Alfalfa County, OK
Situated in north-central Oklahoma in the state's northernmost tier
of counties, Alfalfa County lies in a wheat-producing region. The county's name reflects the crops of alfalfa hay
once produced there and also references Gov. William "Alfalfa Bill" Murray, who was instrumental in dividing
Woods County into three counties, one of which was Alfalfa. The land has rolling hills, meandering rivers, and
grassy prairie plains, also called the Red Bed Plains. Land and water area total 881.44 square miles. Bordered
by Kansas on the north, the county abuts Woods County on the west, Major County on the south, and Grant and Garfield
counties on the east. Near the county's center is the Great Salt Plains, both a federal wildlife refuge and a state
park. It lies in the drainage of the Salt Fork of the Arkansas River, which crosses the county from west to east,
and the two are the county's major surface features. Southern Alfalfa County drains south into the Cimarron River.
