TAKE ADVANTAGE OF DROUGHT MANAGEMENT RESOURCES‼

Despite the recent storms in the region, New Mexico’s drought intensity levels remain at severe, extreme or exceptional, according to the most recent U.S. Drought Monitor. As farmers begin to plant crops, the Southwest Border Food Protection and Emergency Preparedness Center at NMSU and the New Mexico Department of Agriculture remind producers of the seriousness of the drought situation. Producers are encouraged to visit the new drought resource page on the NMDA website: https://www.nmda.nmsu.edu/drought-resources/.

A little related to the "backyard basics" workshops a while back-- where does one find if there are regulations on backyard chickens in El Paso county? I know some neighbors have them, but I don't want to walk up, knock on the door and say "Hey, I want to have chickens and guineas, what are the rules around here?" *grin* Yes, I tried searching teh county website, and online results just tell me what El Paso city does!
