Cattle Resiliency Study To Be Conducted
05/16/2013

Kansas State University scientists are part of a multistate partnership receiving a $9.6 million, five-year grant to find ways for cattle producers to adapt to climate extremes in their grazing operations.
 
     Kansas State agronomy professor and team leader Chuck Rice says the project's goal is to increase the resiliency of beef cattle operations on grazing lands and wheat pastures. He says reaching that goal could help cattle operations remain productive through a range of potential climate changes.
 
     The researchers will work with ranchers and farmers to evaluate management practices and suggest changes to improve resiliency.
 
     Sharing the grant are Oklahoma State University, the University of Oklahoma, USDA-Agricultural Research Service, the Noble Foundation and Tarleton State University in Texas.
