Cattlemen from across Kansas will be converging in Wichita next week for the annual convention of the Kansas Livestock Association amid all-time high cattle prices.
The three-day event that begins Wednesday touches on nutrition, cattle markets and retail sales.
Thursday will feature a presentation from CattleFax Executive Vice President Randy Blach talking about the cattle market outlook.
He will analyze on Thursday the factors behind the record prices along with a prediction for how long that profitability might last. He is expected to also discuss the rate of expansion of cattle herds and what that bodes for beef supplies.
Walmart executive Brittni Furrow is on tap Friday to explain her company’s global approach to sustainably produced food items and is expected to talk about where beef fits in it.
