The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is holding a free crop tour and the first Cotton Boll Golf Scramble on Sept. 24 in Big Spring.
“We wanted a fun and unique approach that would allow area cotton producers a chance to not only participate in the crop tour and hear from experts, but also to learn from fellow producers and have the opportunity to socialize as well,” said Tommy Yeater, AgriLife Extension agent for Howard County.
The event, lunch and golf scramble are free for crop tour participants. To register and for more information, contact Yeater at 432-264-2236, 432-466-3131 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event will start at 8 a.m. with registration at the G.C. Broughton Jr. Ag Complex on the Howard College campus at 2411 Echols Drive. The speaker will be Reagan Noland, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension agronomist, San Angelo.
After the crop tour and noon lunch, the golf scramble will start around 1 p.m. at Big Spring Country Club at 2401 Driver Road. It will be a staggered start and feature prizes for the shot closest to the tee, hole-in-ones and the longest drive.
