K-State’s Cattlemen’s Day scheduled for March 1
Kansas State University’s Animal Sciences and Industry Department will host Cattlemen’s Day 2024 on Friday, March 1, at Weber Hall in Manhattan. A highlight of this year’s event will be Richard Linton, K-State president, who will discuss K-State’s strategy for the future.

The program begins at 10 a.m. with Linton followed by ASI Department Head Mike Day who will share how ASI plans to embrace the past and look to the future. The morning program will wrap up with Glynn Tonsor, K-State ag economics professor, giving a beef industry economic outlook.

“We’re excited to announce our 111th KSU Cattlemen’s Day program,” says A.J. Tarpoff, K-State associate professor and Cattlemen’s Day co-chairman. “Our goal is to share the latest information and research with attendees to better prepare them for management decisions in the upcoming year.”

The day starts at 8 a.m. with refreshments, educational exhibits and a commercial trade show. Tarpoff adds, “This year we have numerous participants signed up for our allied industry trade show. Hosted on the floor in Weber Arena, the trade show provides a forum for the attendees to observe what’s new in the beef industry and network with key industry leaders.”

Lunch will be smoked brisket sponsored by U.S. Premium Beef and trade show exhibitors. Cajun-spiced catfish will also be available. The afternoon sessions will feature K-State faculty and industry presentations in Weber Hall 123, 146 and 111 discussing an array of topics, including:
