K-State Cattlemen's Day Is March 2; Special "K" Bull, Heifer Sale to Follow

Registration, due Feb. 20, is $15 per person.

The 94th annual Kansas State University Cattlemen's Day will be March 2 at Weber Hall on the K-State campus in Manhattan.

The day provides cattle producers with the latest results in beef cattle research. This year's event will include the opportunity to attend symposiums, a cattle market outlook and a commercial trade show. The 2007 symposium topics are "Ethanol Byproduct Utilization," "Beef Reproduction" and "Adding Value to Calves."

Following the program, the 30th annual Special "K" Bull and Heifer Sale will begin at 3 p.m. at the university's purebred beef teaching center. K-State will sell about 80 bulls, 10 heifers, two embryo flushes, 50 cows and semen packages.

Registration for the day is $15 per person if paid by Feb. 20 or $25 on-site. The registration will cover handout materials and morning refreshments. The lunch for registered participants will be sponsored by U.S. Premium Beef and commercial exhibitors.
