Western ND grazing agreements set to take effect

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — New grazing agreements are set to take effect on the Little Missouri National Grasslands in western North Dakota.

The Forest Service says it has issued 10-year agreements to the Medora and McKenzie County grazing associations. The old agreements that had been in place for 20 years expired Monday.

The new agreements were developed after 10 months of negotiations. They govern the administration of grazing permits on the grasslands.

Keith Winter, president of the McKenzie County Grazing Association, says both associations plan to meet Tuesday to determine whether to sign the agreements.
