    No, I imagine that the resources are there just for the landowner.

    See if the landowner is interested in any kind of cost share projects, and if so, find out from the NRCS what is available for that property, and see about getting the landowner in there to line things out.

    90acres, have you ever worked with your local Private Land Conservationist with MDC? This would be a good idea if you haven't. They will help you figure out what programs either Federal or State will work best for you and get you squared away. Go to http://mdc.mo.gov/regions , on the right hand side you will see 'who is my local contact'. Click your county and there will be a listing for the PLC near you. Good luck and let me know if you have any problems.

    If I may just add a little feedback, sometimes PLC's aren't very "customer service" oriented and hopefully the NRCS folks are much better.

    Thanks for the info. I live in Cole, my ground is in Osage. I had a walkthru with a plc about 10 years ago but couldn't afford to do anything, I'll have to see what I can learn.

    Is NRCS and PLC related programs?

    PLC is going to be best geared to be able to explain to you how you can use NRCS programs to help benefit wildlife on a property.

    I don't think I can add much advice, so I'll just share my experience. I've worked directly with my PLC for the last 5 years & he's done nothing but steer me in the right direction & taken me by the hand when needed. He's been my go between between the NRCS, MDC & FSA offices in getting me qualified for whatever programs best suited our goals for our farm. The most recent experience is getting us setup with the MDC on a WHIP program involving TSI(timber stand improvement) Edge feathering & green browse establishment.

    Give em a call 90, they're there to work with you.
