COLLEGE STATION – “Grazable Acres” will be the title of a Dec. 6 natural resources webinar conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service ecosystem science and management unit.

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

Dr. Bob Lyons, ecosystem science and management associate department head and AgriLife Extension range specialist in Uvalde, will be the presenter.

“This webinar will deal with factors that affect how many acres cattle will actually use or the grazable acres a producer can count on,” Lyons said. “Data from cows fitted with GPS collars will be discussed to illustrate these various factors.”

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

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