Kansas will be one of five states hosting Stockmanship & Stewardship events during 2019. The Kansas Beef Council will host cattle producers for further education on proper stockmanship techniques September 20-21 at the Stout Center on the Kansas State University campus in Manhattan. Staff with the NCBA producer education team made the announcement during the Cattle Industry Convention last week in New Orleans, LA.
This is the third year for the sessions on proper cattle handling and stewardship. The events include a live cattle demonstration and hands-on opportunities, as well as Beef Quality Assurance training. Some of the information presented on sustainability, environmental stewardship and animal health will have a regional focus.
Other dates and locations in the 2019 series are March 20-21 at Tulare, CA; June 28-29 in Ames, IA; August in Fort Collins, CO; and October 4-5 in West Monroe, LA. Registration information on the Kansas program will be provided as the dates draw nearer.
