The National Public Lands Grazing Campaign (2002) states that ranchers pay $1.43 per animal unit month (AUM) to the federal government for grazing.
An AUM, or animal unit month, is the amount of forage required to support five ewes and their lambs for 1 month.

But the refuge's value to Americans, whether they live in Burns or Boston, cannot be measured in animal unit months or tons of hay.
