Help Ranchers Like Marvin: Support voluntary grazing permit retirement legislation

Permit retirement is essential to securing economically and ecologically robust rural communities for future generations. Ranchers want it, conservationists want it, sportsmen want it. Our biggest obstacle is animal agriculture groups who believe that production agriculture should be held above all other uses on public lands. Supporting and elevating the voices of ranchers who want the option to voluntarily retire their permits is our pathway to success.
