Convention discussions to include water conservation, corporate farming laws

Advertisement

Trichomoniasis regulations, water conservation in western Kansas and potential change to the state’s corporate farming laws are among issues that will be discussed during committee and council meetings Dec. 4 to 6 at the Kansas Livestock Association convention in Wichita. KLA members are encouraged to attend and provide input on these issues as association policy is determined for the coming year.

One of the KLA resolutions to be considered deals with bovine viral diarrhea. Cattle persistently infected with BVD are known to be a major pathway for spreading the costly virus. Policy discussions will revolve around the possible identification of cattle that test positive.

Water conservation has been a major topic of discussion at the KLA Leadership Roundtables. This will carry over to the convention, where members could make changes to existing KLA policy that will serve as input for the governor’s 50-year water plan.

KLA members also will consider policy on the state’s corporate farming laws. Bills considered, but not approved, by the 2013 Kansas Legislature would have repealed or amended rules on corporate farming. Similar legislation is expected to be proposed during the 2014 legislative session.

Convention registration forms are available at http://www.kla.org. Complete the form and send to the KLA office before the Nov. 20 preregistration deadline.

KLA convention headquarters at the Wichita Hyatt are full. Rooms are available in the KLA block at the Fairfield by Marriott, which can be reached at 800-321-2211.
