How We Can Help

USU Extension offers expertise and pertinent information specific to the needs of our county

Agriculture

Millard County is one of the top producing agricultural regions in Utah. The most productive farmland is found in the desert valleys with the Sevier River as an important source of water. Grazing lands are found throughout the county, with most stock moving from the valleys and foothills in the winter to the high mountains in the summer. Private lands comprise 13 percent of the county, while the remaining 87 percent is under management of the Federal and State governments.

Have Your Well Water Tested for Free!

Your Local Soil Conservation District is Sponsoring a non-regulatory, free ground water testing program for people who have their own water supply systems (wells, springs). Water will be tested for bacteria, pesticides, nitrates, and inorganic minerals. The tests are performed by the State Ground Water Program, administered by the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF).

For well water tests, contact Mark Quilter at 801-538-9950 or mquilter@utah.gov.
