Things are changing in the way producers should look at their farms. The soil is a living organism, just as our bodies are. We have no problem with feeding and drink water for us. So what about your soil on your farms. There are three demonstations being done around the state on soll health. They are in Dewey County, Kay County and Greer County. We will be monitoring these sites with the assistance of NRCS. Be watching for further information to be posted as the projects progress along.

Lesser Prairie Chicken Initiative
The Lesser Prairie Chicken Initiative (LPCI) provides financial and technical assistance to
landowners and operators for reducing threats to the species and enhancing and maintaining existing habitats in high priority areas. LPCI objectives will be funded by NRCS through the Conservation Technical Assistance Program, Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP).
The primary focus for the LPCI is upland wildlife habitat management. Participants can receive technical and financial assistance to implement supporting conservation practices including brush management, prescribed grazing, range planting, prescribed burning and restoration of rare and declining habitats.
The following counties are offering signups under the statewide initiative: Alfalfa, Beaver,
Beckham, Cimarron, Custer, Dewey, Ellis, Harper, Major, Roger Mills, Texas, Washita, Woods and Woodward.
