So this is where my tax dollars are going.
Went to a Small Acres-Big Management workshop last night. A work shop to manage small farm/ranches put on by the Natural Conservation Resource District. Had a varity of speakers but none seemed to be on the right sheet of music.
Fish and Game says not to build shelter belts because it cause game to gather and become too congested. State Forestry says build shelter belts because it makes for wind brakes and attracts wildlife.
County Extension Officer says to cross fence pastures to increase grasing, Fish and Game says cross fencing hurts animals.
One guy from the forest service says build wind brakes to conserve energy. Next forest service guy says wind brakes cause drifting so build snow fences at least 150 feet from the house and road.
Best one was forest service will pay for the cost of planting trees and the fire supression secion of the forest service will pay you to cut them.
I guess I'm just too dumb to see the big picture.
