2014 Domestic Livestock Grazing Annual Operating Instructions
Annual Operating Instructions (AOI) are part of every Term Grazing Permit. AOI specify annual actions needed to implement management direction set forth in project-level NEPA-based decisions, Threatened or Endangered (T&E) Species consultation with Fish and Wildlife Services, and/or the Forest Land Management Plan. To the extent feasible, AOI are developed with the permittee and identify the obligations of both the permittee and the Forest Service.
Actual information on-dates, pasture move-dates, and off-dates are dependent on range readiness and when allowable use standards are met. The Forest Service may approve changes to the grazing rotation or range improvement maintenance schedule in consultation with the permittees. Changes to current AOI are approved by the District Ranger and address situations related to weather, resource conditions, wildfire, logging operations or other unforeseeable circumstances.
