Callahan Grund, the son of Jerry and Chrysanne Grund of Wallace, has been awarded the $2,500 Cattlemen’s Scholarship from GoBob Pipe & Steel and the Kansas Livestock Foundation (KLF). Grund assists with his family’s seedstock operation, which consists of Gelbvieh, Angus and balancer genetics. He is very active in 4-H, currently serving as Wallace County 4-H Council president. He also is serving as treasurer of the Kansas Gelbvieh Junior Association and has been a member of the American Gelbvieh Junior Association for 10 years. Grund will be a freshman at Fort Scott Community College this fall, where he will be a member of the livestock judging team and major in animal science and nutrition.
     Funding for the Cattlemen’s Scholarship is generated through the purchase of GoBob Pipe & Steel products by KLA members. The company donates a percentage of all member purchases to KLF. Additional funds for the scholarship were generated through the auction of two Haymonster Hay Feeders, donated by GoBob, at the 2013 KLA Convention. GoBob is a distributor of farming supplies, such as steel pipe and gates, corral and fence materials and heavy-duty equipment.

KLA Vice President of Communications Todd Domer says the Kansas Legislature took action on a flurry of bills before it reached first adjournment. This included proposed legislation benefitting farmers, ranchers and feeders.
