Tri-River Area small acreage landowners are invited to a "Management of Small Acreage Pastures Self-Guided Tour," at the Delta County Fairgrounds at 403 S. 4th Street in Hotchkiss. The two-acre plot is located on the southeast corner of the fairgrounds, near the river.

The demonstration plot offers visitors a hands-on view of 17 species of irrigated grasses and another 17 species of dryland grasses suited for Tri-River Area climate and soils. These grasses can be used for agricultural and natural resource conservation purposes, such as: growing hay, grazing livestock, weed suppression, erosion control, and enhancement of wildlife habitat. The grasses are planted on furrows clearly labeled. Handout materials describing each of these grasses are also available.

Be sure to visit the Delta County Fair and take a few minutes to tour the grass pasture demonstration plot. The project is a cooperative effort by CSU Tri-River Area Extension, USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service, Delta County, Delta Conservation District, and the Colorado Association of Conservation Districts.
