The irrigation water is held in reservoirs throughout the basin, sometimes called "potholes", and is then delivered to the farm fields by way of 331 main canals, 1,339 miles of lateral canals, 3,500 miles of drains and wasteways. Wow!

|A field of beautiful timothy hay. |
This will be cut two times this year, and baled as hay for horses
Look at that pretty sky!
|Haylige. Like silage, only hay. This was harvested in 2012,|

The milk cows love it, and it provides super-nutrition for them too.
