Dear friends in the cattle industry, It is my honor to welcome you back to Lexington for the 2017 KCA Convention and Agriculture Industry Trade Show. Returning to Lexington sure is nice for me as it is right down the road from my farm! This is a great location to bring in some of our great cattlemen from around the area with plenty of shopping and entertainment. Our cattle industry in the state has a lot going on right now and the convention is a great time to talk about those issues and how to move forward with this cattle market. In addition to visiting with friends and cattle producers from across the state, you will also have the opportunity to discuss economic and policy issues in our state for the coming year at our Convention. Your participation is essential to making the decisions and shaping the future of the cattle industry in our state. Thanks for being a part of the 2017 KCA Convention. Enjoy all of the meetings and trade show, but make sure to enjoy time with all of your friends and fellow cattlemen across the state too! Enjoy! Tim White Convention Chairman

A significant portion of the research program has been aimed at the identification of genetic variation causing congenital abnormalities in several species. Over the past ten years, his laboratory has identified more than a dozen deleterious mutations in cattle and sheep. Almost all of the DNA-based diagnostic tests for monitoring these genetic abnormalities are currently used within the industry. Current research interests include several genetic variants in cattle leading to increased growth rate and meat quality. Additionally, gene-editing methods are being used in cattle and pigs to introduce alleles that might contribute to enhanced production efficiencies.
