Handbook outlines Texas landowner laws.

Lashmet publishes handbook about Texas landowner laws

Dr. Tiffany Dowell Lashmet publishes free handbook online, offers programs throughout Texas.

It was a year in the making, but we are thrilled to release our newest handbook Owning Your Piece of Texas: Top Laws Texas Landowners Should Know.  This publication was made possible by funding through the Southern Risk Management Education Center.  The handbook offers Texas landowners and ag producers an overview of key agricultural laws that may impact their operation including water law, fence law, landowner liability, eminent domain, special use tax valuation, and more.

To download a free copy of the handbook, click here.

"This handbook is designed to offer a basic overview of several of the legal issues facing Texas landowners," Lashmet writes in her handbook. "Agricultural law is broad and complex, and this handbook is no exception. By the time a person reads the entire book, it may feel like a law school diploma should be included."   

Also, we are hosting programs around the state on this same topic…for free!  Each event will be a full-day program covering these agricultural laws.  Attendees will receive a copy of the handbook and get lunch sponsored by Ag Workers Insurance.  We kicked things off last week in Lubbock, but you can find us down the road:

  • San Antonio (June 7)
  • Crockett (June 28)
  • Cat Spring (August 26)
  • College Station (September 12).
