The Idaho Rangeland Resource Commission is a state agency that educates students, teachers and the general public about the value of public land grazing and multiple use management on lands managed by the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and Idaho Department of Lands. For technical assistance, contact the Idaho State Department of Agriculture.
These lands benefit from responsible rangeland management, and through our educational and public outreach efforts, the IRRC works to ensure that the public understands the value of public lands grazing. Utilizing research-based grazing management practices creates healthy lands, healthy livestock and abundant wildlife.
The Care/Share campaign is designed to minimize conflict between recreationists and ranchers/landowners. Care/Share is funded by rancher assessments and grants from participating agencies. If your private grazing areas or public grazing allotments are located in areas with frequent recreational use, consider ordering free Care/Share signs.
