Innovations in Intensive Beef Cow Production, Care and Management

About the Dr. Kenneth & Caroline Eng (-K-) Trust Fund

The Dr. Kenneth & Caroline Eng (-K-) Trust Fund was established in 2011 by Kenneth in memory and as a legacy to his wife, Caroline, who loved life, cattle and cattle people, and to provide research money to universities to study cow/calf efficiency. Through development and adoption of technologies that reduce cost of feed, the long-term economic sustainability of the U.S. beef industry cow-calf sector will improve. Kenneth is from San Antonio, TX and has had a long career as a rancher and consulting feedyard nutritionist.
