Tue, 11/15/2011 - 6:30pm

The Parker County office of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service will offer a series called “Ag 101 for Small Acreage Land Owners” at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesdays beginning Nov. 15.

If you are a relatively new landowner and have questions on how to manage your land, this program is for you, according to Jon Green, County Extension Agent - Agriculture for Parker County. Past year’s participants with properties ranging from 5 acres to over 100 acres all increased their knowledge base of ag related topics, Green added.

The series begins on Tuesday, November 15 at 6:30 p.m. in the Extension office meeting room at 604 North Main in Weatherford. The remaining dates are November 22 and 29.

Topics to be covered over the three evenings include:
• Beef Cattle Management on small acreage
• Goat Management on small acreage
• Wildlife on Small Acreage
• Pond Management
• Plant Identification
• Soils & Soil Testing
• Pasture and Hay Field Management
• Oak Wilt & Tree Care
• Ag. and Wildlife Valuation of Property

Due to seating capacity, the program is limited to the first 25 landowners and spouses who pre-register by November 14, Green said. The fee for this series is $35 per household which includes the series handbook and refreshments.

Pre-registration is required. Call the Parker County Extension office at 817-598-6168 or stop by 604 North Main.

Educational programs conducted by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service serve people of all ages regardless of socioeconomic level, race, color, sex, religion, disability or nationality.
