A. A person owning or having charge of sheep or goats who knowingly herds, grazes or pastures them or recklessly permits them to be herded, grazed or pastured on a cattle range previously occupied by cattle or upon a range usually occupied by cattle either as a spring, summer or winter range, is guilty of a class 2 misdemeanor and each day of violation of this section constitutes a separate offense.

A person who purchases an entire cattle range or lands or right to possession or use thereof, theretofore used as a cattle range or cattle grazing ground, or the grantees or assigns of any such person may thereafter use the range or ground as lambing or grazing grounds for sheep, subject to the provisions of this section.
