Recent staff departures, reassignments and announced retirements have changed the make-up of the Agricultural Division's consulting teams.
Most of you are aware that Fred Schmedt has announced he will retire at the end of 2005; his team manager position has already been filled to avoid additional reassignments later in the year. Current teams are shown in Table 1, and those who have changed are highlighted in orange.
There also are open positions. In addition, David Annis, who was a discipline assistant, is now a suburban specialist with the NF-3 team and will be assisting many of our cooperators who live and/or work in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area and own smaller farms and ranches.
