LACOSTE — A multi-county beef cattle symposium will be held April 22 at Ahr Farms, 5547 Macdona Lacoste Road, LaCoste, according to Roy Flora, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service agent in Bexar County, who is a co-sponsor with agents in Medina and Uvalde counties.
The event will begin with registration at 2:30 p.m. and conclude at 7:30 p.m.
“With the spring season being at hand, this is one of the busiest times for cow-calf producers and for hay production,” Flora said. “The Multi-County Beef Symposium will address some of the items on our ‘to-do’ list for beef producers and hopefully assist in maximizing time management of tasks to get the most return on investments and labor.”
“Pasture Management:Stocking Rates and Range Health” will open the sessions at 3 p.m. in a presentation by Dr. Robert ‘Bob’ Lyons, AgriLife Extension range specialist at Uvalde.
At 4 p.m., Dean Williams with Douglass King Seeds will talk about spring pasture seeding. Forage management and taking a soil sample will be the topics for Flora at 5 p.m. Dinner will be served at 6 p.m.
Attendees should RSVP by calling Angel Torres at the AgriLife Extension Bexar County office at 210-467-6575. The $15 registration fee includes dinner and is payable at the door.
Three continuing education units in the general category will be offered.
