Northwest Iowa Dairy Outlooks

A local discussion of current science and issues concerning dairying in northwest iowa

“Pesticide applicators will need to mark their calendar for Friday, January 8 and attend this program to learn what is new in pesticides for 2016” says the new Tarrant County AgriLife Extension Agriculture Agent Fred M. Hall. The program will feature industry representatives as well as Extension professionals. Applicators and producers will earn three Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units by attending plus gain valuable information that can have a positive effect on their profits.

Sign-in begins at 9 a.m. and the programs start promptly at 9:30 a.m. and should conclude by 2 p.m. The program will be held at Russell Hall located at 5708 Jacksboro Hwy in Fort Worth. The $25 registration includes all program materials, CEUs, plus a bar-b-que lunch. Since a count is needed for the meal, pre-registration by January 6 to guarantee your meal is required. Register by calling the Extension office at 817.884.1946 or on-line at: http://agrilife.org/urbantarrantag/program-registration. The three CEUs include one general, one intergraded pest management and one laws and regulations.

Hall will start the day sharing ten tips for better crop spraying at 9 a.m. and be followed by Ethan Westfall covering the new products at Dow. John Nienhiser from Syngenta will outline their changes for 2016 and Matt Matocha from Texas A&M AgriLIfe Extension will discuss brush and invasive plant control before lunch.

There will be a BBQ lunch provided to everyone who was pre-registered.

After lunch Laura Miller will discuss what the propsed rule changes from EPA and TDA really mean for producers in Texas.
