Livestock Field Day to be held in North Central Kansas
Make plans to attend the 2nd annual Stock Growers Field Day on Tuesday, March 31, 2020. The event will be highlighted by beef reproduction economics and a market outlook along with an AI demonstration from industry and K-State Research and Extension experts in their field! The field day, held in Beloit, KS, is a collaboration with K-State Research and Extension and the Kansas Bull Test.
K-State Research and Extension Agents believe this will give producers a better chance to not only hear from industry leaders, but to also take part in conversation with one another. The field day is an effort to bring industry and K-State Research and Extension experts right to north central Kansas realizing that often times events of this caliber are held in larger places like Manhattan, Wichita, or Dodge City.
In addition to the speakers, the program will offer breakout sessions where attendees can pick and choose which topics apply to them. Topics include a producer panel on providing a consumer-driven value-added product, a session on livestock watering considerations for the upcoming grazing season and more. More than 30 agricultural businesses will be on hand in the trade show and bulls from Kansas Bull Test will be available for viewing throughout the afternoon.
Cost to attend the meeting is $10 which includes a NOON meal and a copy of the field day proceedings. This event has been generously sponsored by Merck Animal Health, Anipro/Xtraformance Feeds and the Guaranty State Bank along with other agricultural sponsors. Contact any offices of the Cottonwood, Post Rock, River Valley or Walnut Creek Extension Districts of K-State Research and Extension.
