The overwhelming majority of landowners in Denton County own between two to 10 acres and are not traditional farmers or ranchers. More than likely they moved from a city or suburbs and sought out some land of their own.
Texas AgriLife Extension in Denton County will offer a small landowner series beginning Thursday, Jan. 23, beginning at 6 p.m., located at the Joseph A. Carroll Building, 401 W. Hickory, Ste. 115, Denton.
The initial meeting of the small landowner series will cover livestock options, attaining or keeping an open land evaluation, attaining and using a private applicators license to apply pesticides and how to determine how much forage you have and how to improve it.
Presentations will be given by Clay Wright of the Noble Foundation, Kyle Wilhite with the Denton Central Appraisal District, Henry Krusekopf with the Texas Department of Agriculture and Steven Ray with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service.
The educational program will begin at 6 p.m. and seating is limited. The registration fee of $15 is payable at the door with cash or check. Checks may be made payable to AG DEMO FUND. Please RSVP by calling Pamela Hill at 940-349-2894 by Jan. 22.
