John Hughes of the West Texas Suboffice assisted in the development and implementation of a ranching and wildlife economics workshop held in Roberts County on July 17, 2008.  Participating agencies included Texas AgriLife Extension (TAE), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  The workshop included a review of range management principles and practices, a discussion of common range management tools, integration of wildlife and livestock management at the ranch level, economic considerations for both livestock production and nature tourism, and an introduction to decision-making software.  Mr. Hughes served on a panel with representatives from TAE and NRCS that fielded questions from interested landowners, and gave a presentation on the use of prescribed fire as a habitat management tool.  A total of 26 private landowners attended the event.
