    Virtual Aggie Beef 706

    August 11 – 13
    Free to Register

    Participants learn about the importance of producing a more consistent, high quality beef product through a series of hands-on lessons, presented by various meat science faculty, staff and graduate students.  Simulated live cattle selections (through video) and grading.  A hands-on cutting session will allow participants a chance to experience first-hand the differences encountered in carcass composition. The resulting information is evaluated in terms of the value differences, calculated between animals, and how that translates back to value differences in the live animals that are not typically relayed to the producer under a traditional beef marketing scenario.

    Transitional planning is a daunting task to navigate as families begin to plan for the next generation with a focus on preservation of family land and assets, establishing trusts, writing wills, and navigating probate.  Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, in Washington and Brazos counties, is proud to offer an opportunity for those with an interest in preparing for the future.  Join us on Tuesday, August 18, 2020, for Preserving Family Heritage – Estate and Legal Planning Seminars being offered online. 

    Presentations throughout the seminar will focus on: Overview of Estate and Transition Planning, Business Entities, Trusts, and More, and Understanding Probate and Alternative to Probate.  An impressive duo of multi-generational agriculturalists and attorneys focusing on agricultural issues will provide presentations and be available to visit with attendees throughout the seminar.  Tiffany Dowell Lashmet currently serves as the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Agricultural Law Specialist based in Amarillo and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with attendees.  Stephanie Bradley Fryer, Attorney at Law in Stamford, Texas represents farmers, ranchers, and other rural Americans with estate planning and administration, oil and gas matters, real estate transactions, and other agricultural issues.  You are sure to be impressed by this powerful duo as they share their experience and knowledge on issues related to estate and legal planning.      

    Preregistration for the seminar is now open and accepted online at https://washington.agrilife.org/estate. Interested attendees may also visit the Washington or Brazos County Extension Offices to register for the events.  Preregistration is $20/person on or before August 14, 2020, no late registrations will be accepted.
