 We will be offering three (3) continuing education units for people who have a private,
commercial, or non-commercial pesticide applicators license.  These hours will be 1 in general, 1
in integrated pest management, and 1 in laws/regulations.  The Beef Quality Assurance Program
has made some changes recently.  One of those changes is eliminating the BQA credits.  
Producers are encouraged to attend educational events that talk about BQA best management
practices…just eliminating the sign-up sheets and record keeping portion.
 Make plans to attend this year’s field day.  Please RSVP to the Llano County Extension
