Instead of offering an in-person event, Wurdack will go virtual this year, along with the rest of the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources (CAFNR) Agriculture Research Centers. Wurdack will offer a handful of online prerecorded presentations that be available via the Center's website and Facebook page. The Virtual field day will be held Friday, Oct. 2.

(Cook Station) The University of Missouri’s proposed restructuring of their agricultural experimental farms will result in four locations shifting from the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources to the University of Missouri Extension.

College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources Dean Doctor Christopher Daubert says this change will result in the Wurdack Research Center Farm at Cook Station in southern Crawford County, plus three other research centers in the state to become Extension education centers.

Despite the change, Daubert says most projects will continue like normal at each facility.

After the restructuring, the College of Ag, Food and Natural Resources division will operate four clusters of research stations located in Columbia, Mount Vernon, Novelty and Portageville.
