Winter forage, surface water rights meetings set
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.

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.
