Every year at this time we start talking about winter grasses – cover crops. The hard part for the last few years has been making the decision about planting when we are in a drought scenario. A few weeks ago Eldorado sponsored Vanessa Corriher-Olson, Ph.D – Associate Professor & Extension Forage Specialist from the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center in Overton, Texas. She came to our area to speak to us about when – how – what to plant. We need to know what seed works best for our environment and where the seed is coming from so we know that it will adapt to our area. I am including her slide presentation from that night, but you can also find more information on their new Forage Fax website http://foragefax.tamu.edu.
From working in the fashion industry in New York, to managing a cattle ranch in Texas, life has been an exciting journey. I look forward to sharing the interesting experiences I encounter in my daily life as a Texas Rancher Girl.
