Hello everyone! My name is Connor Biehler and I am the new Beef Extension Educator with adult education responsibilities for Cass County and 14 other counties in southeast Nebraska. I am a native of south-central Illinois where I developed a passion for agriculture through my family’s operation as well as 4-H beef projects. My degrees include an Associates of Science in agriculture from Lake Land College, Bachelor of Science in animal science from Oklahoma State University, and Master of Science with a focus in cow/calf and sire nutrition from University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Prior to pursuing my master’s, I worked as a feed salesman in Oklahoma.

I can tell many of you are excited to get outside! Let’s start with the lawn.
