Approximately one-fifth of the New Mexico State Trust Land grazing leases are renewed annually. Renewal applications are mailed out around mid-June. They need to be completed and returned to the State Land Office on or before 5:00 p.m. on Aug. 1 to protect the current lessee’s right to match a competitive bid. An instruction sheet is included with all lease renewals and applications to lease state trust land. Applicants are urged to follow the instructions carefully to avoid any problems.
Any application received after 5:00 pm on Sept. 1 will not be awarded to the current lessee if the State Land Office has received a competitive bid from another party. The lease renewal must be IN the State Land Office no later than 5:00 p.m. on Sept. 1 to preserve the option to participate in a sealed competitive bid process. Lease renewals received after this date will not be given the option to enter into a sealed competitive bid if a competing bid has been submitted for the lease.
Renewal contracts not received by Sept. 30 will result in the leases’ expiration and classification as open acreage. Any interested applicant may apply for New Mexico State Trust Land in open acreage. (Faxes and emails cannot be accepted.)
Anyone wishing to submit a competitive bid must obtain the necessary forms from the State Land Office and return the completed forms by Sept. 1.
