Agriculture is one our most important uses of the land. Along with mining it forms the basis of our modern lives. While hunters and gatherers were using stone implements to to get their vegetable and meat supplies before the advent of organized agriculture the effects of a reliable cultivated supply of grains, vegetables, fruits and meat is what allowed the human race to progress to the societies we live in today.
Grazing Allotments are the licensed use of the public lands to grow animals.
