Waste of the West - Livestock Grazing

http://www.wasteofthewest.com/Chapter3.html

Has anyone heard about this? From what I've read elsewhere apparently the west is extremely unproductive with its livestock, with the east far surpassing the west in production with far less land use. The public pays good money for the western grazers to just let cattle trample on land, rendering it infertile, and pollute with bovine emissions. On top of it all is this cowboy myth surrounding public lands grazers, you know, free spirited remnants of the old west. But, in reality they're actually just freeloading.

What do you guys think about this situation?
