Free Drill Use for Buffers!

In 2016 the Goodhue County SWCD Supervisors adopted a local drill program for landowners interested in seeding down buffer areas next to streams and ditches. The SWCD will provide the use of the drill and provide a grassed waterway seed mix to your site for free. Landowners will need to provide a >50-70hp tractor to pull the drill. We ask that you call to the office or fill out the online form to the right and you'll be placed on the drill list. Please be patient for delivery as we are expecting a large interest in the program.
