Agriculture

Our Ag staff is following advice from campus and other officials, and we are implementing some changes temporarily due to COVID-19. All of our face-to-face programs are postponed however we are doing as much remotely as we can. We are still available by phone, email or conference call.

There are several links to reliable information and current advisories on COVID-19 for family and farm in the right sidebar of our website home page.

If you need assistance with forage, water or soil testing, please call ahead to assure someone will be available to process samples. Please contact me if you need other assistance or have any questions. Thank you, Lynn
