There is no cost for the event and the public is invited. It does in- clude a noon meal which means that early registration ,s necessary. The session will kick offat 10 a.m. with a welcome by John Pollak, direc- tor of USMARC. and Gary Rupp, Di- rectorof GPVEC. They will be fol- lowed by the keynote speaker, Kit Pharo. from Pharo Cattle Company of Wells. Colo. His presentation will be segmented throughout the day and is entitled "Thinking Outside of the Box" Pharo will challenge beef producers to think outside the box (paradigm) they have put themselves in. He will give time-tested information that they can readily' and easily put to use. Discussion during the day will in- clude the difference between being production-driven and being profit- driven, emphasizing that the only way for agriculture to be sustainable is for it to be profitable and enjoyable. Pharo will also discuss the "Three Keys" to making the most efficient use of your available forage resources including: Phinned Rotational Grazing; Match- ing Your Production Cycle (calving, (Width x Length x Interior Ceiling Height) Price (Ten foot on center poles and trusses) 24x30x10 ICH - $5,900 30x40x10 ICH - $8,200 30x50x10 ICH - $9,542 40x40x12 ICH- $11,719 40x60x12 ICH - $15,247 60x80x14 ICH- $29,500 60x100x14 ICH - $35,000 (Eight foot on center poles and trusses) 24x24x10 ICH- $5,300 80x80x14 ICH - $48,000 80x100x14 ICH - $57,000 * All buildings come with one endwal] slider and one standard walk door * Other options and sizes are available * All prices above are ERECTED prices on your level site *, A stamped truss draving is hacluded in the price (engineered plans and permits are not) * Poles are laminated 2x6, 2x8 or 2x10 pressure treated lumber depending on the size of the structure P.S.

Lunch will be provided and will be rotated in during the noon session. Brian Farts, Kansas State Extension meat goat and sheep specialist, will engage with the producers during two rotations addressing the possibilities available to beef producers through alternative species grazing. He will focus on the advantages of using small ruminants to maximize available re- sources in a mixed species grazing system. Directly after the lunch and alterna- tive grazing rotations, the afternoon session will again feature Pharo. These sessions will help ranchers put more profit and enjoyment into their business and make their business more sustainable. Farts and Pharo will then join on stage to pull everything together, give their final thoughts and considerations and then avail themselves for a coffee- shop style panel discussion during which cattlemen can ask questions and get answers on topm questions that came to them during the sessions. The discussion will be moderated by Gary Rupp, Director of the Great Plains Veterinary Education Center.
