Kansas Beef Producers: Sign-up for South American Trade Mission

August 28, 2014
 
 

The Kansas Department of Agriculture (KDA) is seeking individuals to participate on an agricultural trade mission to Argentina and Uruguay in October of 2014. The goal of this mission is to provide an opportunity for Kansas purebred beef cattle producers and allied industry to begin developing relationships with livestock producers in Argentina and Uruguay.

Beef farm and processing facility tours along with breed association visits will be scheduled to allow Kansas ranchers and agribusinesses the opportunity to learn about key Argentine and Uruguayan markets for Kansas beef genetics.

This trade mission is funded in part by the United States Livestock Genetic Export, Inc. Selected participants will receive travel stipends for airfare and in-country travel. Participants will be responsible for the cost of hotels, meals and other incidental expenses.

Applications forms are available online at the KDA website. The deadline for submitting applications for consideration is Wednesday, Sept. 10.

For more information on the trade mission, please contact Billy Brown, billy.brown@kda.ks.gov or 785-564-6752, or J.J. Jones, jj.jones@kda.ks.gov or (785) 215-5114.
