Grazing Allotments and Base Properties

Nathanael Johnson continues to impress me.

His piece on the Oregon Malheur sit-in/occupation offers a new piece of info: grazing allotments are connected to "base properties" and their value is capitalized into the market price of the property (much as tobacco allotments were capitalized into the value of the land to which they were attached).

[Update--apparently the local FSA office in the area was closed as a precautionary measure--not clear whether it's still closed.]
