Your Farm
For Wildlife
Success in hunting on your farm is directly
related to how well you provide the basic elements
of a wildlife habitat - food, water, cover, and
space to raise young.
If you've done a good job, chances are
you will have a successful hunting season.
F
ive types of habitat occur
on farms - grasslands,
wetlands, cropland, woodlands,
and the farmstead.
A study shows that grass-
lands support 7 to 11 species
and up to 386 birds per acre.
Wetlands support 13 nesting
bird species and up to 702
birds per acre. Corn and
soybean row crops support 2
or 3 bird species and up to 88
birds per acre.
Using a few simple
techniques for plantings and
land management can enhance
wildlife habitat on different
areas of your property which
could dramatically improve
your next hunting season.
There are a number of cost-
sharing programs available
from state and federal
sources for conservation
practices.
Check with your Natural
Resources Conservation
Service, Farm Service Agency,
and state department of
natural resources for details.
These agencies can also
provide a list of inexpensive
sources for trees and shrubs
used to enhance wildlife
habitat and improve soil
conservation.

Following are some grassland
practices that you can use to
