University of Minnesota Extension Dairy Educator relocating to Rochester Regional Office

Mon, Jul 7th, 2014
Posted in All Agriculture

As of July 1, Jim Paulson, Extension Educator-Dairy, will be relocating to the Rochester Regional Extension Office from the Willmar Regional Office. Paulson worked from the Rochester office for a few months in 2012, before moving into the office at Willmar.

Paulson’s move will strategically place him in an area of higher dairy farm concentration making him more readily available to a larger dairy audience and will allow greater programming efficiencies.

With Neil Broadwater’s retirement in 2012, and Chuck Schwartau’s move to Regional Director in late 2013, the southeast dairy region of Minnesota was left without an Extension dairy educator so this move with help direct more resources back into the region. Paulson has focused much of his work on nutrition and especially the role of forages in the dairy ration. Paulson is fairly well known in southeast Minnesota for his work in Extension and in the private sector for several years.

Other members of the Extension Dairy Team include Jim Salfer, Extension Educator at St. Cloud; Brad Heins, researcher at the Morris Research and Outreach Center; and Marcia Endres, professor at the St. Paul Campus. Several other campus-based specialists and county educators also contribute to the dairy education efforts around the state.
