Dr. Robert Whitson, Vice President for Agriculture at Oklahoma State University, will visit Texas County September 7-9. During his three days in the area, he will meet with a variety of groups to share his vision for agriculture in the High Plains.

Sponsored by the Texas County Ag Supporters Committee chaired by Roy Ehly, the visit provides Whitson an opportunity to learn about agricultural concerns in the area.

Dr. Whitson will spend time at OPSU, meeting with administrators and faculty, lecturing animal science students, and meeting with Goodwell agricultural and community leaders. The following two days will be spent meeting with various groups including the Guymon Chamber of Commerce, the Kiwanis Club, Guymon High School students, Guymon Toastmasters, and the Guymon Rotary Club.

Jess Nelson will moderate a round table discussion with Texas County agriculture leaders, when representatives from local beef, wheat, pork, sunflower, cotton, and grape industries will meet with him. The trip wraps up with a media conference at the Western Townsman Inn Reunion Room at 1:00 p.m. All interested media are welcome to attend.
