Distribution of common-property timber to holders of historically chartered wood and grazing rights amounted to approximately 151,000 cubic meters in 2009. In addition to the normal distribution quantities, this figure includes timber used to repair buildings that have been damaged or destroyed by storm as well as timber that is distributed in natura in place of payments. Due to higher than average advance purchases of timber in previous years as a consequence of windthrow and beetle damage, the quantity of timber distributed in fiscal 2009 was comparatively low. The exercise of grazing rights was consistent with the long-term average of approximately 43,000 large livestock units, the equivalent of roughly 72,000 head of cattle on ÖBf land. Two thirds of these are grazing rights which allow the animals to seek forage predominantly in forest areas.
