WASHINGTON (Feb. 1, 2022) — Today, the Public Lands Council released the following statement regarding the announcement of the 2022 federal grazing fee.
“Each year, ranchers across the West depend on a grazing fee process that is transparent and accurately reflects conditions on the ground. The standard formula ensures fair and equitable access to forage on federal lands. With the fees now in place for the 2022 grazing season, ranchers can make plans for their business and focus on what they do best: strengthening our economy, stewarding our natural resources, and supporting local rural communities.”
The 2022 grazing fee will be $1.35 per animal unit month on lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and $1.35 for lands managed by the U.S. Forest Service. There was no change from the 2021 levels.
