Agriculture Today Radio Program Monday, April 1

Livestock economist Derrell Peel of Oklahoma State University
provides this week's cattle market analysis: he comments on the
spillover effect of the USDA's surprising grain stocks report last
week on the cattle complex, and how supportive the resulting drop in
feedgrain prices could be for cattle prices in the longer term

From the Southern Plains Drought Summit last week, K-State range
scientist Keith Harmoney talks about planning cattle stocking
programs for this grazing season with the drought impacts in mind:
he compares the current situation to past droughts in Kansas, and
what history tells us about managing those stocking rates

And for this week's Kansas 4-H segment, K-State 4-H specialist
Rod Buchele announces that registrations are being taking for the
2013 4-H Photo Adventure Camp coming up in June
