Ranchers may apply for water restoration help

Landowners may apply to receive up to $4,000 to defray cost of livestock water projects including on restoration of existing ponds, well development, and spring development.

The Kansas State Conservation Commission approved the use of $500,000 of fiscal year 2012 cost-share funding to go toward immediate assistance to livestock producers in drought-affected Kansas.

Pastures that currently have limited or no existing water are the primary targets for this initiative.

Producers will have 45-days to sign-up for the cost-share assistance initiative and will be eligible to receive up to $2,000 per project or $4,000 per landowner. Producers can apply at Farm Services Agency, 301 Eisenhower Dr., Marion.
