The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has announced that it will host a public tour of the Axtell Contract Off-Range Corrals, in Axtell, Utah, on Wednesday, April 19, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., local time.

The facility is one of two Utah facilities that provide care to wild horses removed from the range. This is the second public tour offered since the privately owned and operated facility opened in June 2015. Attendees will have an opportunity to tour the facility; observe wild horses currently held at the facility, including the some from the Sulphur Herd Management Area that took place in January; and participate in general discussion about the BLM’s Wild Horse and Burro Program.

The BLM said a quarantine put in place after some horses at the facility exhibited signs of respiratory disease will not impact the scheduled tour. 

The facility is located at 13500 South 10490 West (mile marker 235.2 on Highway 89) in Axtell, approximately six miles south of Gunnison, Utah, and eight miles north of Salina, Utah. Please note that some map applications do not recognize this address
