 The next critical issue facing many in Wyoming agriculture is the implementation of sage grouse BLM and USFS Plan Amendments adopted in 2015.  The BLM has just announced that they will be opening up a public comment period to consider potential revisions to these plans.  While the current plans are in general consistent with the Wyoming Governor’s Executive Order on Sage Grouse, they go far beyond the Wyoming Plan in a few critical areas.  Of particular concern is the establishment of “stubble height” criteria that could significantly alter or preclude livestock grazing.  We anticipate a comment period that will expire right around Thanksgiving.  Comments on this issue can be submitted at http://bit.ly/GRSGplanning.
