  1. BLM needs to be brought under control they are destroying good men’s lives. First hand knowledge of them land locking two young men in Utah from taking their cattle from their private land to their mountain area private owned land. They would need to cross BLM land which has been done year after year until they reported some dishonest practices. Now they are blocking them to starve them out on having to buy feed everyday. This is power over reach in all sense of the word.

  2. Dorothy you are so right. The govt has started a squeeze that will never end. It is almost impossible to be a rancher/farmer anymore. Just the mention of BLM land makes my blood boil. It is our land, the citizens of America. Or it was anyway.
