STERLING CITY – The Sterling County Range and Livestock Committee of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service will conduct their annual range field day beginning at 9 a.m. June 21 at the Sterling County Community Center in Sterling City.
“Most range field days out our way this year are all about recovering from last year’s drought and wildfire, and ours is no exception,” said Chad Coburn, AgriLife Extension agent in Sterling County. “But we’ll also be discussing evaluation results of a mesquite control result demonstration plot on the Horwood River Ranch where we’ve been testing various rates of a promising new chemical for mesquite management that is expected to be available in 2013.”
Dr. Alyson McDonald, AgriLife Extension range specialist at Fort Stockton, will join Coburn in presenting the field day information.
Three Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units will be available to pesticide license holders.
Individual registration for the program is $10 payable upon arrival. For more information contact Coburn at 325-378-3181, firstname.lastname@example.org .
