A Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service online program will cover forage production in northeast Texas from 6-8 p.m. May 20. The program is hosted by the agency’s offices in Lamar and Cass counties.
The program will be presented on the Zoom meeting platform. Cost is $15. Register at https://bit.ly/3tFpp40.
Jessica Humphrey, AgriLife Extension agriculture and natural resources agent, Lamar County, said the online forage production program is designed to help producers maximize their crop yields through the growing season.
“Getting the best quality and quantity out of your forage-producing acres with the least number of inputs is the goal for most every operation, and this program focuses on how to maximize production with that in mind,” Humphrey said. “I think there is good information and value to be found in this program for both new and experienced producers.”
