 K-State Research and Extension, along with several Extension Districts in north central KS, are bringing an online program to help producers with cattle marketing and end-of-year tax considerations. This program will be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 15. There is no cost to join this program.

There will be two main speakers for this program. The first speaker will be Glynn Tonsor, agriculture economist for K-State Research and Extension. Tonson will discuss selling wintered calves, the subsequent spring, and selling calves at weaning in the fall. The second speaker will be Clay Simons, executive agriculture economist for Kansas Farm Management Association. Simons will discuss end of year tax considerations for cattle producers. After each session, there will be a question and answer dialogue for the participants.

For those who are unable to join, K-State will record the session to view later. To join the “virtual” meeting, go to and provide your name and email. A link will then be sent to join the meeting on Dec. 15.

Anyone who has questions or needs help signing up may contact any central Kansas Extension office.
