English author Charles Dickens famously penned, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..."
If Dickens were around in cattle country today, he's probably be thinking about the same thing.
Cattlemen are receiving substantial returns for calves of all shapes and sizes. Cattle buyers are wondering how long these lofty prices will last.
The Central Kansas Extension District is hosting an educational event to talk about just these things.
On Wednesday, October 29 in Minneapolis, the "Risk Management and Revenue Protection" workshop will feature experts from Kansas State University, Bennington State Bank, and Kansas Farm Management.
Featured talks will focus on risk management strategies for livestock producers, local ag-lender advice, considerations for taxes, and reinvestment options. A meal will be served at 5:15 pm and is sponsored by Bennington State Bank.
Talks will begin at 5:45 p.m. in the Ottawa County Courthouse Basement Meeting Room. After the presentations, speakers will be on hand for a question and answer session. The meeting is expected to wrap up around 8 p.m.
K-State is committed to making this meeting, like all their activities and programs, open to everyone. If you have special requirements because of a physical, vision or hearing disability, please call 785-392-2147 so special accommodations can be made.
Registration only cost $8, but the information gained could save you thousands as you apply it to your farm and ranch operation.
If you or someone you know wants to prepare their ag-business for the uncertainty of tomorrow's cattle markets, call Anthony Ruiz at 785-392-2147 or email [email protected] to RSVP.
