“Conservation, as I use the term, does not mean non-use or non-development. It does not mean tying up the natural resources of the states. It means the utilization of these resources under such regulation and control as will prevent waste, extravagance, and monopoly; but at the same time, not merely promoting, but encouraging such use and development as will serve the interests of the people generally.”      ~Theodore Roosevelt, 1910

Harney County United https://www.facebook.com/groups/259827470735606/permalink/1203913379660339/ “Please read the Record of Decision for the BLM Sage Grouse Plan (below); this is our future right here. This document states that the stubble height on grass should be 7″ during March 30 – June 30, which is completely unattainable. If this can’t be attained then there will be a change in the season of use, meaning we won’t be able to graze livestock until July. But then, how can we guarantee the stubble height will be 7″ the following March? We can’t because grass doesn’t grow in the winter!! This is just ONE of the troubling new standards in this document! This will create a national monument out of the entire west without the need of a “designation.” Catastrophic wildfire is one of the primary causal factors in the decline of the Sage Grouse population; livestock grazing is NOT (as per USFWS). As livestock are removed from the landscape, catastrophic wildfires increase exponentially!” ~ Erin Maupin.
