LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 1, 2013) ― Almost one year ago today, a tornado ripped through Eastern Kentucky leaving a path of death and destruction.

 

As the shock subsided and cleanup began, a need that most never thought of before began to appear. Thankfully, Roberta Dwyer, a professor at the Gluck Equine Research Center in the UK College of Agriculture, took action. 

 

Watch the video above to discover how she teamed up with the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service to help rebuild and sustain agriculture for the farmers impacted by the devastating storms of March 2, 2012.

 

 

 

Video of this interview with Dr. Dwyer is available for media use.
