The Texas AgriLife Extension Service offices of Wilson and Karnes counties are sponsoring a “Winter Forage and Drought” meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 7 p.m. in the Falls City Community Hall in Falls City.

Dr. Larry Falconer, Extension economist, and Dr. Dan Fromme, Extension agronomist, will discuss winter pasture management for cattle utilization. Winter pastures are extremely expensive to establish and you must manage them properly to be successful. If it does rain, many acres of winter pastures will be established to provide grazing for cattle operations.

Since rain has been short everywhere, we will also address the tax implications of selling livestock and the new sales tax exempt program that takes effect Jan. 1, 2012. We will also discuss the forage situation and whether to hold or sell cows and the economics involved.

The Texas AgriLife Extension Service will offer two continuing education units at the meeting -- one each in general, and laws and regulations.

There will be a $10 registration fee for the program payable at the door.

For more information, call 830-393-7357.

‘Surface Water Rights’

The Texas AgriLife Extension Service and the San Antonio River Authority (SARA) will sponsor a workshop on protecting and preserving water titled “Surface Water Rights.” The event will be held Thursday, Sept. 15, from 5:30-9 p.m. in the Falls City Community Hall in Falls City.

The Texas AgriLife Extension Service will offer three continuing education units at the event -- one each in general, laws and regulations, and integrated pest management.

Sandwiches and light refreshments will be served.

For more information or to register, call Karen Opiela with the San Antonio River Authority at 210-302-3280 or e-mail
