WASHINGTON -- Breaking a decades-old deadlock over the management of public lands in the West, Democrats in the House and Senate yesterday agreed to raise the fees that ranchers pay to graze cattle and sheep on about 260 million acres of federal land in 16 Western states.The agreement appeared to represent an important victory for Interior Secretary Bruce E. Babbitt, who has staked his tenure on developing a new "land ethic" that puts protecting the environment on an equal footing with developing resources.

In a decision that could affect Maryland farmers down the road, a federal judge in Seattle recently issued a temporary injunction that halts cattle grazing and the harvesting of hay from land in a federal conservation program. The legal battle stems from a decision by U.S. Agriculture Secretary Ed Schafer in May to allow cattle and other livestock to graze on 24 million acres of land enrolled in the government's Conservation Reserve Program. He also allowed grass on the land to be harvested as hay. Commonly referred to by agriculture officials and farmers as CRP, the federal program started in 1985 allows landowners to idle environmentally sensitive land for conservation.

Ever seen a green steak?You probably never will. But in the figurative sense, the choice cuts from Lawrason Sayre's Angus herd bear the universal color of environmental protection.Since 1987, the 65-year-old Churchville farmer has been converting his traditional beef-cattle operation to one based on a feeding technique used extensively in New Zealand. The technique, called "rotational grazing," helps protect Mill Branch and other sensitive streams that lace through his Waffle Hill Farm and flow toward the Chesapeake Bay.Mr.

Carroll County sheriff's deputies learned early yesterday that it takes a lot of patience to persuade a 2,200-pound buffalo to go home when it wants to go on a late-night snack attack. No one was hurt - not even the buffalo - but officers spent several hours trying to contain the animal. Carroll deputies, state troopers, animal control officers and a local veterinarian were eventually successful, but not until after the animal had already grazed its way through Lineboro. "We figure now they won't need to mow their lawns this weekend," said Maj. Thomas Long, a sheriff's office spokesman.

Comet ISON's journey from outside the solar system toward the sun reaches its crescendo Thursday, and you can follow along live through a NASA live webcast. The comet will pass less than 700,000 miles from the sun's surface. Scientists and amateur astronomers will be paying close attention to any available observations of the comet to see if it survives its first close encounter with a star. If it stays together, it could mean some spectacular skywatching in December. But it's possible that the comet's nucleus of dust and ice could break into pieces or disintegrate.

UMFOLOZI, South Africa -- The ton and a half of rhinoceros grazing placidly next to the dirt road in this game park looked unconcerned by the fact that his kind had been rejected as mascot of Baltimore's potential NFL team.But, viewed from the car just a few feet away, it was hard to see how anyone could not think that rhinos would be the perfect name for a football team, certainly better than Bombers, which, in the South African context, seems to elevate terrorists to a position of admiration.

Washington. -- Mike Synar's little amendment, as the Oklahoma Democrat sees it, is intended only to recover for the taxpayers a realistic fee for the use of public grazing land. This same amendment, in the view of Republican James Hansen of Utah, would destroy the Western cattle business, ruin the environment and kill a great little industry.Since this session of Congress began in January, we have heard some fine fat arguments over gun control, election reform, foreign aid and heaven knows what, but for a knockdown, drag-out, bar-the-doors slugfest, in which facts are thrown through the windows as bystanders cheer, nothing is likely to surpass the fight over grazing fees.
