Final Ranch Field Day This Week in Russell County

August 22, 2019

Managing anaplasmosis in cowherds and the Kansas Secure Beef Supply Plan will be among highlights of today’s KLA/Kansas State University Ranch Management Field Day at Rusty Acres near Dorrance. The Russell County cow-calf and farming business is owned by the Lyman Nuss family. 

K-State veterinarian Hans Coetzee will help ranchers identify anaplasmosis infections and highlight management strategies to minimize and control the disease in Kansas cowherds. He will be joined on the program by Kansas Department of Agriculture Animal Health Planner Emily Voris, who will explain how cattle producers can benefit their businesses and the industry by participating in the Kansas Secure Beef Supply Plan. 

Other topics on the Dorrance field day program are controlling locust trees and yucca shrubs and the CattleTrace disease traceability program. 

Registration starts at 3:00 p.m., the informational sessions are at 3:45 p.m. and the event concludes with a beef dinner at 6:45 p.m. The field day will be free to attend, thanks to sponsorship from Bayer Animal Health and the Farm Credit Associations of Kansas.
