00:12:09  — The Legacy of the K-State Legacy Sale: What meaning is there really behind a name? For the K-State Legacy Sale taking place on March 3rd, legacy tells this sale’s story in more ways than one. Joining me to talk about the Legacy Sale is K-State faculty advisor for the Purebred Beef Unit, Chris Mullenix, and K-State Purebred Beef Unit manager, Shane Werk. They share insight on the history of the sale, the one-of-a-kind learning opportunity for students, and what buyers can expect to see this year.
