UNL Extension educators convene for annual spring conference

Posted: Updated:

Some of the region's top experts in the ag industry met today for their annual conference.
Dozens of faculty and staff members from the Panhandle Research and Extension Center were in attendance at the Gering Civic Center.

Speakers provided updates ranging from crop outlook and how to work with the media.

Interim Director Dr. Gary Hergert says it is important for the Extension Center staff to stay current with not only their own work... but the work of their peers.
"Well, there's just a lot of interaction that occurs in terms of idea sharing," says Hergert. "And sometimes you just need to be in the room with other folks to actually make that happen. And there's a lot to be said for good old face to face contact and communications."
The group spent the afternoon looking at programming needs for next year.
