RCLA Summer Tour

The Riley County Livestock Association will host their summer tour at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 27th, 2023 at River Creek Farms near Zeandale. River Creek Farms is a purebred seedstock operation featuring Simmental and SimAngus genetics. The Mertz family history in the area – Wabanusee and Riley Counties – dates back to 1890.

The tour of River Creek will begin at 5:00 p.m. on August 27th at the ranch, located at 7160 Zeandale Road, Manhattan, KS. The Mertz headquarters is located approximately 10 miles east of Manhattan on KS-18. Participants will meet at the River Creek headquarters for the tour, then will travel across K-18 and 1/4 mile east to the Mertz’s historic rock barn for supper. Participants are asked to bring their own lawn chairs as seating during the meal.

Supper will be provided at no charge, courtesy of the Riley County Livestock Association. Reservations are needed by August 24th and can be made online at www.riley.ksu.edu or by calling the Riley County Extension Office at 785/537-6350.
