They’ve gone and done it again — dropped public land grazing fees as low as the law allows. For a buck, thirty-five a month ranchers can let a cow stomp all over the the public land trample the banks and shit in the streams. Oh, yes, and their calves get to do it for free.
For those not so favored, you will be paying more fees this year to access your land. For $80 you can get the card below that will let you into many public land areas.
