Texas Cooperative Extension will offer three seminars at this year's Southwest Farm & Ranch Classic farm show, set for Jan. 23-25 at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.
The first seminar, "Cotton Production - What You Need to Know for 2007," will run from 9 a.m. to 12:25 p.m. Jan. 23 and examine farm policy, market conditions, variety selection, pest management, alternative fuels and irrigation.
The second, "Profitability Revisted," is slated for 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., also on Jan. 23. It will provide an update on fuel and crop prices, farm program payments, and budgets for irrigated and dryland crop production.
The third, "Livestock and Forages" is slated for 9:30 a.m. to noon, Jan. 24, and will focus on cattle markets, beef management tips, and small grain production for grazing and grain.
All three seminars will be in Room 107 of the Civic Center.
Participants can qualify to earn two continuing units at the cotton seminar and one CEU at the livestock and forages seminar. The farm profitability seminar offers no CEUs.
