Excerpt from Preparing Land for Irrigation and Methods of Applying Water

Then, apart from the influence which early training may exert, there is always present the vital question of money. Many new settlers have not the means to prepare their fields for easy and efficient irriga tion. They are compelled to resort to crude methods, which rob them of a part of their possible profits.

The large stockmen pasture cattle and Sheep on public lands and irrigate only sufficient native meadow and alfalfa to supply the needs of their stock in midwinter. With this class irrigation is a side issue and seldom receives the attention which it deserves.

Others again have another excuse for their poor methods. They are tenants and wish to Obtain the greatest immediate returns for the least possible expense. At the other extreme one finds the so-called agriculturist, who makes his money selling merchandise in the city and spends it on his farm in the country. This class is content with small returns for large outlays; for to such people farming is a pastime.
