Unless agriculture represents the best use of the land under permit for livestock areas (special use pastures) and is compatible with other management of the National Forest as specified in the Forest Land and Resource Management Plan, phase out existing permits, and combine land with an existing grazing permit or retain for use by wildlife as appropriate. In the few instances where a livestock area permit is continued, base fees for special use pastures on (1) a pasture rental rate or (2) in the absence of available market rentals for comparison, 5% of land value. Establish valuation schedules for both of these approaches for all forests.
