As of July 1, 2014, Jim Paulson, Extension educator in dairy, will be relocating to the Rochester Regional Extension Office from the Willmar Regional Extension Office. Jim's move strategically places him in a concentrated dairy area allowing him to interact more with dairy producers and industry professionals. The move will also result in greater programming opportunities and efficiencies within the dairy team.

Andrea brings experience from her most recent job as coordinator for the Maryland Beginning Farmer Success program at the University of Maryland. Her office will be at the Arboretum, and she starts on July 15.
