    MY MOST MEMORABLE AG DAY EXPERIENCE:  The ribbon cutting for the UDairy Creamery in 2011.  It was such a culmination of hard work, and a proud moment personally and professionally. 

    THE BEST THING TO DO AT AG DAY IS:  Watch our students hard at work.  For me, it’s the best reward...and the most entertaining to watch them learn how to use a walkie-talkie!

    AN INTERESTING FACT ABOUT THE COLLEGE OF AG & NR THAT I RECENTLY LEARNED: We have started to expand our partnerships with universities in Brazil.  We have students and faculty who are visiting on a routine basis and even some Brazilian students who are coming to UD to study!
