Range conference coming to Big Spring

June 14, 2013

The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will conduct the West Texas Livestock and Range Conference from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. June 27 at the Broughton Agriculture Complex on the Howard College campus in Big Spring.
The conference is a multi-county effort involving the AgriLife Extension offices in Glasscock, Upton, Reagan, Howard, Martin and Midland counties.
“We have a fine slate of speakers coming who will present ranch-related information covering a wide array of topics pertinent to ranching in Far West Texas,” said Rebel Royall, AgriLife Extension agent in Glasscock County. “The AgriLife Extension agents planned the program based on needs from our local planning committees who share a common thread across our area, so that’s what’s being presented.”
The morning session will deal with legislative water updates, the Earth Partners-Conservation Biomass, range management/wildfire prevention and Dow range herbicide products.
The afternoon program will include presentations on Heart Brand Meats, drought management, Beef Quality Assurance and beef cattle health-related topics including vaccination programs, a live animal demonstration on chute-side protocol and de-worming.
Three Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units will be offered — two general and one integrated pest management.
Individual preregistration is $15 if received at the AgriLife Extension office in Glasscock County by June 18 and $25 thereafter. The fee includes the noon meal.
For more information, contact Royall at 432-354-2381, r-royall@tamu.edu or the AgriLife Extension office in any of the participating counties.
