The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Utah Moab Field Office is seeking public comment on an Environmental Assessment (EA) analyzing potential impacts associated with livestock trailing proposed by 22 livestock operators in 39 allotments.

In July 2014, the BLM solicited information from livestock operators and the public relating to trails where livestock-trailing permits could be requested in the future. If approved, the BLM says the EA for proposed livestock trailing would aid in proper grazing management and facilitation of movement of livestock to and from private, state and federally administered lands.

Additional information can be found in the EA, which is available on the BLM-Moab website at:

Written comments will be accepted by letter or email until Friday, Aug. 21. The BLM says that the most useful comments are those that contain new technical or scientific information relevant to the proposed action. Comments should be as specific as possible. Comments which contain only opinions or preferences will not receive a formal response but may be considered in the BLM decision-making process.

Please reference “Moab Field Office Livestock Trailing Permits EA” when submitting comments.

Written comments may be mailed to: Bureau of Land Management, Moab Field Office, Attn: Moab Field Office Livestock Trailing Permits, 82 East Dogwood, Moab, Utah 84532. Comments can also be emailed to:
