Quivira Coalition Regenerate Field Days: OGALLALA FIELD DAY
OGALLALA FIELD DAY: SHIFTING PRODUCTION PRACTICES FOR EFFECTIVE WATER UTILIZATION & AQUIFER RECHARGE
WEDNESDAY, OCT 27TH CT| HEREFORD, TX
TIME 9AM-5PM | CAPACITY: TBA
ABOUT THE FIELD DAY
Water is life! Come and discover different approaches innovative farmers are using to enhance rainfall usage on the Texas Panhandle. Each farmer’s unique approach uses the same principles to increase the water infiltration and holding capacity of their soils. Hear from Chris Grotegut, Dr. Richard Teague, Dr. Pancho Abello, RN Hopper and Wayne Knight as they present and discuss management practices for sustainable water usage and aquifer recharge in the Ogallala Aquifer Region. The morning presentation event will be held at the Hereford Civic Centre, followed by an afternoon outing to Dr. Grotegut’s property. This program is in collaboration with NCAT and the Texas A&M Agrilife and is funded by the Tecovas Foundation & the Dixon Water Foundation.
ABOUT THE PROPERTY
Chris Grotegut, DVM, is a farmer, rancher, and practicing veterinarian in Deaf Smith County, Texas. He believes thinking of the Ogallala aquifer as a non-renewable resource ensures it will be pumped dry. Instead, farmers and society should look at the Ogallala Aquifer as rechargeable captured water. The Grotegut family has moved toward more efficient use of water, labor and equipment in their farming by transitioning much of their land toward native grass species and protecting playas.
