Weed, brush management meeting
Cattlemen have been experiencing some tough times, said Dennis Hale, Wilson County Extension agent for the Texas AgriLife Extension Service.
To assist the cattlemen, the Texas AgriLife Extension Service will conduct a five-part series -- Restarting Your Cattle Operation -- to address the issue of restarting your cattle operation. The programs will focus on all aspects of recovery ranging from forage production to financial considerations.
The next program in the series, weed and brush management, is Wednesday, Feb. 29, at 7 p.m. in the Falls City Community Hall in Falls City.
Dr. Megan Dominguez, Extension range specialist, will discuss aspects of weed and brush management. Dr. Larry Falconer, Extension economist, will discuss the economics of weed and brush control.
We will collect weed and brush plants for an ID exercise and contest, with prizes to be awarded to the winners.
One general, one laws and regulations, and one integrated pest management continuing education units will be offered.
There will be a $10 participation fee, payable at the door.
For more information, contact Hale at 830-393-7357.
