Permitted Livestock Grazing

Picture of a bull in the National Forests in Florida.Permitted grazing is use of rangeland resources by livestock. Grazing permittees are individuals or organizations who have acquired the privilege to graze livestock on National Forest or National Grasslands. Groups, such as Grazing Associations, often hold grazing permits.

Grazing management on rangelands today is a collaborative effort. There is a lot of public concern about management of livestock on federals lands. Gaining the understanding and cooperation of everyone involved in grazing management improves the chances for a successful program. This includes landowners, land managers, users, universities, other agencies, and the public.
