Winter pastures training for Central and East Texas Aug. 23
Many producers contact her too late for advice in establishing winter pastures, said Dr. Vanessa Corriher-Olson, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service forage specialist, in Overton.
“And when it comes to winter pastures, there’s nothing worse than too late,” Corriher-Olson said.
To help producers do the best possible job of planning winter pastures, Corriher-Olson and Dr. Jason Banta, AgriLife Extension beef specialist, will be conducting the Winter Pastures for Central and East Texas short course from 9:30 a.m–5 p.m. Aug. 26 at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center at Overton.
Corriher-Olson said the program will answer many of the questions people commonly have about establishing winter pastures, such as: Which species are best suited to a particular type of operation? How much in feed costs can they expect to save? How do should they interpret seed tag information? How can they create a custom soil and production map for a farm from satellite data?
Registration for the program is $60 and includes lunch and program materials. Seating will be limited to the first 50 people to register. Register online at agriliferegister.tamu.edu.
