K-State to host webinar featuring experts speaking on cattle markets and weather forecasts


K-State Research and Extension and the K-State Department of Animal Sciences and Industry will host a webinar to assist Kansas beef producers in navigating through the current and upcoming weather seasons in the midst of a market volatile from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

During this time of year, weather conditions can vary widely and, according to K-State beef cattle extension veterinarian AJ Tarpoff, cause stress on cattle.

K-State will seek to educate beef-production managers on tools and strategies for marketing and environmental forecasting.

The webinar will feature K-State climatologist Mary Knapp providing information on current and future weather forecasts and situations.

It will also feature members of the K-State beef extension team speaking about how to lessen heat stress on cattle and using beefbasis.com for cattle management.

The program will take place at noon (CDT) on June 4 via Zoom.

To register, visit ksubeef.org or contact Lois Schreiner at lschrein@ksu.edu or 785-532-1267.
