Feb 08, 2018 Co-Parenting Through Divorce (Beaver Co Extension Office Room, from Feb 08, 2018 09:00 AM to Apr 12, 2018 12:00 PM)
Must Pre-Register. A Co-Parenting Class will be held on 2nd Thursday from 9:00am-12:00noon February - April. How parents handle the divorce can make it better or worse for their children. Co-Parenting for Resilience is a program to help divorcing parents instill resilience in their children. Because divorce can cause numerous problems for children, many Oklahoma judges are requiring divorcing parents to attend a co-parenting workshop before their divorce will be granted. Upon completion of the program, participants will receive a certificate to present to their judge. Co-Parenting for Resilience is a 4 hour class designed to help parents: Learn how to keep their children out of the middle of their divorce; Recognize problems that their children may experience; Discover ways to change their own behaviors to help children adjust and overcome the challenges of divorce. Registration is $35.00. Contact the Beaver County Extension for details or to pre-register at least 3 business days prior to the class.

Mar 01, 2018 Annie's Project For Women In Ag (Beaver County Extension Office, Beaver, OK, from Mar 01, 2018 06:00 PM to Apr 30, 2018 08:00 PM)
Farm and ranch women are generating a cultural tide in American agriculture that is moving management, assets and opportunities to a new wave of farmers across the country. At Annie’s Project courses, farm women become empowered to be better business partners or sole operators through networks and by managing and organizing critical information. Annie’s Project is a six-week course that is a discussion-based workshop bringing women together to learn from experts in production, financial management, human resources, marketing and the legal field. There's plenty of time for questions, sharing, reacting and connecting with presenters and fellow participants. It's a relaxed, fun and dynamic way to learn, grow and meet other farm and ranch women. Whether new or experienced, understanding the five areas of agricultural risk, knowing how to analyze agricultural spreadsheets and other necessary skills are vital.  Learning them in a friendly environment where questions and discussion are welcomed, allow the learning process to flourish. Annie’s Project courses have successfully reached more than 9,000 farm and ranch women in 33 states.   Linda, an Annie’s Project alumna says, “I took the class to gain a better understanding about agribusiness and how financial decisions impact our farm operation.  I have a better understanding of balance sheets and the futures market…this class has improved communication with my spouse on concerns he works with on a daily basis.” Beaver County is planning to sponsor an Annie’s course in March through April. If you and someone you know would be interested in participating, please contact the Beaver County Extension office at 580 625-3464 ASAP. There will be a nominal fee which includes a workbook and support materials for all sessions. More information can be found on the Annie’s Project website at www.AnniesProject.org.

Mar 06, 2018 Oklahoma Youth Expo (from Mar 06, 2018 09:00 AM to Mar 16, 2018 07:30 PM)
 
Mar 06, 2018 Auxin Training (Lipscomb Co Extension Office, Lipscomb, TX, from Mar 06, 2018 07:00 PM to Mar 06, 2018 08:00 PM)
Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Lipscomb County Office is conducting a training on March 6th at 7:00pm. OSU Extension is also conducting several trainings throughout the state: February 9th at Cordell, February 13th at Enid, February 15th at Blackwell, March 6th at Carnegie, March 7th at Shawnee, and additional dates to come along with video conferencing. Both cotton and soybean producers looking to utilize the new dicamba technologies this year will need to attend one of the upcoming dicamba-specific applicator trainings if they intend to handle and/or apply the pesticides themselves. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry (ODAFF), OSU Extension, and the chemical companies (Monsanto, DuPont, and BASF) have worked together to provide updated application requirements and training materials. Currently there are three dicamba products labeled for “over the top” use on the Xtend Crop Systems. These products are Xtendi-Max® with VaporGrip® Technology (Monsanto), DuPont® FeXapan® Plus VaporGrip® Technology, and Engenia® (BASF). While these products are much less likely to move off-target compared to other formulations of dicamba herbicides, there still were a few herbicide damage cases in Oklahoma last year. Some surrounding states had reports of several hundred cases of herbicide damage to nearby crops. Non-dicamba tolerant soybeans are very sensitive to the herbicide dicamba. This herbicide can move off-target in three ways: physical spray drift carried by the wind, vapor drift when environmental conditions lead to dicamba volatilization then carried by the wind, and sprayer contamination. The well-detailed herbicide labels for these products have specific directions on how to prevent movement of these pesticides off-target. In Oklahoma last year, the main issue seemed to be improper sprayer cleanout. Recent changes have occurred with all three of the dicamba products with a major change of making all three products a Restricted Use Pesticide. Now only certified applicators (Commercial or Private) that attend one of the dicamba-specific trainings can purchase and apply these products. Even persons under direct supervision of a certified applicator will need to attend one of these trainings if they are handling these products. Pesticide Applicators not planning to utilize Xtendimax, FeXapan or Engenia herbicides, but need an hour of Laws & Regulations may attend the Lipscomb County training. 1 CEU for Laws & Regulations will be awarded to those who attend this training. Please contact Lipscomb County Extension office at 806-862-4601, by February 26th if you plan to attend the Lipscomb County Training.
