  • A Better Late Than Never Cattle Market Update
  • A Vision for K-State with Marshall Stewart
  • Spring Garden and Landscape Pests


00:01:06  — A Better Late Than Never Cattle Market Update: This Thursday's show begins with our cattle market update for the week from K-State livestock economist, Glynn Tonsor. Glynn explains a rather sideways market, where feedyard net returns may fall in the coming year, and some updated tools that are readily available on AgManager.

Updated Hog Contract Evaluation Tool on AgManager


00:12:02  — A Vision for K-State with Marshall Stewart: We follow up the cattle markets with our new K-State senior vice president for executive affairs, Marshall Stewart. Marshall shares his background with working at other Land-Grant institutions, his belief in the important role of Extension programming in Kansas, and his vision for K-State in the future. He's only been on the job for a month now, but it is fair to say that Marshall has quickly transitioned to bleeding purple with his passion for our university and its work. 


00:23:01  — Spring Garden and Landscape Pests: We end with this week's horticulture segement where K-State horticultural entomologist, Raymond Cloyd, shares information on insects to keep in mind as we prepare for spring in our gardens and landscapes in Kansas.
