BOERNE -- Landowners and land managers will have an opportunity to become better land stewards while boosting animal performance and net income during a two-day workshop on “The Fundamentals of Planned Grazing” Thursday, Aug. 15, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday, Aug. 16, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The workshop will be held at the Cibolo Nature Center & Farm located at 140 City Park Road in Boerne.

The workshop will cover proper stocking rates and calculation of graze and rest/recovery periods to boost forage production and improve animal performance. Participants will learn to maximize forage production by getting the right number of animals to the right place for the right amount of time.

Presented by Texas Planned Grazing, the workshop costs $400 per person, with discounts provided for team members from the same ranch. Fees include one set of instructional materials per ranch. Details are available at www.cibolo.org/calendar.

Rainwater-catchment

John Kight, an engineer and owner of home rainwater-catchment and solar-energy systems, will offer the latest technological information and practical advice for using water- and energy-saving technology during Harvesting Rainwater and Solar Energy set for Saturday, Aug. 17, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Participants will hear a presentation in the Cibolo Nature Center library and then carpool to Kight’s home to see his systems in action. Kight’s rainwater-catchment system supplies all the water for his family’s household and landscape needs. His grid-connected solar energy panel is also tied to a battery backup and sufficient energy to power all of his appliances with the exception of air conditioning. The workshop costs $35, $25 for Cibolo Nature Center members.

Register in advance for these Cibolo Nature Center workshops at www.cibolo.org or learn more by calling 830-249-4616.
