Just to give credit where it's due, Guy Baldwin in California and Marvin
Hegge in Oregon, S. Dakota and Arizona, plus Tom Ward, Penny Livingston, and
several others have put in Yeomans-style keyline earthworks on a large scale
too. Marvin had a 250-acre ranch near me in southern Oregon that was
beautifully laid out with ponds and terraces on the keyline plan. Sadly, it
was sold to a grape grower who didn't quite get it. But there are
Yeomans-style plows in southern Oregon and California that get regular work.
