Agriculture Today Radio Program Monday, December 3


Livestock economist Derrell Peel of Oklahoma State University offers
this week's insight on the cattle markets:  he looks at the bump in
retail beef demand ahead of the New Year's holiday, and how long that
will last in the market, and shares his profitability outlooks for
cow-calf, stocker and feedlot producers in 2013.


K-State beef veterinarian Larry Hollis talks about preparing calving
sites for cows and heifers as calving time approaches, once again
strongly endorsing a herd rotation system using multiple calving
pastures.


And for this week's Kansas 4-H segment, K-State 4-H specialist
Pam van Horn and Golden Prairie Extension Director Scott Barrows
recap Kansas 4-Her activities at the recent National 4-H Congress in
Atlanta.


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 Radio Network website.
