Beef Classic in Stanley

Posted: Updated:

Dozens of present and future ranchers rubbed elbows today to talk about their industry.

The Mountrail County Beef Classic was held in Stanley and included information about everything from feed to water infiltration to cow herd mortality.

The event is put on the Mountrail County Ag Improvement Association.

Organizer Troy Coons says getting producers together in one place can be beneficial to everyone.

(Troy Coons, Mountrail Co. Ag Improvement Association) "Any time you get a bunch of folks together, the exchange of information will increase. That's where you get a lot of people under one roof with some experts and there's great dialog. That's what's needed compared to one guy talking to another guy at the coffee shop talking to another guy."

Today's beef classic was highlighted by an appearance by farm advocate and broadcaster Trent Loos loose.

We chatted with Loos about issues in the farming and ranching industry - and we'll share that conversation with you tomorrow.
