Continuing Education

11 Number of Presentations in 20091350 Total attendance at these presentations in 2009(details on each presentation are in the section "Presentations")4-H Engineering related projects.This area requires about 20% of my time. I'm Chair of the Management Committee that runs the National 4-H Engineering Challenge in Indiana each September. This event includes individual contests in Tractor, Lawn Tractor, Small Engines, Electricity, Welding, Computer, AerospaceBicycle, and Robots. States also compete as teams in the Engineering Bowl. At the state level I'm responsible for 7 days of contests held during the State Fair. In addition to the project areas listed above, we have ATV, Lawn Care, Woodworking, Rope and Radio Controlled Vehicles. Responsibilities include recruiting and organizing about 150 judges. Approximately 600 youth compete.Overall responsibilies include project manual updates. The Welding series has been a long term problem in terms of getting a second manual completed. A new ATV manual is in process to replace a national one that is out of print. These engineering related projects are a priority area for 4-H nationally as part of the SET emphasis (Science, Engineering and Technology). Getting more youth to pursue careers in these fields is essential for our nation's future. Our 4-H projcts do an effective job of providing some hands-on experiences that can attract high ability youth to these challenging careers.We organize and present a Youth Welding Workshop each spring (April 25, 2009). This one-day training allows youth to get a quick start on arc welding or oxycetelene welding or receive advanced guidance with arc welding. Volunteers provide one-on one assistance. Lincoln Electric provides all consumables and materials for the youth to take home and practice with. Conservation TillageThe major portion of my Extension work, and virtually all my research, is in the area of conservation tillage systems. This includes no-till, strip-till, cover crops and soil compaction. I write a No-till news page for Ohio's Country Journal 10 times per year, and also write 3 or 4 Applied Engineering columns for the same journal. I'm the source of several news releases, and contribute content to stories in national farm magazines. A major effort is leading the planning for 3 events per year. The Conservation Tillage & Technology Conference is the biggest (attendance in 2009 was 894, and in 2010 reached 966). I'm the president of the group that operates the conference as a non-profit corporation under IRS Section 501(c)(5). The conference is a team effort. I have primary responsibility for arranging for about 60 speakers, and managing promotion of the conference. The Ohio No-Till Conference held in December is a one-day program with 6 to 10 speakers, and attracted 200 in 2009 and 2010. I assist the Ohio No-till Council in organizing and publicizing the program. The Council also holds a No-Till Field Day around Sept 1. I help organize the program, including about 10 speakers. In 2009 about 175 attended. Practically all my funding for travel and related expenses in 2009 is a result of funds generated by CTC and the No-till programs. CTC provided $5000, and the Ohio No-Till Council gave me about $1700 to cover the cost of a new laptop computer. Controlled TrafficIn 2009 I began assisting USDA-NRCS at both the state and national level on a standard practice for controlled traffic. I have previously written educational materials, but these are geared toward a regulation with funding to help a farmer adopt this strategy to reduce compaction in fields. In Ohio, the NRCS program can provide up to about $24,000 for a no-till farmer who aligns all heavy wheel loads to match permanent traffic lanes through corn and soybean fields.
