NACOGDOCHES – A ranchers leasing workshop featuring Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service law and economics specialists is set for April 9 in Nacogdoches.

Tiffany Dowell Lashmet, AgriLife Extension agricultural law specialist, Amarillo, and Dr. Greg Kaase, AgriLife Extension economist, College Station, will present the program.

The event is 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Nacogdoches Exposition and Civic Center, 3805 NW Stallings Drive, and will focus specifically on grazing, hunting and livestock lease agreements, Lashmet said.

Cost is $50 per person or $80 per couple and includes lunch. Registration is required online at https://agriliferegister.tamu.edu/Ranchers.

The half-day seminar will include a question and answer session with attorneys and economists, Lashmet said.

All attendees will receive a copy of the Ranchers’ Agricultural Leasing Handbook, which contains checklists and sample lease language.

For more information, contact Lashmet at 806-677-5681, Tdowell@tamu.edu, or Kaase at 979-458-3348, g-kaase@tamu.edu.

Almost 900 residents have attended ranchers leasing workshops around the state in the past three years, and it continues to be a highly recommended program, Lashmet said.

“Landowners and producers in East Texas enter into a wide array of lease agreements, from hay production and grazing cattle to hunting,” Lashmet said. “It’s important for landowners leasing land and producers who lease land to understand the best way to avoid conflicts is to have a strong agreement in place from the start. We cover aspects of land leasing that many people may not be considering, and our collective knowledge on this subject makes this program invaluable to attendees.”
