COLLEGE STATION – “How Much Forage Do I Have?” will be the topic of the April 6 natural resources webinar conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service ecosystem science and management unit.

The webinar is a part of the Texas Range Webinar Series scheduled the first Thursday of each month from noon to 1 p.m., said Pete Flores, AgriLife Extension webinar coordinator in Corpus Christi.

Dr. Emi Kimura, AgriLife Extension agronomist in Vernon, will be the presenter. She said the webinar will help producers determine how much forage they have available for livestock and different methods of monitoring forage resource throughout the year.

“Understanding the forage availability in your field is critically important for stocking rate decisions and helps avoid over- or under-stocking of livestock,” Kimura said. “I will discuss when, where and how to effectively quantify your forage supply for sustainable utilization of forage resources.”

No Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units will be offered during this webinar, so there is no fee, Flores said.

This webinar and others in the series can be accessed at http://naturalresourcewebinars.tamu.edu. For more information on the webinars, contact Flores at Pete.Flores@ag.tamu.edu.
