Regional Ranch Management and Profitability Meeting will be Feb. 6 in Beloit

Set your calendars for an exciting educational opportunity regarding management and profitability strategies for cattlemen and women. K-State Research and Extension is bringing state beef specialists in to discuss several pertinent topics. The Post Rock Extension District will host the event, along with its partners River Valley, Midway and Central Kansas Districts.

The program titled “Corrals, Calcium, Cost, and Cows: Management and Profit Strategies for 2018” will include a series by Justin Waggoner on updating facilities for more effective use, with emphasis on the bud box processing system as well as Bob Weaber presenting his always-valuable take on selecting replacement heifers to boost cow herd efficiency. Mineral supplementation, presented by Jaymelynn Farney, and cost and profit benchmarking by Sandy Johnson, are also on the agenda. This will be a producer-friendly event where attendees will have an opportunity to drive the conversation in what we hope is a thought provoking Q&A session to conclude the meeting.
