The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s final rule listing the lesser prairie chicken as threatened and endangered under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, “further stresses already fragile drought-stricken rural economies while alienating producers who have worked diligently and voluntarily on wildlife conservation projects,” the American Farm Bureau Federation Market Intel service said in a study released last week.

The lesser prairie chicken is a grassland bird known from southeastern Colorado, western Kansas, eastern New Mexico, western Oklahoma, and the Texas Panhandle.
