RFD-TV Features Utah FB’s Randy Parker in Sage Grouse Story

Utah Farm Bureau CEO Randy Parker was recently interviewed on RFD-TV about partnering with AFBF in a lawsuit to stop overreach regarding the Greater Sage Grouse. Utah FB and AFBF asked a federal district court in Utah to overturn a host of illegal land-use restrictions hampering ranchers in the western states. The groups made the request as part of a motion to intervene on the side of the State of Utah in a lawsuit against the federal government. The litigation challenges federal land management plans imposing restrictions on ranching and other human activities in Utah as part of a larger effort to manage federal lands for species protection rather than for “multiple uses” as required by law.
