KCA Regional Meeting Scheduled
05/07/2019
 
KCA will host a regional meeting the evening of May 9th at Central Livestock in South Hutchinson. The meeting will begin at 6:00pm, is free and open to the public, and includes a free USA-Beef dinner.
 
David Worrell of Merck Animal Health will kick off the South Hutchinson meeting. He will discuss implants and strategic de-worming programs. Worrell will discuss the effects of introducing Ralgro; producers can actually contribute to sustainable beef production by improving weight gains without using additional natural resources.
 
Craig Kerbs with SmartLic will provide a presentation regarding livestock competition and the effects on herd nutrition. Mr. Kerbs and other animal nutrition experts have studied cattle feeding behavior, and he will explore telltale signs of how cattle compete with one another for proper access to minerals at the bunk. His presentation includes slides which demonstrate signs that cattle do not have proper access to essential minerals. Some concerns include over-crowding of mineral feeders, insufficient number of mineral feeders and salt blocks, and other signs.
 
The meeting includes a free USA beef dinner. To help ensure enough of the meal for everyone, please RSVP to 785-238-1483. Proud sponsors making the free meal possible, include: Merck Animal Health, SmartLic, State Auto Farm and Ranch, Rawhide Portable Corral, Central Livestock, KFSA, Central Prairie CO-OP, Ehling Custom Mills, Liquid+ Feeds, Prairie-Land Partners, Redinger Agency, Inc, and High Plains Farm Credit.
