Local Org. to Host Webinar; Conducting a Deer Survey

Rio Grande City, Tx - Good deer management doesn’t just happen. It requires a basic understanding of how deer live and how they fit into the range management programs on ranches devoted to livestock-wildlife production. The nutritional requirements of deer must be understood and applied to the types of vegetation on the range. For this reason, the number of deer present must be accurately estimated so that populations can be balanced with food supply and livestock which compete for the food supply.

Texas AgriLife Extension, and Cooperative Extension Program (PVAMU) will be having a webinar entitled “Conducting a Deer Survey” on August 18, 2011. The programs will begin at 11:30 a.m. and conclude at 1:00 p.m. The program will be held at the Economic Development Corporation (EDC) meeting room held at the Tijerina complex on 101 S. Washington Street next to the Rio Grande City Police Station. Parking will be at the old El Patio Restaurant on the south side. The programs will be broadcasted live through the internet. Omar Montemayor & Rolando Zamora will be on hand to answer and facilitate any questions that may arise. All you will need to do is make your reservations and the rest will be taken care of. The program fee will be $10 and include a sandwich (Subway) lunch.

Please contact the Starr County Extension Office at (956) 487-2306 to make your reservations.
