As a result of the above agreement, the BLM spent approximately 412 thousand dollars on various range improvements (e.g. pipelines, wel!s, fences, seedings, spring developments) between fiscal year 1967 and 1976. In addition, the grazing association spent over $2,000 in 1973 for a fence and pipeline and more than $3, 000 in 1971 on various spray projects. Thus, it is estimated that more than 415 thousand dollars were spent on range improvements in the Allotment from 1967 through fiscal year 1976 (June 1977). The 415 thousand dollars spent does not represent all of the investment costs that were spent in the area, however. Minutes of the grazing association list numerous entries where individual ranchers invested time and/or materials working on various projects.
