Excellent Ag education and MSUE promotion

The webinar series and now these podcasts are excellent. It can be hard to get away to meetings and these tools make it easy to keep working on the farm and plug in to hear the latest from Extension. I have no doubt this podcast will get info to more growers, and also make them aware of the services and resources available. Keep up the good work! - Carl
