The Landowners Educational Series is for anyone wanting to learn more about managing their land. Topics include pasture utilization, pasture management and establishment, pond management, tree/forest management, nuisance animal control, and agriculture law. All programs will be at the Franklin County Airport off of Highway 37, just north of Mount Vernon.
The Friday (May 24) event will begin at noon and include lunch. A round-table discussion will be where landowners may ask other producers, feed and agriculture company’s questions and producers will learn about what the various agricultural companies have to offer them in the Camp-Delta-Franklin Counties area. The meal is sponsored by area Texas Farm Bureau, who will also be available to discuss membership opportunities. After the roundtable discussion, the regular program will commence. This month’s topic will be on forestry. Eric Taylor, Silviculturist from Texas A&M AgriLife Extension and the Pittsburg, TX Forestry department will present.
