To Key On Management
Ranchers of Coleman County will
have an opportunity to take advant-
age of the latest ranch management
information available if they attend
the 1984 edition of the International
Ranchers Roundup (IRR) this sum-
San Angelo’s Convention Center
will be the site of the five-day
educational activity, set for July 30
August 3, announces Kirby Van-
over, county Extension agent. The
program is one of the most compre-
hensive,ever planned for ranchers.
Theme for the conference pro-
gram wilL be-“Holistic Ranch Man-
agement-Putting It All Together”,
the agent adds.
Ranchers who attend can expect
to become quite familiar with the
word “holistic", which implies that
all aspects of the ranching operation
are to be considered in the planning
process, Vanover explains.
Registration information about
IRR and tour details are available at
the local County Extension Office or
by calling 625-4519. Ranchers may
also obtain more complete informa-
tion by writing directly to: IRR, P.
0. Box 1849, Uvalde, TX 78801.
The agent reports that some 80
speakers from almost a dozen states
of the U.S., as well as South Africa
and New Zealand, are expected to
address Roundup sessions.
Vanover explains that IRR pro-
gram coordinators are placing em-
phasis on meeting specific needs of
ranchers of North America’s semi-
arid rangeland, but noted that many
of the ranching principles addressed
during the conference are also
applicable to ranches in other areas.
Major aspects of the program
include a general session the open-
ing afternoon, which will feature
addresses on various aspects of the
“Holistic Ranching" theme, the
agent adds. Concurrent sessions
during the next three days will
highlight livestock production, wild-
life, range and the ranch family.
Two special workshops also are
planned which will deal with micro-
computers for ranch management
and feature ranchers who are pre-
sently using this type of high tech to
improve their ranching operations;
and shared decision-making, plan-
ned to address the many pressures
of business on family issues.
A ranch tour designed to include
all aspects of ranching on the
Edwards Plateau will conclude the
weeklong, extensive educational
’This year’s Ranchers Roundup is
one of the most complete and
practical programs ever coordinated
by the Texas Agricultural Exten-
sion Service. It addresses many of
the real problems facing ranchers.
Those who attend will have an
opportunity to take part in a variety
of different sessions featuring some
of the top agricultural leaders of the
world", the agent says.
Vanover adds that more than
2,000 ranchers, representing some
25 states and seven countries other
than the U.S., have taken part in the
Ranchers Roundup programs dur-
ing the past three years.
Each person who registers for
IRR will be provided a bound copy
of the conference program proceed-
ings, which will include most of the
talks presented. In the past, ranch-
ers have found the book to be an
outstanding reference handbook,
and have ordered extra copies for
friends and neighbors, Vanover

Sailing along with a 10-1 lead
after four innings, the first half
Major Division champion Dodger
team appeared to have the overall
league title in the bag last Friday
night at the Little League Park.
But, quoting Yogi Berra’s now
infamous professional baseball re-
mark, "it’s not over ’til it’s over!",
the Santa Anna Mets over turned
the apple cart and turned in a
sparkling late inning rally to win
15-11. In doing so, the Mets forced a
playoff tonight (8 p.m.) for the
overall title. Both teams were 3-1 in
the second half entering Friday
Dodger ace right-hander Jeffrey
Hammonds breezed through the
first four frames, yielding just one
run. But four innings was the limit
he could pitch on Friday so Santos
Mendoza relieved. Two innings
later, the Mets, behind the slugging
of Luis Padilla, rallied with 14 runs
to salt away the victory.
Padilla smashed a grand slam
over the left field fence in the fifth
frame to spark the comeback.
Padilla also belted an inside the-
park shot in the same inning.
Alex Frausto started for the Mets
and was relieved by Ferguson and
Padilla. The latter hurled three
strong innings to ice the Dodgers.
Joe Caldwell and Scott Hunter
relieved Hammonds and Mendoza.
Afrer tonight's crucial clash, the
League All-Star squad will be
announced. The team will be an
nounced in Thursday's Chronicle.
