Developing the next generation of agricultural leaders and advocates is a passion for Dr. Gary Webb and Christine Sudbrock. Both are faculty members in the William H. Darr School of Agriculture at Missouri State University.
Webb and Sudbrock recently received a $277,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for their project “Linking to Focus on Agriculture Sustainability and Food Security.”
This project will create two new agriculture courses focusing on sustainability: Survey of Sustainable Animal Agriculture and Advocating Policies Affecting Food Security.
The program will also support research on public perception about the country’s agricultural practices and create a one-day forum for advocates and community members to discuss American agricultural production issues.
Maroon Minutes highlight Missouri State University’s points of pride: the accomplishments of our faculty, staff, students and supporters. Each Maroon Minute first airs during a home football or basketball game.
