Kansas

The K-State Research and Extension Shawnee County office is teaming up with Landmark National Bank to host a workshop, "Cattle Feeding and Marketing in Drought Conditions" on Jan. 15, 2013, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The workshop, to be held at the Auburn Civic Center, 1020 North Washington in Auburn, Kan., will begin with a light meal.

Presentations are designed to provide area cattle producers with the most recent information to help with the challenges posed by severe drought conditions in Kansas.

Speakers and presentation topics will include Glynn Tonsor, K-State extension agricultural economist discussing cow-calf and feeder risk management, contracting and marketing, LRP insurance and the cattle market outlook and Jaymelynn Farney, K-State southeast area livestock specialist who will focus on drought and feed shortages, balancing available feed, nitrates and aflatoxin, water problems, and care of cattle with current conditions.

The evening will end with a question-and-answer session.

The evening is free and open to the public, but organizers request pre-registration by Jan. 10 in order to ensure enough food and printed materials. For more information or to pre-register, contact Leroy Russell with Shawnee County Extension at 785-232-0062 or lrussell@ksu.edu or Debra Tucker with Landmark National Bank at 785-256-7202 or DTucker@banklandmark.com.
