Mission:
to provide technical, financial, and educational assistance to landowners/operators to conserve natural resources.

Vision 
Enhancing the natural environment through farming standard improvements and public education objectives by:

  • Gaining respect, trust, and rapport with producers, landowners, and the public; forming partnerships with them to meet their needs as well as preserve and improve our environment
  • Better educating the public on resource concerns of ranchers and producers
  • Voluntary participation (have a waiting list) of the public in district programs (workshops and financial assistance programs)
  • Being known by the community as good in resourcing revenue to fund projects
  • Getting "dollars on the ground" by being financially sound
  • 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
  • Replacing medusa head and skeleton weed in rangeland with good forage
