Farm and Ranch Field Day scheduled for Jan. 6

Richard Snell Barton County Extension Agent

A top notch program for farmers in south central Kansas is coming up on Tuesday, January 6. The K-State Farm and Ranch Day will be held at Pratt Community College, in the Commons Area. The college is located on the northeast corner of Pratt on Highway 61.

Why am I telling you now? The registration deadline is December 17, if you want to pay $10. If you would rather pay $20, you can wait and register after that. We have registration brochures at our office. If you would like more information or want a brochure sent to you, call (620) 672-6121. This program is being sponsored by K-State Research & Extension in the seven counties to the south of us.

Some of the topics presented by K-State faculty will be: Farm Bill Update, Cattle Marketing, Grain Marketing, Forage Options for Cattle, Family Farm Transitions, Lease Arrangements, Precision Ag, Soil Analysis and Interpretation, and a Weed Control; and Herbicide Update.
