Annual Report

The commissioners of the Sioux County Soil & Water Conservation District present our annual report. This report reflects on the amount of conservation work accomplished with the cooperation of Sioux County Farmers.

We, the commissioners, want to thank the many organizations that assisted us during the year. We appreciate the support given by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, Division of Soil Conservation, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Farm Service Agency, and the Sioux County Extension Service. We also thank the Sioux County Conservation Board and Director, Sioux County Board of Supervisors, and the Sioux County Engineer. We hope our cooperative working relations continue as we work to protect our natural resources. 

The cooperatives, contractors, banks, implement dealers, realtors, and others who give financial help to print and distribute this report deserve a special acknowledgement. A special thank you to all the local newspapers, and radio station KSOU for carrying our conservation news. (Click here to find our complete list of sponsors)

This report conveys that Sioux County producers have been responsible caretakers of our natural resources. They know conservation is the right thing to do for their farm, for their neighbors, and for future generations. We have an impressive record of protecting our natural resources and it is our responsibility to improve on that record.

Howard Hulshof,  Sioux County SWCD Chairman
