Course teaches ag issues to teachers


COSHOCTON, Ohio — A continuing education course offered this June in Coshocton County is just the thing for people interested in contemporary agricultural issues such as alternative energy production, medicine and nutrition, biosecurity and animal welfare.

The course features several Ohio State faculty members who will discuss their research, and participants who successfully complete the course will earn one hour of continuing education credit from Muskingum College.


The course fee is $150. Anyone interested in more information or enrolling may contact Marissa Mullett, Ohio State University Extension educator in Coshocton County, at or 740-622-2265.
