The State of Indiana as well as the Federal Government provide several Conservation Programs that provide cost-share assistance to applicants. The goal of cost-share assistance is to make conservation practices more economical for land owners. Conservation practices range from pasture fencing to hay planting to land preservation. Approximately $4.2 million has been spent on conservation land treatment since 1993, with over $300,000 being spent last year. Last year Conservation Programs were completed on 2,067 acres within the county.
