Still waiting on that first call…..
Check it out:
A Central Valley rancher is advertising his water for sale in a newspaper’s classified section.
Under the farming equipment section, you’ll find Grover Francis’ ad. For 49 years, Francis raised cattle and grew pasture, but he decided to rip out his farm to plant almond trees.
“They only take a third as much water,” he said.
Since he won’t plant his trees until December, he won’t need his 40 inches of water allocated from the Oakdale Irrigation District. He placed an ad in the Modesto Bee classifieds.
