Animal Science



While farming is admirable as a way of life, it is also a business. Therefore, our research-based programs promote:

  • effective production practices;

  • competitive pricing;

  • business management skills;

  • environmentally sound production practices;

  • alternative agriculture businesses;

  • youth education about food and fiber sources;

  • successful living on a few acres.

Replacement Program

The Sunflower Supreme Replacement Heifer Program is a joint effort between K-State Research and Extension and the Kansas Department of Agriculture to provide research-based best management protocols for beef cattle producers. This program is for Kansas producers who want to improve their management techniques and marketability of heifers.

With the reduction in total cows numbers occurring in the United States, cattle producers who offer a value-added product have the opportunity to be at the fore-front of filling this void in cow numbers.
