Apply to graze on a PGR

On April 1, 1999, the responsibility for the care, handling and management of livestock and the forage resources was transferred to grazing reserve associations. Use of the grazing reserves by the associations is authorized by grazing management agreements.

Farmers and ranchers who wish to apply for grazing allotments on grazing reserves must apply to the appropriate grazing reserve office. The application deadline is:

January 15 in the Southeast and Northeast Regions
January 31 in the Southwest and Northwest Regions

Applications can be obtained from, and are submitted to the appropriate Provincial Grazing Reserve (PGR) office.
