Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, Secretary of Agriculture Dale Rodman and beef producers from across the state are traveling to Russia and Kazakhstan Oct. 6 to17 to promote agriculture trade with those countries.

“Agriculture is our state’s largest industry and a cornerstone of the Kansas economy,” Brownback said. “I’m looking forward to this opportunity to further expand what the Kansas cattle industry has to offer beyond our state and national borders.”

Steve Irsik of Irsik Equities in Garden City, Mark Brunner of Cow Camp Ranch in Ramona and Thad Geiger of Geiger Farms in Troy are the beef producers traveling to Russia and Kazakhstan to market Kansas purebred beef cattle on behalf of Kansas ranchers. Irsik, Brunner and Geiger, along with counterparts from Colorado and Montana, were selected to travel on a 12-day mission led jointly by the Kansas, Colorado and Montana Departments of Agriculture.
