Re: Acre changes and adjustments for 2019

always has been in ks...... Nebraska has a bigger and shallower supply   

 

What gets me is ...... we along the southern border.... the one without a fence..............  in ks......... with pretty decent dry land production.  Knowing where we had good water by testing in the 60's,  had chosen to not pump and maximize production until the state threatened to stop all new development by law.....under its first in time= first in right law structure......... creating a loose it or use it time period...... which also included up to a 10 year "proving" time frame where you can pump all you can to set your maximum level for your water right...... (if you pump just what you need then that is all you get.)  ------ we know bad bureaucratic authoritarianism....

 

Now the point..... who are the first to step up and lobby the state to shut down the use of water rights........... the folks who used the most water and started pumping in the 50's and lost volume in recent years.  Your neighbor over in the area that has been pumping nearly unregulated for 60 years.  Who thinks if the new wells can be shut off his might last longer.   They have a senior right and want those junior rights stopped.

 

Farmers are selfish trash, too.

 

Kansas is a mine field for Land investment...
