How are you helping MU A&E Extension reach our #2xAg2030 goal?

Pat Miller was featured on the cover of Brangus Cattle magazine when she was 3 years old.

Sifting through lots of information to give producers timely, research-based help when they need it. My weekly extension ag email is a key component of this.

What is something your teammates may not know about you?

About 33 years ago I had an indirect hit from lightning. I was on the phone at our church when lightning hit the steeple. A little boy saw me get knocked across the room. I don’t remember much about being struck by the lightning. I just remember waking up across the room with lots of people around me asking if I was OK. I didn’t answer them right away because I didn’t know.

The second fact came from a few years ago when I found that elderberry juice drastically helps with my fibromyalgia-like symptoms.

This last fact is a little more fun. When I was 3 years old, I was a cover girl on the Brangus cattle magazine.
