading to our nation's expansion westward. Today, grazing continues to represent a primary multiple use that is essential to the livestock industry, wildlife habitat, open space and the rural economies of many western communities.
