Cache County Resource Assessment

Cache County Resource Assessment

Cache County is located north of Salt Lake City and borders Idaho. Logan is centralized in the county and also home to Utah State University. Cache County is rich in agricultural production. In 2004, Cache County was fourth in the state of Utah in cash receipts from farming, according to the Utah Agriculture Statistics Service.

Beef and dairy operations are in abundance. Irrigation of cropland is necessary for sustained plant growth. Dryland farming and grazing is also noted as major agricultural businesses. Increased uses of public lands continue to pressure grazing rights. Specialty farming is occurring with a focus on niche markets. Land preservation and open space is increasing in concern among citizens of the valley.

Cache County consists of 1170 square miles, with a variety of land uses in production agriculture or used for grazing. Average low winter temperatures: 13.9 degrees; average high summer temperatures: 85.4 degrees; average precipitation: 16.58 inches. The average growing season for the region is 120-160 days.
