Because of the fire there will be lots of displaced livestock. I'd like to encourage everyone reading this post to pickup the phone and call Denny Reberg, Jon Tester, and Max Bacus and ask them to open the Pumpkin Creek wilderness just south of Miles City up to people who have lost grazing land due to the AC fire. This property has not been grazed in several year. It needs to be grazed. While this isnt a perfect situation, it is better than the alternative which is selling entire herds of livestock.

I have witnessed what Miles City can do when our neighbors are in need. Let's rise to the occasion and make this happen!

I hope this happens. You can't sell off your whole herd and then just buy another one next year, people have years and years of breeding into their cattle and that's not easily replaced.

Also, having that wilderness area grazed will probably reduce the chances of it burning up down the road as well.

Richard,
I sent messages on Facebook to Senator Tester. It's the fastest way to reach him right now. It is a great idea. Thank you for posting it.

BLM has been checking fences and water getting ready to open it up for grazing.This is from feet on the ground. Not sure what act of congress will be needed but the local guys are working on it.

I attended the BLM Resource Advisory Council meeting today in MC. I am very please to share that the local BLM office stepped up to the plate and has opened the Pumpkin Creek area up to grazing through the first of December. There are several people in the local BLM office that deserve kudos for getting this done. They include the District Manager Diane Friez, Field Office manager Todd Yeager, and the Supervisory Rangeland Management Specialist Ryer Rens and several in his department. There are also several ranchers in the area, Fritz Zook for one, who have assisted the BLM in accomplishing this task.

If you see these people around town, please be sure to thank them for going above and beyond and doing great work in a short amount of time. beer
