27th Annual Grain Grading Workshops set for May 3-4 in Amarillo

The 27th consecutive year of grain grading workshops hosted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will be held May 3-4, according to Dr. Steve Amosson, AgriLife Extension economist in Amarillo. The program is designed for corn, sorghum and wheat grain handlers and producers, Amosson said. Information from the workshops will help participants recognize the different types of damage that occur in these grains and how the damages affect grade and feeding value.

The back-to-back, day-long training will begin with registration at 8:30 a.m. each day. The program starts at 9:00 a.m. and continues to 4:30 p.m.. The workshops will be held at the AgriLife Research and Extension Center located at 6500 W. Amarillo Blvd. The registration fee is $75 and each workshop is limited to the first 60 participants. The last day to register is May 2. To register, visit http://agriliferegister.tamu.edu and select the link for Upcoming Events.
