Quail rangeland enrollment
Wilson County is among other Texas counties listed as target counties for the Rolling Plains Quail Rangeland initiative. This initiative is to benefit landowners where the enrolled acreage is at least 90 percent rangeland or will be rangeland after restoration.
The applicant must agree to implement a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service approved grazing or wildlife management plan that’s beneficial to quail and other grassland birds. Practices eligible for potential payment rate include, but are not limited to, native grass range planting, prescribed grazing, and brush management. Higher priority will be given to applicants allotting 75 percent or greater of their property to the practices listed above.
For more information or to set up an appointment with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service located at 1106 10th St. (U.S. 181) in Floresville, call 830-393-3555, ext. 3, to discuss this and other agricultural payment rate programs the USDA offers.
