Workshop set to help small/new landowners

Small and new landowners from throughout the state are invited to attend the Livestock Options Workshop on June 14 in Southeast Austin.

The workshop will be 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Hornsby Bend Wastewater Facility, located on Farm-to-Market Road 973 North, Del Valle.

Speakers will address the topics of stocker cattle, fire ant treatment, and meat goat and sheep management. Sessions on fence building and agriculture tax exemption laws also will be presented.

“This workshop will benefit the small landowner and new landowner who want to know more about the type of livestock or wildlife that will best suit their enterprise, as well as learn about the agricultural tax exemptions to which they are entitled,” said Brad Pierce, Texas Cooperative Extension agent for agriculture in Travis County.

Three continuing education credits - one general and two integrated pest management - are available to attendees.
