Registration is underway for the annual Kansas Cattlemen's Association Convention, Jan. 25-26 at the Grand Prairie Hotel in Hutchinson. This year's convention promises several information sessions designed to help beef producers increase profitability, learn about mandatory price reporting and get up-to-speed on what's happening in the Kansas legislature.
Cost to attend is $80 for the entire event, or $20 for sessions only (without meals.) Information is available by clicking on www.kansascattlemen.com.
Special guest speakers at this year's meeting include Dr. Temple Grandin, Colorado State University, who will speak about animal-friendly methods of cattle handling; A.J. Fabre, president of the Louisiana Shrimp Association on how Country of Origin Labeling has impacted his industry, plus sessions on animal health, livestock transportation regulations and cattle markets. A Capitol Hill update from Kansas lawmakers also is slated.
Registration per day is $65, if producers prefer that option.
