KLA has teamed up with Kansas Farm Bureau and Kansas State University Extension to sponsor a program on “Legal Issues Resulting From Livestock Buyer Bankruptcy.” Roger McEowen, the Kansas Farm Bureau professor of agricultural law and taxation at the Washburn University School of Law, will lead the discussion. His presentation will take place April 12 at the Nova Theatre in Stockton. Registration opens at 2:15 p.m., with McEowen’s presentation at 2:30 p.m. and time for questions to follow at 3:30 p.m. The program is open to the public.
Following the bankruptcy filing of Plainville Livestock Commission, Inc., in which numerous producers were not paid for cattle sold at the market, KLA began visiting with McEowen about ways to help producers be informed of their legal rights and resources available. In addition to the April 12 program, McEowen also has posted the following informational blogs that may be helpful to cattle producers with questions.
