Grazing Program

SITLA 2023-24 Grazing Rates:  $6.65/AUM (Standard); $11.66/AUM (Block) – plus a $0.10/AUM Weed Fee

Most trust lands are scattered within Bureau of Land Management (BLM) allotments and are permitted to BLM permittees. However, there are a few blocks of trust lands that are fenced separately from federal allotments and are currently permitted at premium rates. Trust land grazing permits have 15-year terms, but can be cancelled with a 30 day notice for a higher or better use.

Each year, competitive bids for expiring permits will be accepted during the month of April.   Those permits which are expiring June 30 of the current year and will be offered competitively will be posted on the website by February 1 each year.  Click here for more information about the grazing permit competitive bidding process.
