Management strategies for producing uniform, high-quality forage to meet production goals will be the focal point of a Feb. 7 Texas Agrilife Extension multicounty forage seminar at the First Baptist Church in Cross Plains.

Seminar topics include evaluating hay quality, drought’s effects on insects for this year’s small grains and forage crops, financial assistance available for farmers and ranchers, the coming cost-price squeeze on replacement cattle and laws and regulations for pesticide applicators. The seminar is being conducted by AgriLife Extension offices in Brown, Callahan, Coleman and Eastland counties.

Individual preregistration is $15 if paid by Feb. 3; $20 thereafter. The fee includes a noon meal. For more information or to preregister, contact the AgriLife Extension office in Callahan County at 325-854-5835.
