AG AND OUTDOORS BRIEFS
Milam County Sheriff David Greene is asking residents in the county to keep a close eye on pets and livestock. Greene learned this week from the Texas Health Department that a horse in the Davilla area was diagnosed with rabies.
So far authorities say there was only one person known to have been in contact with the animal.
Greene said that although the Sheriff`s office will document all reports of possible rabies cases, owners are responsible for having their pets and livestock vaccinated.
Milam County Crop Tour set June 9
The Milam County Crop Tour has been scheduled for 9 a.m. Thursday June 9 at the Thorndale Volunteer Fireman’s Hall, Milam County AgriLife Extension agent Jon Gersbach announced.
