BROWNWOOD — The annual Brown County Ag Day program, presented by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, is scheduled for April 9 at the Brown County Fairgrounds, 4206 US Highway 377 South, Brownwood.
Registration begins at 5:30 p.m., and the program starts at 6 p.m. with a meal courtesy of the Brown County Farm Bureau. The Brown County Ag Day is open to all. The fee is $10 at the door.
Preregistration is requested by April 5 at https://brown.agrilife.org/brown-county-ag-day/ or by contacting the AgriLife Extension office in Brown County at 325-646-0386.
Dr. John Tomecek, AgriLife Extension statewide wildlife specialist, San Angelo, will present his program, “Ramping Up Springtime Predator Control Efforts.”
“The vast majority of the rural land in our area is privately owned and utilized for livestock and wildlife production,” said Scott Anderson, AgriLife Extension agent, Brown County.
“It is no secret that predator numbers are increasing, especially during the springtime with new calves, lambs, goats and fawns being born,” Anderson said. “Dr. Tomecek’s program will cover important predation information that folks should be aware of.”
