The Adair County Cattlemen’s Association will hold their next meeting on Monday, Aug. 8 at 6 p.m. at the Adair County Cooperative Extension Service. All cattle owners (members and non-members) are highly encouraged to attend.
2022 has thrown a lot of obstacles in the way of cattle producers including high fuel, fertilizer and feed costs. Couple those challenges with drought conditions this summer and the result is a challenging winter awaiting cattle producers.
Guest speakers including UK Ag Economist Dr. Kenny Burdine and UK Beef Specialist Dr. Jeff Lehmkuhler will be on hand discussing market outlooks, budgeting for winter feeding, and strategies to winter cattle and forage considerations. A complimentary meal will be provided.
Cattle producers wishing to attend should RSVP by calling the County Extension Office at (270) 384-2317.
