Alamo Area Landowner Stewardship program to be held May 30 in San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO – The second of a four-part series of Texas AgriLife Extension Service presentations to benefit area landowners will be held May 30 at the Land Heritage Institute, 1349 Neal Road in San Antonio.

Registration for the Alamo Area Landowner Stewardship program will be from 8:30-9 a.m. with presentations to follow. The program will conclude at 3 p.m.

“This program is part of a series of AgriLife Extension programs geared toward helping Texas landowners recover from last year’s record drought, especially as it applies to pasture recovery,” said Bryan Davis, AgriLife Extension agent for agriculture and natural resources in Bexar County and a program presenter.

Davis said program topics will include landowner perspectives and discussion regarding land management, grazing management, brush plant identification and management, grazing behavior and feral hog management.

“Dr. Bob Lyons, Barron Rector and I will all be presenting this session of the landowner stewardship series,” he said. “We will be addressing issues of importance to area landowners in an attempt to help them recover from the devastation of last year’s prolonged drought and its impact on their pastures, which, in turn, had an impact on their livestock.”

Lyons is an AgriLife Extension range specialist in Uvalde, and Rector is an AgriLife Extension range specialist in College Station.

Four continuing education units – two integrated pest management and two general – will be offered for the program.

Registration is $25 and space is limited to the first 45 respondents. Participants are requested to RSVP to Angel Torres at the AgriLife Extension office for Bexar County on or before May 25 at 210-467-6575 or matorres@ag.tamu.edu.

Checks should be made payable to Bexar Agricultural Committee and mailed to Texas AgriLife Extension Service, Attn: Angel Torres, 3355 Cherry Ridge Dr., Suite 212, San Antonio, Texas 78230 with a May 25 or earlier postmark.
