BROWNWOOD – The annual Brown County Ag Day program conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is set March 15 at the Brown County Fairgrounds, 4206 U.S. Highway 377 S. in Brownwood.
Registration will begin at 5:30 p.m. The program will begin at 6 p.m. with a meal provided by the Brown County Farm Bureau, said Scott Anderson, AgriLife Extension agent in Brown County.
“The vast majority of the rural land in our Central Texas area is privately owned and utilized for livestock production,” Anderson said. “There’s always discussion concerning whether Brown County is considered open range and exactly what the laws and rancher responsibility are when livestock stray.
“To address this issue and others, a featured speaker at this year’s ag day is Tiffany Dowell Lashmet, AgriLife Extension ag law specialist at Amarillo. She will present a session on livestock liability as well as cover landowner concerns when considering solar power generation on agricultural land.”
The program is open to the public. A $10 fee per person will be due upon arrival. Preregistration is requested by March 12 for meal planning. To preregister or for more information, contact the AgriLife Extension office in Brown County at 325-646-0386.
