The Kansas Livestock Association has opened a new office in Scott City.

The livestock association plans to move 11 employees in its KLA Environmental Services division previously located in Salina to the new facility.

The agency says that division has experienced growing demand from the cattle feeding and dairy industries for a variety of services. Those include waste management system design, nutrient management plans and assistance with permit applications for facilities.

The building opened Tuesday, and an open house is planned for July 23.
