I have 30 acres of dry farm high on the west side of cache valley and would like like to cover it with many trees that are likely to survive and will eventually provide shade. What should I plant?

Unless you can irrigate continuously there are very few trees that will survive; really only junipers. If you can irrigate then any tree that can survive high soil pH will work; I would go with some native bigtooth maples & maybe oaks & mountain-mahoganies.
