Ask your neighbor what they are doing Wednesday April 2, 2014 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. That is when K-State Research and Extension is hosting the "Going To Grass" seminar at K-State Salina.

Tailored to cattle producers in central Kansas, "Going To Grass" will feature proven production practices and cattle management topics delivered by Dr. Dale Blasi, Dr. Justin Waggoner, and Corbitt Wall.

2014 is shaping up to be a banner year for cattle producers. Cow-calf operations should see substantial profits in this economic climate. Livestock Marketing Information Center in Colorado projects more than $300 profit per weaned calf. Stocker operators are tasked with growing calves to heavier weights while lowering production cost to stay in the black ink. "Going To Grass" is designed to bring practical information to cow-calf, seedstock, and stocker cattle raisers, backed by sound research and years of experience in one of the most rewarding and chaotic businesses known to man.


Thanks to the generosity of Elanco, Hedville Grain and Seed, Multimin, and Merial there is no charge to attend this event. That's right, a free beef fajita meal for the first 90 participants to sign up and mail in their RSVP forms. For more information or to request an RSVP form via email, please feel free to call Anthony N. Ruiz at (785) 392-2147 or email at anruiz@ksu.edu.
