Grazing on Public Land: WSF Weighs in on Proposed New Policy

Most recently, WSF weighed in on the U.S. Forest Service’s proposed update of their Rangeland Management Directives, or Grazing Manual. WSF believes any new USFS Directives should include essential and clear guidance on coordination and management strategies where the presence of domestic sheep and goats may lead to interaction with wild sheep; the potential for pathogen transmission between the species must be critically addressed.
WSF joined the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) in submitting a detailed comment letter to the USFS in Washington, DC, urging these considerations be included.
