• Potential for Increases in Grazing Fees

      Hooper, J. F. (Society for Range Management, 1967-09-01)
      Incremental changes in grazing fees on Federal lands have not kept pace with private lease rates. The differential between Federal and private lease rates has fostered inflated capital values for grazing permits and base property. Raising fees on Federal grazing lands without compensating ranchers for their leasehold interest would be requiring them to pay twice for the same assets. Prospects are that changes in grazing fees will continue to be incremental.
