Bidding for permits on Utah Division of Wildlife Resources lands
The Division of Wildlife Resources allows livestock owners to bid for grazing permits on certain DWR Wildlife and Waterfowl Management Areas. In selected areas, carefully planned grazing is a useful tool in managing wildlife habitat.
Currently, the division is accepting grazing bids on the following properties.
Animal Unit Month (AUM): An animal unit month (AUM) is the basic unit of grazing capacity and is defined as potential forage intake of one animal unit (AU) for one month or 30 days. As a quantitative measure of carrying capacity, the AUM is further described as 750 pounds of air dry forage (2.5 percent of body weight x 1,000 pounds x 30 days).
Animal Unit: (AU) Defined as a 1,000-pound, non-lactating cow.
Animal Unit Equivalents: (AUE) 1,000-pound, non-lactating cow or its equivalent in potential intake.
