"Extension and Policy - Education in the Real World"

Speaker will be Bob Young the former Chief Economist for the American Farm Bureau Federation.

One of the paramount roles for extension is dissemination of information to those who need it. This is never more evident than in the role extension can, does, and should play in educating the public regarding government policies. Whether a new farm bill or state set-back requirements, new migrant labor law provisions or food safety procedures, extension has a key role in transmitting information to the public.
