Agriculture Today Radio Program Wednesday, April 25

K-State beef veterinarian Larry Hollis comments on yesterday's report
from the USDA on the discovery of BSE in a California dairy cow: the
facts of the situation, and how it illustrates the effectiveness of
the livestock disease "firewall" in the U.S. food animal system

The director of K-State's Western Kansas Agricultural Research
Centers, Bob Gillen, talks about managing pastures following last
year's extreme drought in the High Plains...he addressed that topic
at last week's Beef Research Roundup at Hays

Agricultural law specialist Roger McEowen covers a recent Kansas
court decision on a dispute between a local grain elevator and its
home city over noise and dust...a case which points out the need for
specifics in city ordinances

And K-State's Gus van der Hoeven presents "Stop, Look and Listen",
his weekly commentary on rural Kansas
