The “‘Corrals, Calcium, Costs and Cows: Management and Profit Strategies for 2018” sessions will begin on February 6 and continue through February 13 across the state.
“Over the past few months we’ve received quite a few questions from producers looking for profit tips and tools,” says Bob Weaber, a K-State Research and Extension cow-calf specialist. “The Winter Ranch Management series provides another great opportunity for state and local specialists to take our expertise out in the country for a series of impactful face-to-face meetings.”
Weaber will take part in the meetings, along with other state, district and local extension staff. Specialists will also be on hand to answer producers’ questions on animal health, nutrition, management, and more. Session topics include bud box cattle processing systems, cost, production and profit benchmarking, and mineral supplementation strategies.
“Early in the year is a great time for producers, to think and plan for the coming year,” Weaber continued. “Certainly, it is a good time of year to think about opportunities to reduce costs and enhance revenue streams.”
