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

Dr. Bill Fox and Dr. Jay Angerer, Texas A&M AgriLife Research ecosystem science and management associate professors in Temple, will be the presenters. They will be discussing the pilot program “Forage Forecasting/Nutritional Analytics” conservation innovation project that will take place over the next three years.

“Landowners and managers must maintain a profit for their ranch, while still making decisions that benefit them in the future,” Fox said. “Imagine if you could quickly access a ‘Forage Forecast’ and be able to predict your forage supply 30, 60, 90 days out or accurately know your herd’s nutritional needs for that time frame, leaving you better able to make informed, timely decisions.”

No Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units will be offered during this webinar, Flores said, so there is no fee. This webinar and others in the series can be accessed at
