Producers are invited to attend a USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative summer series workshop in Clarendon on Sept. 3, 2008 at Clarendon College in Clarendon, Texas.

The GLCI program is sponsoring the workshop that will include presentations and outdoor demonstrations presented by NRCS, Donley County Soil and Water Conservation District and Texas AgriLife Extension. The workshop will be held at the Bairfield Activity Center on the campus of Clarendon College.

A $25 registration fee will include lunch and a newly published handbook titled, Managing My Piece of Texas. The how-to guide was developed to assist landowners in managing grazing lands across Texas. Landowners will learn to estimate forage production, graze-able acres, and setting proper stocker rates, among other management principles.

To register for the workshop, call the Donley County SWCD office in the USDA Service Center at 806-874-3561, Extension 3, by August 29. For more on managing grazing lands, visit the GLCI Web site at www.GLCI.org or the Texas NRCS Web site at www.tx.nrcs.usda.gov.
