Livestock economist Kate Brooks of the University of Nebraska is
featured in this week's cattle market segment:  she comments on the

announcement by a major beef packer that it will no longer receive
cattle fed out in Canada, because of the cost of country-of-origin

K-State beef scientist John Jaeger tells of his new research of beef
calf early-weaning programs, and how well those calves perform
compared to traditionally-weaned calves...it also evaluated the
positive aspects of cow nutrition and grass management that result
from early-weaning

And for this week's Kansas 4-H feature, K-State 4-H specialist Pam
van Horn is joined by the latest Kansan inducted into the National
4-H Hall of Fame, long-time K-State 4-H specialist Steve Fisher
