K-State beef veterinarian Larry Hollis cautions cattle producers
about several threats to herd health lingering from the drought:
blue-green algae in farm ponds, high prussic acid and nitrate levels
in crop stover, and alfatoxin in harvested corn to be used as a
feedgrain for cattle

The coordinator of the NRCS Lesser Prairie Chicken Initiative in
Kansas, Jon Ungerer, and the science advisor for the initiative,
Christian Hagen, report on a favorable new development concerning the
possible proposal of the lesser prairie chicken as a threatened or
endangered species...a listing that would have major consequences for
western Kansas agriculture

And K-State wildlife specialist Charlie Lee discusses the concept of
deer culling as a way to promote the development of a "trophy" deer
