The Agriculture and Natural Resource Committee of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will be hosting a Winter Forage Workshop from 6:30-8 pm on Tuesday, Sept. 23, at the Mansfield Park Recreation Center, 2886 Highway 16 N in Bandera.
"This is sure to be an informative program as it will be presented by Dr. Larry Redmon, a professor and state AgriLife Extension forage specialist from College Station," said Sam Womble, AgriLife Extension agent, Bandera County. "Dr. Redmon is one of the most knowledgeable and respected professionals on the topic of forages."
