FEDERAL GRAZING FEE DROPS, RAISING COST TO TAXPAYERS

The Bush administration has lowered the monthly cost of grazing livestock on federal land from $1.56 to $1.35 per cow/calf. This is the lowest allowable fee and is based on the cost of livestock grazing in 1966. The ridiculous fee — less than it costs to feed a pet goldfish — is one reason the federal government loses over $500 million per year on its livestock-grazing program.
