Environmental Services Program
To make a positive contribution to the environment and, at the same time, increase the productivity and profitability of cattle operations.
The Environmental Services Program is available to North Dakota Beef producers, including cow-calf operators, backgrounders, finishers and stockers.
Cattlemen voluntarily participate in this confidential, obligation-free program.
Requesting an assessment is simple and confidential, plus the producer is under no obligation to make suggested changes.
* Cattlemen contact the ND Stockmen's Association.
* The environmental services director schedules an on-site appointment.
* The director visits with the producer and evaluates the site.
* After the assessment, the director may conclude no changes, or only management practice alterations are necessary.
* If the director determines a problem, he will recommend solutions to improve the environmental soundness of the operation.
* The director also aids the cattleman in filing the appropriate paperwork, seeking cost-share assistance and identifying qualified resource people (engineers, contractors, etc.)
The Stewardship Support Program
is the segment of Environmental
Services that provides 60 percent cost-share
assistance. These program funds apply to the
components of the operation
that support environmental and
animal health improvements.
