9 join KLA'S 50-year membership club


Nine Kansas Livestock Association members were recognized during the KLA Convention Dec. 4 for reaching 50 years of membership. This year’s honorees epitomize the diversity and commitment of the organization’s membership.

Those who joined KLA in 1963 are Les Baumgartner, Sabetha; Don Lundquist, Marquette; Kathryn McLain, Medicine Lodge; Bob Cather, Anthony; Oliver Hess, Alma; Robert (Bob) McClellan, Palco; Elizabeth (Liz) Oswald, Hutchinson; Floyd Larson, Sharon Springs; and Ronald Schultz, Haviland.

Attaining 60 years of membership this year are Joe Smith, Tribune; Dorothy Spade, Reading; 3 Bar Ranch, Coldwater; and Harvey Raaf, Gridley. Darrell Sutor of Zurich was honored for reaching the 70-year mark.

“The work KLA does on behalf of its members is made possible by dedicated members such as these who are in it for the long haul,” said KLA President Jeff Sternberger, a cattle feeder from Garden City.

These honorees bring to 92 the total number of KLA members who have belonged to the organization for 50 years or more. The longest continuously held KLA membership belongs to Jansonius Farms of Prairie View, which joined the association in 1918.

KLA is a trade organization protecting the business interests of independent ranchers, feeders and dairy farmers. Members of the association are involved in all segments of the livestock industry, including cow-calf production, backgrounding, cattle feeding, swine, dairy and sheep. The association’s work is funded by voluntary dues dollars paid by its 5,500 members.
