The Farm Science Review Hall of Fame will welcome its 23rd class of inductees at the Vice President’s Luncheon on September 18. Jim Beuerlein, Michael Gahn and Bobby Moser have been selected for induction because of their contributions to the success of the Farm Science Review. The 50th Farm Science Review is September 18 to 20 at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London.
Jim Beuerlein, Mt. Gilead
Jim was a professor, researcher, and State Extension leader with The Ohio State University and has become a nationally known expert in small grain production — particularly soybeans. Jim was very influential in the move to narrow row soybean production. He served on the Farm Science Review Program & Policy committee.
Mike Gahn, Worthington
As a representative of DuPont Pioneer, Mike built a partnership with the Review to provide in-kind donations of seed for the field demonstration plots. DuPont Pioneer’s gifts became a model by which other seed companies could contribute to the continuing education of the region’s farmers. As a friend of the Farm Science Review and Ohio State, Mike has set a remarkable example for others to help make lifelong learning possible.
Dr. Bobby Moser, Dublin
If you have attended the Review in the last 20 years, you are sure to have seen Bobby Moser, Vice President and Dean of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University. While he’s a faithful attendee and host during those three days in September, his involvement is year-round since the Farm Science Review reports to his office. Moser’s passion for bringing the latest knowledge and technology to the farmers of Ohio and surrounding region are unmatched, and he has contributed greatly to the Review’s recognition as a leader in the farm show industry. “These leaders in the agricultural industry have been steadfast in their support of the Farm Science Review as a venue for sharing the latest technology,” said Chuck Gamble, Manager of the Farm Science Review. “It’s because of people like this that the Review and the farmers we serve have sustained 50 years of success.”
