Eastern Washington ranchers will have the chance to meet the final candidates for a key Washington State University Extension livestock position next week.
WSU has been looking to fill the regional livestock specialist position for northeast Washington since longtime extension educator Tom Platt retired in July 2013 after more than 30 years.
Live presentations will be 8:45-9:45 a.m. July 14 and 15 in the commissioners’ chambers in the basement of the Lincoln County Courthouse, 450 Logan St., Davenport, Wash.
Paul Kuber presents July 14 and Juan Solomon presents July 15.
Each candidate will give a 30-45 minute presentation on how they would develop effective livestock and forage research and educational programs for northeast Washington ranchers. There will be 15-30 minutes for questions following each presentation.
Each candidate will also give his presentation on the Internet via Adobe Connect. Sign in at http://breeze.wsu.edu/newa/. Kuber’s online seminar begins at 4 p.m. July 14, Solomon’s seminar begins at 9 a.m. July 16.
