Livestock economist Derrell Peel of Oklahoma State University
comments on the cattle markets: he goes over the USDA's latest
cattle-on-feed report, and remarks on the decision by the
Environmental Protection Agency not to grant waivers on the renewable
fuels standard, and what that means to cattle producers contending
still with high corn prices

K-State beef veterinarian Larry Hollis advises cattle producers to
test their ponds and low-running streams for toxic solids that may
have settled into those water sources as conditions remain dry

And for this week's Kansas 4-H segment, K-State 4-H events
coordinator Sarah Keatley looks ahead to the 2013 Citizenship in
Action event in Topeka, and how 4-Hers can take part in that
