First ever Stock Growers Field Day in Beloit
BELOIT – A first ever Stock Growers Field Day is scheduled at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, March 26 at the Mitchell County Fair Grounds in Beloit.
The event will be highlighted by a market outlook from CattleFax and by a presentation on increasing production efficiency from the well-known reproductive physiologist, Dr. Rick Funston. The field day will be a collaboration from Kansas State Research and Extension, the Kansas Livestock Association, and the Kansas Bull Test.
Barrett Simon, Livestock Agent for K-State Research and Extension, believes this will give producers a better chance to not only hear from industry leaders, but to also take part in conversation with one another. Simon says that the field day is an effort to bring industry experts right to North Central Kansas, noting that often times events of this caliber are held in places like Wichita, Manhattan, or Dodge City.
In addition to the speakers, the program will offer breakout sessions where attendees can pick and choose which topics apply to them. Topics discussed may include a producer panel on cover crop grazing, a session on livestock watering considerations for the upcoming summer grazing season, and more. More than thirty agricultural businesses will be on hand in the trade show and bulls from the Kansas Bull Test will be available for viewing throughout the afternoon.
Cost to attend the meeting is $15 which includes an evening meal and a copy of the field day proceedings.
