Dr. Roger Rennekamp, associate dean and director, Ohio State University Extension, will present, “Agricultural Transformation and Extension’s Next Century,” on the heels of the recent 100th anniversary of the Cooperative Extension System.

In his talk, Dr. Rennekamp will also discuss the importance of utilizing a “food system” rather than “food chain” approach, as well as the implications that has upon the expertise needed for agriculture to adapt in a changing world.
