Greg Blonde recently received the 2015 Distinguished Service Award from the National Association of County Agriculture Agents during their Annual Meeting and Professional Improvement Conference July 15 in Sioux Falls, SD.  This award is given to Agents with more than 10 years of service in Cooperative Extension and have exhibited excellence in the field of Extension Education. This award is only presented to 2% of the County Extension Educators in Wisconsin each year.

Greg has been Waupaca County Agriculture Agent since 1984. His work focuses on dairy, forages and farm management. Recent highlights include: developing a conservation easement donation program to help protect local farmland from development; a statewide conference highlighting modern farm animal wellbeing practices; dairy price risk management; foliar fungicide research on forage crops; factsheets for pricing standing hay and corn silage crops, as well as a new android smart-phone app developed last fall for pricing high moisture corn.
