Agriculture Today Radio Program Monday, August 26


Livestock economist Derrell Peel of Oklahoma State University
provides this weeks' cattle market analysis:  he digs into the
surprisingly bullish numbers from last Friday's USDA cattle-on-feed
report, and comments on the current trend in heifer retention on the
part of cow-calf producers.


K-State beef veterinarian Larry Hollis goes over the specifics of the
proposed new regulations designed to halt the spread of trichomonasis
disease in cow-calf herds...the end of the public comment period on
those is coming up next week.


And for this week's Kansas 4-H segment, K-State 4-H specialist
Gary Gerhard has more details on the National Youth Science
Experiment coming up this fall, and how 4-H and other youth can take
part.


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 Research and Extension website.

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.
