State of Arizona Livestock Loss Board
The Livestock Loss Board was established pursuant to Arizona Revised Statutes 17-491, 17-492 and 17-493 to establish and implement procedures to compensate landowners, lessees or livestock operators for wolf depredation on livestock, and to administer the Livestock Compensation Fund. Notices of board meetings will be posted on this page.
The Livestock Loss Board meeting notices, agendas, and revised agendas will be posted at the Arizona Game and Fish Department Headquarters and on the Department’s website. Agendas may be revised and additional items may be added up to 24 hours prior to the meeting as authorized by A.R.S. §38-431.02.
To address the economic impacts of wolves on individual producers by reimbursing confirmed and probable wolf caused losses, help to reduce their losses by approving projects and funding programs that will discourage and prevent wolves from killing livestock, provide funding for Pay for Presence, and seek appropriate levels of secure funding to support the actions of the Board.
