Have you recently purchased land in the country? Or are you planning on moving back to the family farm to escape the big city hustle? Then you will not want to miss the “Living in the Country” seminar slated for April 18, at the Somervell County Expo in Glen Rose.

Texas AgriLife Extension Offices in Somervell, Hood and Bosque counties are hosting a one day seminar titled “Living in the Country” to provide landowners with valuable educational sessions which will enable them to make sound land management choices.

The seminar is tailored to provide assistance to landowners who are first-time or new landowners, or those who grew up in a rural area, moved to the urban cities for employment, and now wanting to move back to the farm or ranch. Whether you have five acres or 500 acres, you will not want to miss this.

The program will start with registration at 8:30 a.m. Topics to be presented, include: Establishing Native and Improved Grasses, Brush and Weed Control without a License, Livestock Options for Small Acreage and Range Monitoring. All topics will be presented by a specialist in that area. There will also be question and answer sessions. The seminar will conclude at 3:15 p.m.

Registration is $10 per person, due April 11, which includes lunch and proceedings. Late registration will be $25 and does not guarantee lunch or a copy of the proceedings.
