Register Today for K-State ASI Family & Friends Reunion

Pre-registration deadline is Oct. 5 for seventh annual K-State ASI Family & Friends Reunion.

KSU ASI Family & Friends Reunion

Plan to be “Together Again” for the seventh annual Kansas State University Animal Sciences & Industry Family & Friends Reunion as we will welcome ASI alumni and friends back to campus and reunite with friends, faculty, staff and students. The event will be hosted at the open-air venue, the Stanley Stout Center, on Friday, Oct. 15.

Starting at 5:30 p.m., the event will feature premium quality meats and dairy products, including pork, beef and chicken; live entertainment by the Too Many Degrees Band, featuring KSU ASI Professor Dr. David Grieger; and a Junior Wildcat Barnyard area designed for the youngest members of the ASI family. You won’t want to miss the performance by the “best band in the land,” the K-State Marching Band. 

A highlight of this year’s reunion will be the presentation of the Don L. Good Impact Award to U.S. Premium Beef (USPB). USPB is a consumer-based beef marketing company, that is independently owned by beef producers that range from commercial ranchers to feeders. This organization has been responsible for providing better opportunities for producers to earn premiums based on the quality of their animals. 


The award, presented by the Livestock and Meat Industry Council Inc. (LMIC), is named in honor of Good, who is a former head of the Kansas State University Department of Animal Sciences and Industry (ASI), and recognizes positive impact on the livestock and meat industry or agriculture. 

“Plan to join us for an evening of great food, good music and catching up with friends and ASI faculty and staff,” says Mike Day, K-State ASI department head. “Register today for this great opportunity to have our ASI family together again.” 

Pre-registration deadline is Tuesday, Oct. 5. You can register online at asi.ksu.edu/familyandfriends. For more information about the event you can also follow the Reunion’s social media channels. For questions about the event, contact Lois Schreiner at 785-532-1267 or lschrein@ksu.edu.
