The Amarillo Farm and Ranch Management Symposium will be held Dec. 3 in conjunction with the Amarillo Farm and Ranch Show at the Amarillo Civic Center.

This year, the symposium offering continuing education units has been moved from the traditional last day of the farm show to Wednesday, said Dr. Galen Chandler, Texas AgriLife Extension Service regional program director for agriculture and natural resources.

The management symposium will follow the annual Texas Commodity Symposium, which begins at 9 a.m. in the Grand Plaza. The management symposium registration will begin at 1:30 p.m., Chandler said.

Registration for continuing education units will also be allowed during the morning commodity symposium, but the three credits will only be given to those attending the afternoon portion, he said.

Topics of discussion:

– Wheat Fertility Management and Weed Control, Dr. Todd Baughman, AgriLife Extension agronomist, Vernon.

– Feral Hog Management, Ken Cearley, AgriLife Extension wildlife specialist, Canyon.

– Composting Large Livestock, Dr. Brent Auvermann, AgriLife Extension agricultural engineering specialist, Amarillo.

– Pesticide Laws and Regulations, Lavon Harmon, Texas Department of Agriculture.

The meeting will adjourn at 5:15 p.m. with the handing out of continuing education units.
