Winter cattle feeding program set for Dec. 13


By Robin Slattery

River Valley District Extension Agent

This year more than ever, it is important to economically feed your cattle during the winter period. The few months of winter are where much of the yearly feed costs are accumulated, while winter nutrition also has an effect on subsequent production.

On Dec. 13, Dale Blasi, Ph.D., K-State Research and Extension beef specialist; Robin Slattery, RVED livestock agent; and Austin Sexton, Pottawatomie County ag agent will be presenting topics on cattle nutrition in drought conditions. Utilizing alternative feedstuffs such as wheat straw, ammoniated wheat straw, corn/milo stalks, and CRP hay will be discussed. Working with high nitrate forages, methods of conserving hay, and opportunities to increase efficiency with the use of Rumensin will also be presented. The program will be held at the American Legion in Linn, Kan., with registration at 5:15 p.m. and the program beginning at 5:30 p.m. There is no cost for registration and a meal will be provided sponsored by United Farmer's Cooperative. Please RSVP to the RVED-Washington County Extension office by Dec. 10 by calling 785-325-2121 or contact Robin Slattery at rslat@ksu.edu.
