Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in the Lower Coastal Bend is proud to offer the first “Laws You Need to Know” Workshops in our area. This program will be a must for area agricultural landowners and producers, that features instruction provided by Tiffany Dowell Lashmet, Agricultural Law Specialist.

Tiffany Lashmet is licensed to practice law in Texas and New Mexico. She grew up on her family’s farm and ranch and focuses on legal issues that impact Texas landowners and agricultural producers. In 2014, Tiffany’s “Texas Agriculture Law Blog” was recognized among the Top 100 legal blogs in the nation by the editors at the American Bar Association Journal. The blog can be found at

Those who wish to participate in one of these workshops will have two opportunities to do so, as an abbreviated session will be held on May 16 focusing on agricultural land leasing, easements, and estate or suspension planning from 6 – 9 p.m. On May 17, from 8 a.m – 2 p.m these topics will be addressed again, along with a session on “agricultural production” and “landowner liability and statutory protection” issues.

“We believe that this will be an opportunity area landowners do not want to miss; so we wanted to offer and evening session for those who may not be able to participate in the day long session”, according to Bobby McCool, County Extension Agent in San Patricio County.

The day long session on May 17 will cover some “hot topics” in the agriculture industry right now such as transportation law and the use of log-in devices, as well as, some of our more common agricultural law concerns like water rights, farm animal liability, fencing law, chemical drift, and hunter/recreational land users liability.

The May 16 program will be held at the Johnny Calderon Building, 710 E. Main St., Robstown; while the May 17 program will be at the Texas A&M Research and Extension Center, 10345 Highway 44, Corpus Christi.

A registration fee will be charged for each session which will be $15 for May 16 and $25 including lunch for May 17. Participants are asked to RSVP prior to May 11 in order to attend the program by calling 361.767.5223.
