Diversity in crop production enhances wildlife propagation. Corn, milo, wheat and soybean all play certain roles in the lives of the many species found at Lone Tree Trails. Winter Wheat provides excellent nesting cover and protection for hens and their broods. Corn provides protection for White-tailed and Mule Deer and full-grown Pheasants. Soybeans provide grazing for deer and antelope and loafing areas for Pheasants. Milo is a preferred feeding site for maturing pheasants.
Wildlife thrives through the winter on gleanings left behind by harvest machines. There is a harmonious coexistence between wildlife and efficient agricultural food production.
