DROUGHT Concerns –

ATTENTION: Crop and livestock producers. Information is needed! We would love to ask you a few questions to provide feedback to help our State and Federal funding sources understand the scope and scale of what’s needed to aid drought impacts. Val Turner is leading this task and would be glad to speak with you!

Our natural resources are the most valuable asset we have and are the most worthwhile to protect.

To waste, to destroy our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed.
