K-State Beef Cattle Research Information Available Online


MANHATTAN, Kan. – A competitive edge when managing a beef cattle herd is always important, but never more so than this year with a historically small number of cattle on U.S. farms and ranches and accompanying lofty beef and cattle prices.

Producers interested in the latest Kansas State University beef cattle research, including management, nutrition, reproduction, and meat and food safety studies, can now access a new publication online: Cattlemen's Day 2014.

Presentations on some of the research projects included were featured at K-State’s Cattlemen’s Day, held March 7 in Manhattan.
