Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly toured Lyons Ranch, near Manhattan, Kan. on May 12 to proclaim the month of May as Kansas Beef Month.

The governor was joined by the Kansas Department of Agriculture, members of the Kansas Beef Council, Kansas Livestock Association, members of the Lyons and Langvardt families, and other ag community members.

“We should all be proud of the strong beef industry in Kansas,” Kelly said.  “All of the farmers, ranchers and businesses like Lyons Ranch are important to the overall success of our state’s economy and the beef sector. Beef Month represents all of their significant contributions, and I thank them for their hard work and for feeding the nation.”

Kansas is recognized across the nation and the world for raising healthy cattle and producing high-quality, nutritious beef. Beef cattle contribute nearly $13 billion annually to the state's economy, and Kansas exported more than $1.7 billion in fresh, chilled and frozen beef to countries around the world last year.
