COLEMAN – The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will conduct the 2014 Range and Pasture Management Program from 5:30-9 p.m. June 24 at the Bill Franklin Center in Coleman.

“This program is meant to update our producers on the new range-related technologies and programs now available to them,” said Michael Palmer, AgriLife Extension agent in Coleman County. “This type of program generally generates plenty of questions, so the beauty of this one will be our speakers who should be able to answer most,if not all the questions producers might have in their particular area of expertise.”

Individual registration is $10 for those who RSVP by June 17 and $20 thereafter. Payment is due upon arrival. The fees will include supper. For more information and to RSVP, call the AgriLife Extension office in Coleman County at 325-625-4519.

– Pasture, Range and Forage Insurance, Bill Thompson, AgriLife Extension economist, San Angelo.

– DuPont Weed and Brush Herbicide Update, Gerald Hobson, Peaster.
