Andy Londo is the newest Assistant Director for Agriculture and Natural Resources for OSU Extension and started in September. He wants to meet producers, supporters and suppliers for production agriculture in Ohio, and this is one great place to do that. In the Assistant Director role, Andy will help shape the education, research and extension activities of the department of Extension. And he is my new boss.
