K-State To Host Webinar Focused On Helping Producers With Drought Decisions

May 17, 2022

The Kansas State University Research and Extension (KSRE) beef team will host a webinar Thursday (5/19) to help producers weigh options associated with current feed prices and the lack of forage availability in many areas due to drought. It will be held from noon to 1:00 p.m.    

“Producers are faced with challenging decisions since harvested feed supplies are depleted or gone, and the outlook for pasture production is well below normal in much of the state. Record high prices for many production inputs are another factor,” said Sandy Johnson, KSRE extension beef specialist in Colby.  

The webinar will open with general comments, then transition to a town hall format to address producer questions. In addition to beef specialists, agricultural economists and other subject-matter experts will be available during the session. Questions can be submitted ahead of time by sending them to Johnson at [email protected] or to your local county extension office.     

The webinar is free and open to all; however, registration is required. To register, click here. A recording of the webinar will be posted on www.KSUBeef.org soon after the meeting.
