Ghost River Ranch
Property Owners' Association
Get Paid to Provide Water for the Cows
GRR is currently looking to provide additional water sources to facilitate the contract and to utilize the grazing opportunity on more acres of the ranch. GRR would pay $250.00 to property owners who may be willing to participate in providing water on their property. The grazing contract owner would provide all equipment, materials and labor to establish the water source from an existing well. Property owners who participate could also utilize the water source for their own livestock.
The local Natural Resource Conservative Service (NRCS) also has a cost share program that is offered
to property owners who may be willing to drill a new well on their property for cattle water.
The contract would be between the interested property owner and the NRCS, not GRR.
If anyone is interested in participating in providing additional water sources for grazing cattle
or has questions, please contact one of the board members for additional information.
