Tuesday’s Farm Bureau cattle, forage conference includes credits

A cattle workshop on Tuesday, presented by the Farm Bureau of Palo Pinto County and Texas A&M-Palo PInto County Agrilife Extension, features continuing education units.

The April 23 workshop includes specialists presenting  courses on forage management, the economic outlook, legislative updates, pest management and managing beef.
