Allotment

An area of land designated and managed for the grazing of livestock by one or more livestock operators with a prescribed number of livestock for a prescribed period of time. It generally consists of public lands, but may include parcels of private and other Federal or State owned lands. Though an entire area may be divided into allotments, all land will not be grazed, because other uses, such as recreation or tree plantings, may be more important at a given time.
