Brackettville range management workshop set for July 27

BRACKETTVILLE – The Texas AgriLife Extension Service office in Kinney County will conduct a range management workshop from 5:30-8:30 p.m. July 27 at the Civic Center in Brackettville located at 200 E. Spring Street.

“This workshop will be all about understanding various range carrying capacities for livestock  and how to properly stock them,” said Tyler Bobinmyer, AgriLife Extension agent in Kinney County. “Knowing what forages are out there and how long they will last under our current dry conditions becomes more and more important as ranges continue to dwindle and feed prices skyrocket.”

Scheduled workshop speakers are Uvalde-based Drs. Rick Machen, AgriLife Extension livestock specialist, and Bob Lyons, AgriLife Extension range specialist. A representative will also be available from Agri-Insurance to provide information on rain insurance.

Two general Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units will be available for pesticide applicator license holders.

Individual registration is $10 payable at the door, and Agri-Insurance is sponsoring the evening meal.

For more information and to RSVP, call the AgriLife Extension office in Kinney County at 830-563-2442.
