Milk River Agri-Environmental Technical Services

We are very pleased to have been able to initiate an Agri-Environmental Group Plan within the South of the Divide area for local livestock and crop producers. This project covers the Rural Municipalities of 17, 18, 19, 43, 44, 45, 46, 49, and 51

Agriculture producers in the Milk River Watershed Area are now able to participate in an Agri-Environmental Group Plan (AEGP). If you have been considering making some changes, this is an opportunity for you to access funding for improvements to your farm or ranch, while also having a positive cumulative impact on the watershed as a whole.

Even if you do not have an individual Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) you can apply for Farm Stewardship Program funding for these Beneficial Management Practices (BMPs):

  • Invasive Plant Biocontrol and Targeted Grazing
  • Native Rangeland Grazing Management
  • Permanent Tame Forage
  • Riparian Area Grazing Management and Fencing
  • Permanent Native Forage
  • Riparian Grazing Management
  • Native Rangeland Grazing Management
  • Creek and Stream Crossings
  • Drainage Stewardship
  • Multi-Producer Water Management
  • Environmental Solutions
  • There is also funding available for Developing New Water sources, installing Off-site Watering Systems, and Decommissioning Old Water Wells through the Farm and Ranch Water Infrastructure Program.

    These projects are on a cost-share basis. Most require pre-approval before work begins. . Critical Habitat for species at risk is also a consideration before work begins. For more information please contact Mel Toppi at 306-621-3545 or aegp@sodcap.com or Krista Connick Todd at 306-671-7656 or westtech@sodcap.com
