    In June, The Department of the Interior announced that more than 1,900 state and local governments around the country will receive a total of $578.8 million in Payments in Lieu of Taxes funding for 2023.

  • Remember When

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Jul 26, 2023

    I am sure that many of you guys out there can remember getting a summer job picking up bales. It seemed like many of the young high school football players liked to get the job as they got to “keep in shape” over the summer. When I go outside to help, I can’t help but remember my days in the hay field and I got to run air-conditioned outfits. I can’t imagine what it would be like picking bales the hard way on those 90-degree days. Thankfully, modern equipment and bale size has brought about many changes in that respect. For those of you loo...

  • Ranchers Benefit From Fencing Projects With Ranchers Stewardship Alliance

    Ranchers Stewardship Alliance Kayla Walker, For the Courier|Jul 26, 2023

    There's been entire books written on the history of fencing in the West. The evolution of barbed wire, the impact fences had on the landscapes, and the range wars that ensued when fences first went up are all remarkable and fascinating stories that will forever stand in the history of the American West and the ranching industry. But when those same fences that made history are still standing today, plans to upgrade have likely been discussed. Modern day ranchers, however, know the harsh reality...
