I have served the producers of Central and Eastern Oregon since July 1989 as an Area Extension Agronomist out of the Crook County Extension office in Prineville. Extension work has focused on working with Central Oregon Hay Growers' Assoc., Oregon Hay and Forage Assoc. (OHFA)., C.O. Forage Seminar, Oregon Hay King Contest, OHFA Fall Forage Seminar, Living on a Few Acres Expo, and forage, cereal, and irrigation management education for Ag producers, large and small acreage. Research has focused on irrigated forage and cereal species and varieties, and soil fertility and fertilizer recommendations. Present Extension project with colleagues in OR/WA/ID is an Inland Pasture Calendar, which describes irrigated and dryland pasture plant and root growth, every two weeks of calendar year, in every major land resource area (MLRA), east of the Cascade mountains.
