Tonsor's topics will include, cow-calf and feeder risk management, contracting and marketing, LRP insurance, and the market outlook. Farney will present about drought and feed shortages, balancing available feed, nitrates and aflatoxin, water problems, and care of cattle with current conditions. The evening will end with questions that the audience has of the two presenters.
