Young feedyards leaders meet in Washington

Participants in the Kansas Livestock Association Feedyard Leadership Program visited Washington, D.C., as part of the third of four seminars scheduled as a part of the year-long curriculum.

The group of 10 KLA members will spend time in the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association offices preparing for a series of Capitol Hill appointments with key decision makers. During meetings with the Kansas congressional delegation and a number of USDA agency personnel, class members will relay industry policy positions and ask questions on issues important to the cattle industry.

The first class in this new program previously spent time learning about KLA, state government and beef marketing in Topeka, Kan., and Kansas City, Mo., as well as traveling to Denver to meet with NCBA and CattleFax staff and engaging in a strategic business planning workshop. Feedyard leaders will wrap up their educational experience at the KLA Convention, Dec. 4 to 6 in Wichita.

Zoetis is partnering with KLA to sponsor FLP. Coverage from the group’s trip to Washington, D.C., will appear in a future KLA newsletter.
