Texas A&M AgriLife Extension has scheduled three workshops focused on the grazing, hunting and livestock leases for this fall. These half-day seminars provide information beneficial to both landowners and lessees, and are offered free of charge.

Tiffany Lashmet, AgriLife Extension Specialist - Agriculture Law, grew up in a ranching family before attending law school and understands both sides of the leasing equation.  In her straightforward and often humorous way, she presents leasing laws without the dry, confusing language typically associated with lawyers.

Participants leave with a better understanding of what questions to ask and how to ask them, as well as a copy of the Ranchers' Agricultural Leasing Handbook. This book covers leasing laws and contains checklists and sample lease language.

Workshops are being offered September 7, 12:00 - 4:00 at the Brazos Center in College Station; September 18, 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. at the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Office; and November 8, 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at McLennan County Community College in Waco.

Though the workshops are free, registration is preferred to ensure enough materials are available. AgriLife Extension is an equal opportunity program provider. If special accommodations are needed, Tiffany should be notified at least five days prior to the event so arrangements can be made.
