Keep in mind while reviewing these lists that 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) since 2020 to graze their livestock on public land. That works out to $16.20 per cow per year. A 2019 congressional investigation found that leasing comparable livestock grazing on private ranchlands in the West cost an average of $23.40 per month in 2017.
