Hickory County Soil & Water Conservation District
The Hickory County SWCD first purchased rental equipment in 2002 with funds provided with the approval of the Weaubleau Creek SALT (Special Area land Treatment) project. Additional funds became available in 2005 with the addition of the Pomme De Terre SALT project. With the SALT projects, matching grants and local funds generated from the rental equipment, it has allowed the district to accumulate a list of agricultural tools available to the landowners of Hickory County. If you are interested in any of this equipment, call Larry McLain at 417-745-6613 Ext. 101.
