The counties included in this temporary reduction include Beaverhead, Madison, Jefferson, Gallatin, Lewis and Clark, Broadwater, Silver Bow and Park counties.
To provide the most flexibility to public land users, these reductions may be made by decreasing the number of livestock, the length of time spent on public lands, or a combination of the two management strategies.
If soil moisture improves substantially during the next couple of months, additional livestock use may be authorized up to the permitted use.
