WE’RE BACK! After a five-week break (late-summer interviews are hard to schedule when county fairs are going on!), we return to the studio to chat with Karaline Mayer, Waubunsee County’s agriculture & natural resources agent who also carries out 4-H youth development responsibilities. Kara tells us how she started her career after finding her passion in agriculture, how extension was able to serve and be part of a community effort to recover from tornado damage a few years ago, and she shares how extension agents have been busy helping producers manage the impact of drought this summer. On the lighter side, Kara and Megan compare notes on using horse trailers when moving into their dorms as college students, and Kara proves to be the ultimate good sport in telling us about some funny – but maybe not-so-fun for her – experiences.
