Nebraska Extension in Gage County

Local Interest

In a joint effort, Kansas and Nebraska Extension are hosting a 3 meeting series to address some possible options to help maintain cattle inventory with limited perennial pastures. Topics at these meeting will include confined cow feeding and management, usage of corn residue, cover crops and annual forages systems.

 •  The first meeting will be held on December 12, 2017 at the Helvering Center (111 S. 8th St, Marysville, KS) with a start time of 6:30 pm. Please RSVP to Anastasia Johnson at anastasia@ksu.edu or 785-562-3531.

Rob Eirich, Nebraska Director of BQA and local Nebraska Extension Beef Educators will be presenting BQA Best Management Practices, Animal Health Stewardship and the new Veterinary Feed Directive.  Beef Cattle Producers are committed to producing a quality, wholesome and safe beef product for consumers.  These meetings will update producers on implementing BQA practices and help prepare them for the VFD Regulations beginning January 2017.

All producers are invited to attend these free meetings. The meetings will also be a Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) Certification for those producers needing certification or recertification. There is a $20 fee for those wanting to become BQA certified/recertified, which is good for a three year time period.
