AgriLife Extension’s Coleman County Prescribed Burn Workshop slated for Dec. 18
COLEMAN – Anticipating an active prescribed fire season, the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Coleman County will conduct the Coleman County Prescribed Burn Workshop on Dec. 18 at the Bill Franklin Center/Goree Expo Center in Coleman. The facility is located at the intersection of Highway 206 and 5th Avenue.
Michael Palmer, AgriLife Extension agent in Coleman County, said registration will start at 8:30 a.m. with the program running from 9 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
“We’ve had some timely rains throughout the region and have grown some grass that will make prime fuel in many spots for what could prove to be a very successful winter prescribed burning season,” Palmer said. “With proper planning and execution, prescribed fire is undoubtedly the most cost effective-brush control management tool available.
“Our goal with this workshop is to update our producers on proper burning procedures while allowing them to become acquainted with some of the agency resources available to them should they decide to use this range-management tool.”
Individual registration is $15, payable upon arrival for those who RSVP by Dec. 15. The fee includes a noon meal. Late registration after Dec. 15 will be $20 with no meal guarantee. For more information or to RSVP, call the AgriLife Extension office at 325-625-4519.
Three Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units will be offered. Topics and speakers include: Fire Ecology and Burn Plan - Need to Know, Dr. Morgan Russell, AgriLife Extension range specialist, San Angelo; Wildfire Mitigation and Defensible Space, Phillip Truitt, Texas Forest Service, Merkel; and U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service Updates, Casey Spinks and Javier Garza, Coleman County NRCS.
“We’ll cap the day by conducting a demonstration burn to showcase the various burn types discussed during the workshop,” Palmer said.
Holiday Heroes needed for blood drives in Brady on December 9
Dual blood drives will take place in Brady on Tuesday, December. Meek Blood Center will have bloodmobiles parked at Heart of Texas Health System and Tractor Supply from 12:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
“We depend on volunteer blood donors to supply 100% of the blood that is used for patient care at seventeen area hospitals, including Heart of Texas Health System. We appreciate all of the holiday heroes who are willing to roll up their sleeves to give someone the gift of life,” said Frances Baker, donor recruiter.
Changes have been made to streamline the screening process and some previous restrictions regarding medical conditions and medications have been lifted. Those who have eligibility questions can speak with the Meek Blood Center supervisor at 325-670-2880.
Each donor will receive a T-shirt and a complimentary total cholesterol test.
Farm Bill Program set for December 17 in Coleman County
COLEMAN – “The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the Coleman County Farm Service Agency has set a farm bill program for December 17th in Coleman, Texas meant to help producers in their decision-making process,” said Michael Palmer, AgriLife Extension agent for Coleman County.
“This farm bill sign-up has lots of ‘moving parts’ that require producers to process quite a bit of data in order to make rational decisions,” said Bill Thompson, AgriLife Extension economist.
“Our commodity groups and industry associations have done an excellent job of explaining the programs and the options in front of us, but now it’s time to learn to work through the intricacies.” The program is set from 8:30 a.m.-noon at the First United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, located at 500 W Liveoak St. In Coleman, Texas. Participants are asked to RSVP to the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension office, 325-625-4519, no later than December 15th. Thompson said the meeting will recap both the programs available to producers, including Price Loss Coverage, or PLC, and Agricultural Risk Coverage, or ARC. It also will cover any base and yield update options available that can illustrate the data needed to complete the decision-making process.
“Though the new farm bill addressing cotton won’t be in place until 2015, almost all farms will still need to enroll acreage into one of these two coverage areas,” Thompson said.
“We will also have a short discussion of the disaster and conservation programs available.” Thompson said he’ll introduce an online decision aid available to producers developed by the Agricultural and Food Policy Center of the agricultural economics department at Texas A&M University, College Station. The decision aid simplifies the analysis needed to choose between the PLC and ARC coverages.
“A significant emphasis was placed on crop insurance by Congress, so this decision aid will help producers identify optimal and viable insurance coverage levels to provide as much of a crop loss safety net as possible.”
