  • Being known by the community as good in resourcing revenue to fund projects

  • Meeting and/or exceeding goals

Becoming a pioneer district in the adoption of minimal disturbance CRP take out and cropping systems; managed grazing allowed on CRP; better management of CRP take-out during drought years.

  • Cutting wind erosion by 75%

Having a strong program of supporting pasture and range management resulting in rangelands in much better condition

  • Continuing a robust program of installation of cross fencing and solar wells
