POSTPONED: Update on Low-Stress Livestock Handling Workshop

6 02 2014

MCPHERSON, KS – Due to poor current weather conditions and additional forecasted storms for later in the week, the Low-Stress Cattle Handling Workshop scheduled for Feb. 8 in Salina has been postponed.

Workshop organizer Mary Howell notes, “Kansas livestock producers are working diligently to keep their animals fed and cared for as a major winter storm shuts down the entire state and more hazardous weather is predicted for the weekend. We are working with Dr. Locatelli to reschedule the conference later this spring.”

Howell went on to say, “We have great respect for the men and women in the livestock industry, we understand the needs of the animals come first, and we most importantly do not want to put anyone in harm’s way during blizzard conditions. Watch for upcoming information as to the new date.”
