Fluctuating fuel and feed costs over the past couple of years have made the business of beef production particularly challenging. To help producers maximize their resources and operations, Kansas State University Research and Extension will host a Beef Conference Aug. 13. Titled "Making Money in Hard Times," the conference will be in Frick Auditorium at K-State's College of Veterinary Medicine.
"The conference is especially geared for cow-calf producers and designed to provide take-home knowledge that will enhance their ability to improve profitability," said Extension veterinarian Larry Hollis.
Troy Marshall, beef producer and a BEEF magazine contributing editor, will be the featured speaker. His presentations, "Issues Facing the Beef Industry" and "Opportunities Facing the Cow-Calf Producer," will open and close the conference.
For planning purposes, organizers are asking that the $60 conference registration fee be paid by July 31, but registration will also be available at the door. The fee includes morning and afternoon refreshments, a noon meal, and conference materials.
