RRAA General Meeting of May 14, 2013:
The meeting was called to order by President Thomas Kemp, who asked Earl Bengston to give the convocation. The April 6 bull sale at Wichita Falls Livestock was briefly discussed. You should start preparing your bulls for next year’s sale, paying special attention to vaccinations. The next meeting will be the second Tuesday of September, Sept 10 at 7 pm [6:30 if you’re having supper].
Brian Cain, Regional Account Manager for DuPont and who lives in Muenster, gave a very interesting, informative, and timely talk about pasture herbicides such as Pastora for selective postemergence control of annual and perennial broadleaf and grass weeds in established bermudagrass pastures, particularly sandburs and johnsongrass. He discussed how to identify sandburs and when to apply Pastora to sandburs and johnsongrass for best control. He also talked about Cimarron Max with its residual action to control both ragweed and dove weed in the same spraying, and about Tordon or Surmount for prickly pear cactus.
Earl presented the financial report, which was approved.
Neal Hunt will announce the next ultrasound work day on the RRAA website.
