TAYLOR GRAZING ACT PREFERENCES
25-901. Grazing preference appurtenant to base property. The United States congress, in fulfilling the constitutional obligation to manage the property of the United States, passed the Taylor grazing act in 1934. Through this act, congress acknowledged grazing preference rights and provided for adjudication of allotments on which the grazing preference right was exercised. Livestock ranches are bought, sold, traded and inherited with assurance that the appurtenant grazing preference rights will be transferred to the new base property owner. Therefore, a grazing preference right shall be considered an appurtenance of the base property through which the grazing preference is maintained.
