The applicator license looks like a big hassle to me but I've been able to avoid it so far by using non-restricted herbicides like Sendero for mesquite control, a tank mix of MSM 60 and Triclopyr for weeds.Go to your ag extension office and ask about the applicator license
It is a hassle, you have to get 15 CEU's to get it and then to keep it year after year you have to take X number of classes each year.The applicator license looks like a big hassle to me but I've been able to avoid it so far by using non-restricted herbicides like Sendero for mesquite control, a tank mix of MSM 60 and Triclopyr for weeds.
The other good thing about the 20'ers is they are easy to get delivered, most tilt trays can handle them.I'm not sure about the applicator permit, don't think I'll be ready to do that for a while but good to know it's a thing here in tejas. I think my main next step remains a container for storage, a mower and secure the perimeter fence. Then get some youngsters in, experiment with grazing and see how the rest of the year pans out. Next 6 months is a tractor, mower, rake and baler. More weaners and maybe a pay check.
Biggest problem I have right now is getting internet access in rural Hamilton County, Tx. And a container that doesn't cost 6 grand! May follow advice from @wbvs58 and go for a 20', they're less than half the price if my eyes are not deceiving me...
By roping arena, you mean Circle T? It's a pretty neat facility, we've raced out there a few times. Restaurant is pretty good but I'm not super picky... meat was tasty, veggies were good, beer was cold.Hamilton is a nice town we always enjoy stopping there on our way home from trips down south. Have you ate at the roping arena yet? I heard the food was great.
Internet let me buy the 2-4,D. Trading it out with person who has a license and sprayer.For those of you that are close to Oklahoma they sell 2-4,D herbicides without needing a license, just don't get caught using them in Texas without the license...key words are "don't get caught"!
