Building a legacy, honoring a friend

The Stanley Stout Center has been in use for just one year but it’s already having a big impact on K-State and the region. The K-State Legacy Sale, the annual cattle sale of the K-State Purebred Beef Unit, was held the first day the center was open for business last year. This year’s sale is Friday, March 7. Proceeds from the sale in 2013 increased 21 percent from the previous year. Those funds pay all the expenses of operating a 300-cow herd at K-State. “Animals raised by the unit are used in more than a dozen classes, including animal evaluation, reproduction, behavior, health and management laboratories,” said Dan Moser, associate professor in the department of animal sciences and industry. “The hands-on experiences with livestock that our students gain are an incredibly valuable part of their education.”

“Being a part of the first sale to be held in the Stout Center was an experience I will never forget,” said Tamar Adcock, a senior in animal sciences and industry and a member of the livestock sales management class. “Stanley Stout was an auctioneer who gave so much to the livestock industry and the Stout Center is an excellent tribute to carry his legacy into the future.”
