grazing fees, am I missing something

Differs in some places but the general federal grazing rate was raised in 2015 from 1.35/AUM to an exorbitant 1.69.

 

Let's say it takes, what, 20-30 AUMs to put a $1000 yearling calf out the door. Every operation is going to differ as far as how long the grazing season is, how much other seasonal feed/grazing is required etc.

 

But not sounding like a bad business to me.
