Nearly 44% of Uinta County is owned and managed by federal land management agencies. The agencies include the BLM, Forest Service, and the State of Wyoming. Federal or public lands are designated as multi-use, meaning that they open for a variety of uses including livestock grazing, hunting, fishing, and other recreational activities. UCCD works alongside these land management agencies when they are conducting their field studies to make sure the range is going the way it should. These agencies document all the information and use it to get clearances on grazing permits, range projects including cross-fencing pastures and water development, and many other practices. Many livestock producers in Uinta County utilize these public lands for grazing, both here in Wyoming and Utah.
