“This is sure to be an informative program as it will be presented by Dr. Larry Redmon, a professor and state AgriLife Extension forage specialist from College Station,” said Sam Womble, AgriLife Extension agent, Bandera County. “Dr. Redmon is one of the most knowledgeable and respected professionals on the topic of forages.”

 

Womble said there continues to be interest in winter forages, whether used for grazing livestock or supplementing wildlife.

“This program will address forage variety and site selection, planting and establishment, fertility, insect control and overall management,” he said.

The workshop will offer 1.5 hours of Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units — one hour general and 0.5 hour integrated pest management.

Registration is $15 per person, and includes a meal and program materials.
