Texas

The latest in pasture management, weed control and an in-depth look at Akaushi cattle will be featured at the first annual Upper Gulf Coast Ranch Expo May 10 in Simonton.

The event, to be held at the Twinwood Cattle Co., 4430 Guyler Road, will feature bus tours with several Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service specialists from College Station discussing beef cattle production, forage management, weed control and pecan production.

"We are anticipating a large turnout for this regional event and there will be great interest in the topics that will be discussed throughout the day," said Greg Kaase, AgriLife Extension program specialist-risk management. "With beef cattle producers looking to capitalize on continued strength in cattle prices, there will be a variety of management practices they can take home and apply in their own operations. Also, three continuing education units will be offered to all interested pesticide applicators."

Registration and sponsored booth exhibits open at 7 a.m. At 8:20 a.m., Doug Steele, AgriLife Extension director from College Station, will provide opening comments. At 8:45 a.m., Stephen Deiss, U.S. Department of Agriculture-Natural Resource Conservation Service, will discuss conservation and financial assistance opportunities.

Following a break at 9:15 a.m., participants will board buses for tour stops featuring Jason Cleere, AgriLife Extension beef cattle specialist, discussing beef cattle production; Dr. Larry Redmon, AgriLife Extension state forage specialist, forage production; Paul Baumann, AgriLife Extension weed specialist, weed control in pastures; and Monte Nesbitt, AgriLife Extension horticulturalist, will give a presentation on pecan production.

During lunch, Miles Phillips, AgriLife Extension specialist, will present a program on ranch diversification through tourism. He will be followed by David Anderson, AgriLife Extension livestock economist, who will provide a livestock marketing update; Francisco Abello, AgriLife Extension program specialist from College Station, will provide an update on the Market Maker program. Aaron Sumerall, AgriLife Extension agent in Newton County, will discuss feral hog control methods and demonstrate different trapping methods.

Cost is $10 by May 6 or $20 for on-site registration. For more information, call 281-342-3034.
