Stacy Campbell is the agriculture agent in Ellis County as part of the Cottonwood District. His office is in Hays. He talks with us about his 31 years in extension both in Kansas and, previously, in Texas. His background and formal education are in animal science, but he has become well versed in crop production over the years and speaks about the value of being part of a system in which expertise can be accessed easily.

Stacy also talks about trying new ways to share information, including through television and online video through local partnerships. Several K-State Research and Extension agents work with a local TV provider in Hays to produce “Extension Ed Talks.”  

Stacy’s most recent program is on Foliar Fungicides for Wheat.

A mild warning for anyone listening while eating: During a humorous discussion about 4-H trips, the conversation turns to children who don’t quite know their limits when it comes to eating junk food and car sickness!
