Some of the more sloping land has been seeded to grass. "Parrigin got a good stand of grass—one of , the best I've ever seen for the first year. This was the second year and he got some good grazing from it. The (primary reason for his good stand was that he feryi- ized when he planted." When Parrigin completes the terraces he has started and gets the sage brush out of his pastures, he will have completed his Great Plains consei-va- tion program. Another Salt Fork SCD cooperator sorting terraces is Wendell Morgan, who farms north of Samnonvood. He is doing this under the Great Plains program also.
