Ranches for Sale: Rainfed Farming is Expected to Grow in Importance

"Agriculture and ranching consume a considerable amount of water across the U.S. In some parts of the country, livestock consume even more water than people. Thus, water availability is a leading concern whenever agricultural production is discussed. With the onset of climate change and extreme climate events such as droughts and floods, efficient use of water in the agricultural industry is only expected to grow in importance. Agriculture implores both rainfed and irrigation farming. Many large ranches for sale are heavily invested in both, but of the two, it’s the latter that often requires the bigger financial and capital investment. As a result, rainfed agriculture is an option that many ranch owners are interested in, and one that may play a major role in the success of ranches and agricultural lands in the future."
