Agriculture Today Radio Program Tuesday, July 9


K-State livestock specialist Sandy Johnson talks about making the
most of drought-forced culling of the cow herd...she suggests that
the producer can use the opportunity to "re-shape" the herd by
culling both settled and open cows, and she talks up the idea of
"staging pregnancies" as part of the process

K-State beef systems specialist Jaymelynn Farney has still more
considerations on removing the cow herd from drought-impaired
pastures and placing them in confinement feeding...this time, looking
at the pen space and bunk space requirements for making this approach
work

Today's Kansas wheat harvest report features Extension agricultual
agent Julie Niehage of the Golden Plains Extension District in
northwest Kansas, covering Logan, Gove and Trego counties

And K-State wildlife specialist Charlie Lee talks about the most
effective and practical means of fixing a leaky farm pond

Agriculture Today is broadcast each weekday morning at 10:00 on KFRM
Radio, Clay Center (550 AM) and KLOE Radio, Goodland (730 AM), which
