Arizona Public Land Ranches That Benefited From Government Assistance

Note: This page takes a few moments to download because of the large volume of conveniently scrollable information.

Examples of Arizona ranches with permits for public land grazing allotments that significantly benefited from government assistance. Keep in mind while reviewing these tables that since 2020 these ranchers have paid the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and/or the U.S. Forest Service a federal grazing fee of only $1.35 per animal unit month (AUM) to graze their livestock on public land. That works out to $16.20 per cow per year.

This isn't all of the government assistance that benefited the ranch. According to a 2008 Arizona Game & Fish Department letter, they had previously spent more than $1.3 million on the ranch.

The enormous CO Bar Ranch is located between Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon, and runs from the Little Colorado River in the east to State Route 64 in the west. It is comprised primarily of private and state land, but includes the Coconino National Forest's Slate Mountain & Wild Bill grazing allotments in the south, and the Kaibab National Forest's Moqui grazing allotment in the north, along with the BLM's small CO Bar allotment, administered by their Hassayampa Field Office. The ranch uses scientifically discredited Holistic Resource Management (HRM) intensive grazing theories. HRM grazing plans are typified by high utilization rates, which can increase competition between cattle and wildlife for forage, and degrade watershed health and wildlife habitat - especially in dry ecosystems and during droughts. (Babbitt Ranches LLC also owns the Espee Ranch, located west of SR 64, which includes private land and state grazing lease #05-000822.)

This isn't all of the government assistance that benefited the ranch. According to a 2008 Arizona Game & Fish Department letter, they had previously spent more than $1.3 million on the ranch.

The enormous CO Bar Ranch is located between Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon, and runs from the Little Colorado River in the east to State Route 64 in the west. It is comprised primarily of private and state land, but includes the Coconino National Forest's Slate Mountain & Wild Bill grazing allotments in the south, and the Kaibab National Forest's Moqui grazing allotment in the north, along with the BLM's small CO Bar allotment, administered by their Hassayampa Field Office. The ranch uses scientifically discredited Holistic Resource Management (HRM) intensive grazing theories. HRM grazing plans are typified by high utilization rates, which can increase competition between cattle and wildlife for forage, and degrade watershed health and wildlife habitat - especially in dry ecosystems and during droughts. (Babbitt Ranches LLC also owns the Espee Ranch, located west of SR 64, which includes private land and state grazing lease #05-000822.)

* WHIP ended in 2013 and was absorbed by the EQIP program.
** This project was shared with Hat grazing allotment on the nearby Kaibab National Forest.
This isn't all of the government assistance that benefited the ranch. According to a 2008 Arizona Game & Fish Department letter, they had previously spent more than $1.3 million on the ranch.

The enormous CO Bar Ranch is located between Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon, and runs from the Little Colorado River in the east to State Route 64 in the west. It is comprised primarily of private and state land, but includes the Coconino National Forest's Slate Mountain & Wild Bill grazing allotments in the south, and the Kaibab National Forest's Moqui grazing allotment in the north, along with the BLM's small CO Bar allotment, administered by their Hassayampa Field Office. The ranch uses scientifically discredited Holistic Resource Management (HRM) intensive grazing theories. HRM grazing plans are typified by high utilization rates, which can increase competition between cattle and wildlife for forage, and degrade watershed health and wildlife habitat - especially in dry ecosystems and during droughts. (Babbitt Ranches LLC also owns the Espee Ranch, located west of SR 64, which includes private land and state grazing lease #05-000822.)

  1. It about time for changes! The Environmental Protection Agency should be establishing a group comprised of folks not related to or involved with any cattle or sheep ranch families to oversee what they are doing. Also, all AUM dollars should be reflecting the going prices of what these ranchers would be paying if they were leasing land from private owners. The government of the U.S. should not be spending all this money subsidizing ranches, and allowing such huge numbers of livestock to be ruining the land.
