Steens mountain grazing cattle

The Bureau of Land Management is conducting an environmental impact statement over four grazing allotments that were previously grazed by Hammond Ranches. The review could either allow grazing again, with no preference, or prohibit grazing entirely. Pictured here, cattle grazing in an allotment east of Steens Mountain. Greg Shine, BLM.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) recently vacated and remanded a decision to allow a 10-year grazing management plan in the Alvord Desert of southeastern Oregon.

While BLM had previously approved the plan, Western Watersheds Project, WildLands Defense and Wild Horse Education appealed the decision to the Office of Hearings and Appeals within the Department of the Interior.
