Adams County SCD 2021 Conservation Achievement Award
The Buckmier Families accepted the ACSCD Achievement Award for 2021. Both families run a cow-calf operation North of Hettinger. During calving the two families split the herd between the two homesteads to share the workload. They have installed over 9000 feet of water pipeline and 35 tanks over the years. Their ranch includes several miles of cross- fenced land for better grass utilization while allowing ease of livestock handling. They are in the process of converting tillable acres into land for grazing and forage production to better meet the needs of their operation and conservation goals.
