The Salem Ranger District of the Mark Twain National Forest is seeking your comments on a proposal to re-issue a ten-year Term Grazing Permit and Allotment Management Plan for the Asher Creek Grazing Allotment. Asher Creek is located two miles southeast of Boss. The Allotment is approximately 200 acres of National Forest System lands. The Salem Ranger District is proposing to authorize livestock grazing in a manner that moves toward the Forest Plan Goal and Objectives. The plan includes controlling the time, duration and intensity of livestock grazing to achieve a desired structure and species composition objectives. The plan also will only allow grading in those areas with adequate fencing for control and management of livestock, and grazing will not be allowed with in 100-feet of springs, significant seeps, fens, other wetland features or the break of a sinkhole basin. District Ranger Thomas Haines invites you to comment on this proposal before the analysis has been completed and a final decision has been made. You can stop by and discuss this at the Salem Ranger District office located at 1301 South Main in Salem, or give them call at 729-6656.
