Local farms and ranches illustrate many conservation practices on their land. These practices are vital to the productivity of their operation. Visiting a local farm/ranch is a worthwhile experience to observe firsthand what strategies producers use to maximize their productivity while conserving the soil, water, and wildlife habitat on their land. Topics discussed may include; windbreaks, agricultural water use and irrigation management, range management, tillage and agronomy, wildlife habitat, and the importance of healthy rivers and riparian areas.
