Conservation Services & Machinery Rental

The District offers services and machinery to benefit conservation efforts in Clinton County.

In 2013, the District purchased a Great Plains No-Till Drill for use by area farmers and landowners to reduce the amount of tillage necessary for seeding pastures, hay fields and cover crops.  In 2021, we purchased a second drill and decided to keep the old drill going to give us more capacity.
