Gaugler family honored as Achievement Winners
The Gaugler family was honored as the 2019 Achievement winners at the Grant County Soil Conservation Banquet Friday, Dec. 6. They were also honored at the North Dakota Association of Soil Conservation District convention on November 25, where they were presented with a framed picture of their farm, and attended a banquet to honor all Achievement winners from across the state.
Roger and Ardella both grew up on family farms. Shortly after they got involved with farming and ranching, the drought of the 80s hit. They turned to their faith and searched God's word for a verse they could hang on to and lift them up.
According to Roger, practices like cross fencing, pipelines and tanks for better water distribution on rangeland ranked the highest on his list of conservation practices he is most proud of. Their rotational grazing and deferred grazing not only provide better forage for the cattle, but also leave areas untouched for the benefit of local wildlife. Food plots, delayed haying and haying in a wildlife friendly way show the Gauglers' concern for all of their natural resources.
