Agriculture & Horticulture
Our county's agriculture must remain competitive within local, national and even international markets. This requires a continuous flow of appropriate technology addressing local needs within New Mexico. Our Extension program works to maintain and strengthen programs that address these needs. Water is one of the most important limiting resources for our county's agriculture. All aspects of water use affect agricultural efficiency and profitability. Water management will become more critical as water demands for urbanization and industrialization increase.
2013 Depredation Report Form
We were asked to create a simplified version of the depredation report form that used to be available from NMSU. This form will help you begin the process of reporting to other agencies, and help us keep a better record of animal loss in the county. We ask that you file a copy with us, either by hand delivering it or emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
