Trusted stewards of Idaho's resources, from main street to mountain top

2016-2017 Grazing Program Review

IDL Grazing Business Plan | Grazing Lease Rate Formula

IDL routinely evaluates management strategies for all endowment trust land assets in order to ensure the Land Board is meeting a constitutional mandate to maximize long-term financial returns on the use of the land.

Thanks to input from industry and other stakeholders, the IDL Grazing Program Business Plan is complete. Now IDL is focused on moving forward with a review of the IDL Grazing Lease Rate Formula.

IDL invites and encourages strong stakeholder participation in the review process.
