APR Answers Questions on Altered Proposal

The American Prairie Reserve (APR) recently announced plans to alter their proposal for year-round grazing on nearly 300,000 acres of public land to seasonal grazing on 48,000 acres, in a move the group said was a compromise and a response to local concerns. Chuck Denowh, with United Property Owners of Montana (UPOM), a group opposed to APR’s plans, warned the move was not an “olive branch”, but more of a “trojan horse,” saying APR was merely attempting to set precedence with a smaller proposal.

APR’s Senior External Relations Manager Beth Saboe, a former television journalist who was raised in eastern Montana, joined Voices of Montana host Tom Schultz to answer questions and take calls and text questions on APR’s decision.
