BLM Seeks Bids For Oklahoma Pastures To Host Wild Horses

Posted: Updated:

The Bureau of Land Management is seeking proposals from contractors who can provide humane care for a minimum of 200 wild horses in a free-roaming pasture setting on an annual basis.

BLM says it is an opportunity for land owners to diversify a ranching operation.

The deadline to submit a proposal is April 29.

Proposals must show that the pastures are located in one of the following states: Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon (excluding west of the Cascade Mountain Range), South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington (excluding west of the Cascade Mountain Range) and Wyoming.

Each proposal must include documentation to support the land’s carrying capacity and the contractor’s required per head/day cost. 

In addition to providing a quality pasture, the contractor is required to provide supplemental feed during the dormant months. 

The contracts are for a one-year period, with a renewal option for a four-year or nine-year period.

Under the authority of the 1971 Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act, as amended, the BLM manages and protects wild horses and burros while working to ensure that population levels are in balance with other public rangeland resources and uses, a statement says.
