    It is public land. Whether it is state or federal is immaterial. The BLM is the manager of the land. Anyway, where do you come by the info that it is state owned?

    Here's some more about Bundy the Freeloader and his so called "range war":

    The roundup of as many as 900 illegally grazed cattle from Nevada public lands continued with nary a hitch on Monday, despite grandiose threats of a "range war" from the livestock's owner.

    Bunkerville, Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy had issued the threat in response to a long-postponed confiscation of his cattle, which he's been grazing illegally on publicly owned Mojave desert land around Gold Butte in Clark County, Nevada since 1993.

    That was the year in which Bundy, who denies the federal government legally owns land managed by the BLM, started to refuse to pay the token grazing fee required of ranchers who graze their livestock on public land. In the process, the combative Bundy has interfered with ecological restoration efforts, and environmentalists charge that his cattle are degrading the Gold Butte landscape.

    The precedent will be set throughout states in the West as well as alaska.
    The GOP House has legislation opposing the BLM right now .

    If this guy can't afford to hold all his cattle on his own farm then he should get rid of some of the cattle.

    my grandfather had a 116 acre farm and had tons of pasture line for his cows and horses.

    Well, the feds stole almost half his cattle so, hopefully they either return his property or pay him.

    or take it out of the grazing fees he hasn't been paying for the past couple of decades.

    This turf war is all about power, not about cattle or tortoise, and the kind of power the writers of the Constitution warned about and why they passed the 2nd Amendment. Now many arms of the government are getting their own SWAT teams. Another Waco waiting to happen.

    That is dicy since the cattle were confiscated and moved for tresspassing. he will have to plead that case in court that the cows be
    returned or he is given fair compensation.

    of course they could rule that the cows are collatteral for the grazing that they did.

    what is left is basically court and the court is not going to side on his side and in fact they have ruled about 3 or 4 times against him.

    For the government to spend that much money, and to use the amount of force they are using, those grazing fees must number in the millions of dollars.

    .

    A "farm" in a grassy eastern climate only needs a few acres of pasture to support livestock. You are completely disregarding the difference in the climate west of the Rockies.
