STERLING CITY, Texas — The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will conduct a Predator Behavior Program at 9:00 a.m., June 26, in the Sterling County Community Center, 601 4th St. in Sterling City.

“As can be surmised from the title, this program is a bit different than some of our other predator-related programs,” said Chad Coburn, AgriLife Extension agent in Sterling County. “This program will be more about why livestock predators behave as they do.”

Dr. John Tomecek, AgriLife Extension wildlife specialist at San Angelo, will be the key presenter.

“Dr. Tomecek will delve into predator biology and behaviors that will help us understand the when, why and how of predation,” Coburn said. “Producers can then use this knowledge to tailor their livestock and predator management practices. He’ll deal mostly with coyotes, but will also discuss other West Central Texas predators.”

Individual registration is $10 due upon arrival.

For more information, contact Coburn at 325-378-3181.
