NM ranchers sue Forest Service over grazing rights

Posted by nationalforestlawblog on January 24, 2012 at 9:05 PM

AP reports here that a group of hispanic ranchers have filed suit alleging that the Forest Service is illegally attempting to force them off their family's traditional grazing lands.  The agency recently cut the ranchers' grazign allotment by 1/5, which depending on herd size, could have a drastic effect on the viability of the livestock and profitability to the ranchers.
