Farmers and ranchers who would like to apply for or renew their private applicator license may earn seven continuing education units at the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service’s Pasture and Ranch Management Seminar in Franklin Oct. 29.

The seminar will be held from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Pridgeon Community Center and will include discussion on beef cattle external parasites and management issues, Texas Department of Public Safety laws that affect producers, how to interpret farm chemical labels, farm chemical drift management, the latest control products for armyworms, grasshoppers and flies, the latest chemistry for weed and brush control and economic benefits of weed control fertilizers and pasture insurance.

Registration is $50 and includes a catered lunch and handouts. To RSVP, call 979-828-4270.

A second program, also offering seven CEUs, will be held Dec. 13. Those who attend both seminars will receive 15 hours credit, which satisfies the Texas Department of Agriculture’s requirements for private applicators to renew their license.
