Agriculture Today Radio Program Monday, June 17

Livestock economist Derrell Peel of Oklahoma State University
provides this week's cattle market analysis:  he comments on the
boxed beef market, which has managed to remain strong, even after
falling back some from record-high levels...he also looks at the
USDA's latest beef production forecast for the remainder of 2013

K-State swine nutritionist Bob Goodband advises hog producers to
monitor the oil content of distillers' dried grains when using those
as a primary feedstuff, as some ethanol producers are now extracting
oil from their DDGS, which significantly affects the nutritional
value to hogs...also, full details on the upcoming Bob Hines Swine
Classic, sponsored by K-State and to be held in early July

And for this week's Kansas 4-H segment, the coordinator of Operation:
Military Kids, K-State's Ann Domsch, talks about a couple of special
camps for military family youth coming up this summer
