Central Kansas Beef Summit coming
Alicia Boor

The Central Kansas Beef Summit Program will be Held in Beloit on Tuesday, Nov. 14th, from 9 a.m. –3:15 .p.m. The event will be highlighted by a presentation on marketing strategies for beef cattle by Lynn Langvardt of JCCC Livestock Sales and a Market Outlook and Update from K-State specialist, Dr. Glynn Tonsor.

In addition to the speakers, the program will offer breakout sessions where attendees can pick and choose which topics apply to them. This year’s topics will include a presentation and demonstration of the Ag Manager decision tools by Robin Reid with the KSU Agricultural Economics Department, Rob Paxson with 701x will present on the company’s record keeping system and products, and Will Boyer with KSU will discuss utilizing drones as a way to manage your pasture. We will end the program with a Q&A panel where we’ll hear from local livestock producers and industry professionals discuss technologies and strategies that are being implemented in the beef industry.

The summit will be held in Beloit at the Beloit Methodist Church at 801 N. Bell St. This program will be a collaboration among numerous K-State Research and Extension districts and will give producers a better chance to not only hear from industry leaders, but to also take part in conversation with one another. Make sure to RSVP by Nov. 7th to reserve a meal. The cost to attend is $10 or late registration will be $15 at the door.

For more information on the event, or to register, visit our Post Rock Extension website or call Livestock Production Agent, Blaire Todd, at 785-738-3597. This event has been generously sponsored by several agribusinesses in collaboration with K-State Research and Extension Districts, Central KS, Cottonwood, Midway, River Valley, Phillips/Rooks, and Post Rock. 

We look forward to you joining us!
