For those of you that have not been able to attend, our goal is to have a more “user-friendly” field day – more interactive and less structured. You can come and go as you please, attend various demonstrations of your choosing, look at cattle exhibits, visit with commercial exhibitors, visit with other producers, or study various educational exhibits.
The name “Beef Bash” implies that we want you to have an enjoyable time while you learn.
You can see our cattle operation, which provides animals for beef research. Education opportunities will abound and will be scattered throughout the entire research station.
Many stations will host researchers from the across CAFE will be share their research and its relevance to the Kentucky Beef Industry. ANR Agents will share successful beef programming ideas and their impact on beef productivity.
Extension specialists will discuss state educational programming and impact.
Finally, we will discuss the management program or our cow herd; our goals, plans, and procedures.
A large tent in the staging area will house commercial exhibits and serve as the focal point of all activities. Information on many new products will be available.
Various “how-to” demonstrations will be conducted throughout the day.
You can attend those that interest you and ask questions in a less formal environment. Examples of demonstrations may include: bull selection, estrous synchronization technology, ration balancing, freeze-branding, alternative fertilizers, fencing and water, etc.
Visit with the leadership of the Kentucky Cattlemen’s Association and the University of Kentucky. Also, come and visit with other cattlemen from across the state and be a part of making KCA the voice for all Kentucky cattle producers.
