CROSS PLAINS, Texas — The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will conduct a tricounty forage seminar January 24 at the First Baptist Church in Cross Plains.
Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m., and the program will start at 9:00 a.m. Six Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units will be offered.
The AgriLife Extension offices conducting the program are from Callahan, Coleman and Brown counties.
“This annual event has become one of the premier educational programs concerning forage production and hay in our region,” said Scott Anderson, AgriLife Extension agent in Brown County. “Hay prices in our area are trending lower, but that is not necessarily good news if you are trying to sell hay. Our goal is to help producers maximize their profits and forage quality by investing their production dollars wisely.”
Topics will include: forage insect pest management, interpreting forage tests, weed and brush control in forages, where to cut production costs, U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service program update and pesticide laws and regulations.
Individual preregistration is $20 by January 19 and $25 thereafter. Preregister by calling any of the cooperating AgriLife Extension offices: Callahan County, 325-854-5835; Coleman County, 325-625-4519; or Brown County, 325-646-0386. Fees are due upon arrival and include a catered noon meal.
