Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the Kaufman Livestock-Forage Committee are planning an agriculture tour to Arkansas and Louisiana Nov. 6-8.

The group will tour the PPF Gin in Cooper and the West Fraser Lumber Mill in New Boston.

Next the tour goes to the El Dorado Chemical Company in El Dorado, Ark., Draggin M Ranch in El Dorado, Louisiana Tech University, Hill Farm Research Station in Homer, La., and the Overton Research Station in Overton, Texas.

The cost for the bus transportation is $75 per person, and each person pays for their own meals and lodging.
