The keynote speaker at Kansas State University Cattlemen’s Day will talk about the potential for plant-sourced and laboratory-produced meat to take market share from the red meat industry. Brad Morgan, senior director of protein for the Performance Food Group, will offer his predictions during the 106th annual event, March 1 in Weber Hall.
K-State Ag Economist Glynn Tonsor will follow Morgan with a discussion on the importance of international trade as the U.S. beef herd continues to expand. Topics for the afternoon sessions will focus on beef quality grading revisions, antibiotic stewardship, the CattleTrace pilot project and factors influencing calf values.
