New entryway for the FOAL Property!
Board member Marshall Dominick did a phenomenal job coordinating the installation of our new entryway, which included fencing and a cattle guard. It looks terrific and will be a welcoming entrance to our proposed interpretive center. Marshall worked with Rob Hunt (WYDOT), Larry Nicholson (excavating), Carl Hunt (fencing), and Kevin Inbody (cattle guard) to make this dream a reality. Thank you all!
Continuing support of the BLM’s PZP fertility control program
FOAL continues to support the fertility control program of the BLM by purchasing PZP serum and adjuvant to treat the mares in the McCullough Peaks HMA. We also provide volunteers to assist in administering the treatment. This marks the 4th year we have cooperated with the BLM in this program within the scope of our Memorandum of Understanding. The program has reduced the birth rate from 26 foals born in 2011 to only 3 births this year. The purpose of the field darting fertility control program is to maintain the appropriate management level (AML) which prevents the necessity of helicopter conducted gathers.
