K-State’s Annual Cattlemen’s Day is Friday

Beef and cattle producers can hear about the latest research, technology and economic challenges and opportunities facing the industry at Kansas State University’s annual Cattlemen’s Day.

K-State professor and beef cattle Extension specialist Dale Blasi says Cattlemen’s day is designed to address key issues and provide information that keeps the industry efficient and relevant.

One of the keynote speakers at Friday’s event, Dr. Brad Morgan, senior director of protein for Performance Food, will offer some insight on the impact plant-sourced or cultured meat could have on the beef market.

In addition to Morgan’s presentation, Blasi says K-State agricultural economist Glynn Tonsor will be covering a variety of topics important to beef and cattle producers.

The 106th Annual Cattlemen’s Day begins Friday morning at 8 with refreshments, exhibits and a commercial trade show in Weber Hall on the Manhattan campus. Early registration is closed, but producers can still attend by paying $30 at the door. There is no charge for students. For more information, visit: ksubeef.org.
