Grazing Permit Administration Handbook (FSH 2209.13), Chapters 10 (Term Grazing Permits) and 20 (Grazing Agreements)
The Forest Service has issued two (2) interim directives (IDs) to Forest Service Handbook 2209.13 establishing procedures and responsibilities for administering term grazing permits and grazing agreements (a specific type of term grazing permit). The intended effect of issuance of these IDs is to provide consistent overall guidance to Forest Service employees regarding term grazing permits and grazing agreements. The IDs add new provisions for administering term grazing permits and establish a consistent process regarding issuance of grazing agreements. The regulations at 36 CFR part 222 are not being changed. Public comment is invited and will be considered in development of the final direction.
