The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will present the Multi-County Range and Brush program on June 29 in Brownwood. The program will be held at the Adams Street Community Center, 511 East Baker.

Brush encroachment continues to be an expensive problem to deal with and, if left unchecked, it reduces grazeable acres for livestock and could make areas undesirable for wildlife. This program will help producers to learn how to control brush on their land.
