Agriculture Today Radio Program Monday, April 16

The director of the Livestock Marketing Information Center, Jim Robb, offers this week's cattle market analysis:  he comments on the latest USDA beef trade data, and looks ahead to the next USDA cattle-on-feed report coming out this Friday.

K-State beef systems specialist Justin Waggoner has the details on the upcoming K-State Cattle Feeders College, to be held in early May at two locations in western Kansas...these have proven to be very valuable informational sessions for cattle feedlot operators and employees.

And for this week's Kansas 4-H segment, 4-H family and consumer sciences liason Linda Biles talks about the first-ever Kansas 4-H Clothing Camp taking place in June at Rock Springs 4-H Center.

Agriculture Today is broadcast each weekday morning at 10:00 on KFRM Radio, Clay Center (550 AM) and KLOE Radio, Goodland (730 AM), which collectively reach 75 counties in Kansas, parts of southern Nebraska, eastern Colorado and northern Oklahoma...the broadcast can also be heard over the K-State Radio Network web site.

K-State Research and Extension is a short name for the Kansas State University Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, a program designed to generate and distribute useful knowledge for the well-being of Kansans. Supported by county, state, federal and private funds, the program has county Extension offices, experiment fields, area Extension offices and regional research centers statewide. Its headquarters is on the K-State campus, Manhattan.
