Are you a farmer or rancher who sees a need for improvements on their land, but can’t afford to fund the project on your own?
The Sierra Soil & Water Conservation District is still accepting applications for their Agricultural Cost Share Program for Fiscal Year 2012. This program is based on fiscal year funding, July 1-June 30, and application deadlines will be extended and accepted until June 30.
The Sierra Soil & Water Conservation District and the NRCS are working together to help you improve your farm or ranch’s efficiency by helping to defray the costs of conservation practices, such as livestock fencing, livestock water pipeline, concrete ditches lining, drip irrigation systems, land leveling, solar pumps, water troughs, and more. Application period is September through June of the following year.
This year, the Sierra Soil & Water Conservation District will fund 60 percent of the conservation practice up to $6,000.
For more information, call (575) 894-2212, or stop by our office at 2101 South Broadway in Truth or Consequences to pick up and fill out an application. We look forward to helping you, the people, help the land.
