The effort is a partnership between Southwest Badger RC&D’s Fee-for-Service Program and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife’s Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program, which provides financial and technical assistance to private landowners to improve fish and wildlife habitat. The Partners program provides up to 50% cost-share on eligible habit projects, including pasture seeding, fencing, brush control, and streambank restoration.
The cost to rent the drill is $11 per acre with a 10 acre minimum. Participants will also be asked at the time the drill is delivered to provide a $150 deposit that is fully refundable if the drill is returned in good condition. For full terms and conditions see the seed drill rental form online.
