Drought is an ever-present specter for Texas livestock and forage producers. This webinar will preview future workshops that will present resources on creating plans for managing livestock through drought. Justin Benavidez, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension economist, Amarillo, is the featured speaker.
“We are so excited for Dr. Justin Benavidez to speak during our March webinar,” said series co-coordinator Morgan Treadwell, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension range specialist, San Angelo. “He brings a wealth of knowledge for our producers to rely on when preparing for drought.”
Believe it or not, this year is scheduled to be fairly strong for La Nina conditions in Texas, Treadwell said
“Justin will have the most up-to-date information for landowners to create plans for managing livestock, particularly cattle, through drought,” she said. “This webinar will provide Texans the opportunity to develop the skills and individualized plans to address the challenges experienced before, during and following drought.”
