(Audio)  N-U Vice President Listens To West Point Area Thoughts And Concerns

University of Nebraska Vice President for Agriculture Mike Boehm spent a couple  of hours at the Nielsen Center in West Point Tuesday night listening to thoughts and concerns about the university’s role in northeast Nebraska.



Around 35 people attended the listening session with  around 10 people making comments, mostly about the Haskell Ag Lab and the impact 4-H and the extension educators have on the area.





Deb Schroeder, a retired Extension Educator who spent more than 40 years in northeast Nebraska, expressed concerns about the lack of climate research on cattle and the shift of emphasis from youth development to  nutrition.  Schroeder also said in her opinion, Extension educators are being required to be specialized over too large an area.



Boehm said he’ll be putting together the input he received in West Point and will be getting from  25 communities over nine days to  come up with a plan  to present to state lawmakers in the next session.
