COLLEGE STATION – "Grazing with a purpose – Managing for what you WANT!" is the title of the Dec. 7 natural resources webinar conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service ecosystem science and management unit.

The webinar is a part of the Texas Range Webinar Series scheduled for the first Thursday of each month from noon to 1 p.m., said Pete Flores, AgriLife Extension webinar coordinator in Corpus Christi.

Dr. Tim Steffens, AgriLife Extension range specialist and West Texas A&M University department of agricultural sciences assistant professor, Canyon, will be the presenter.

“We will discuss some reasons to manage when, where, how many, how often and how long animals use different parts of the landscape,” Steffens said. “I’ll also provide some examples of how grazing can be adaptively applied in different situations to achieve desired outcomes that may complement other vegetation management actions like herbicides and fire.”

There is no charge for the webinar, and no Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education credits will be offered this time, Flores said.
