Extension educator extending reach

University of Nebraska extension educator Beth Janning left her
position at the Adam County extension office to work with the
Raising Nebraska interactive exhibit located at the Nebraska State
Fairgrounds in Grand Island.

GRAND ISLAND — Growing up on a farm, Beth Janning always knew she loved animals.

The family had dairy cattle and hogs in addition to growing row crops.

So when she left her home near Albion, studying animal genetics at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln just made sense.

She furthered her education with a master’s degree in animal breeding and genetics from the University of Missouri-Columbia.

After deciding to move closer to home, Janning ended up taking a job as an extension educator in Adams County.

“I didn’t know that I wanted to do extension when I went into it,” Janning said.
