Top Beef Breed Associations to Meet at K-State
MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Two of the world’s top beef breed associations are bringing together their collective expertise for the 2012 Beef Profit Alliance, July 22-24 at Kansas State University.
Combined, the Red Angus Association of America and the American Simmental Association have a multi-breed database of more than 9 million animals, including thousands of sires.
That collective knowledge will be the focus of this year’s national meeting at K-State. The program includes university and industry professionals in breeding, veterinary medicine, meat science, cow-calf production, seedstock production, animal health and more.
Registration costs $85, which includes two meals and transportation to an “Evening in the Flint Hills” on July 23.
More information is available on the breed associations’ websites at American Simmental Association and Red Angus Association of America.
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.
