Tri-County Conservation District

The area of the Tri-County Conservation District occupies a portion of the southeast part of Perkins, and the northeast part of Meade and an area across the middle of Ziebach County, in a 16 inch rainfall belt. The land is undulating to rolling, with drainage to the south into the Cheyenne River and some to the north into the Moreau. There is fairly rapid drainage. There is also a rather wide variation of soil, varying from heavy clay to a loamy and in some areas a somewhat sandy soil. These soil factors, combined with low rainfall, create a situation less favorable for farming and more favorable for ranching.
