This project, once fully operational, will produce and store 500,000 bails of hay a year, and within three years this should be able to complete mitigate the effects of drought.
Despite climatic and weather conditions ranchers will be able to ensure that their herds never succumb to hunger and that lack of pasture will no long lead to herd die off. In addition this effort helps reduce conflict as herds will no longer need to be driven to far off locations in search of pasture.

We also plan to grow this project bringing in large and small scale farmers to do the same, and the county will assist them with both training an equipment to help facility this project and build resilience.
