    Albert: It was great to see you at Farm Bureau Legislative Dinner last week. I should add, that is the first time ever remember an LU Dean or Administrator attending that event. GREAT JOB! . I would like to take you to lunch sometime and catch up. If your Secretary could call me I would love to work out a time to visit.

    Welcome to Missouri! You will do a great job! Dave Baker, Assistant Dean Emeritus, University of Missouri, Ag & Natural Resource Extension
