TOPEKA, Kan. — KLA will hold its virtual Membership and Business Meeting this Thursday, December 17, from noon to 1:30 p.m. During this meeting, members will vote on policy that will guide the staff and volunteer leaders in 2021, hear from outgoing KLA President Harry Moser of Wheaton and elect a new president-elect for the association.
CattleFax Chief Executive Officer Randy Blach also will be on hand to provide a market outlook. He will take a top-to-bottom look at the beef industry, from projected feed and energy costs to the prospects for cattle numbers, total beef production, exports and beef demand during his presentation, sponsored by the Farm Credit Associations of Kansas. With two black swan events occurring in the last 18 months further exposing the need for additional shackle space and the importance of supply chain continuity, Blach also will discuss packing capacity and what that means for future growth in the cattle business.
Members who would like to participate in the Membership and Business Meeting must register by going here or calling the KLA office. Registered members will be sent a Zoom conference link prior to the meeting. This link will be specific to each individual and should not be forwarded.
As a reminder, it is strongly recommended that members access the virtual meeting using a personal computer. If one is not available, or internet connectivity is limited, KLA recommends using a tablet or a smart phone to access the meeting. If none of these options are available, members can call in, but participation will be significantly limited. Phone participants will not be able to see handouts, will not be able to access electronic voting, will be required to vote by roll call and may have limited ability to engage in discussion.
