Champaign County Extension welcomes our new ANR Educator, Grant Davis.
My name is Grant Davis and I wanted to introduce myself as the new Agriculture and Natural Resources Educator with OSU Extension in Champaign County. I grew up outside of Christiansburg, just over the county line in Miami County. My wife Stephanie and I still reside in this area, along with our three daughters, Brynn (age 7), Maren (age 3), and Reagan (age 2). I am a graduate of Ohio State in Agriculture Education and have a Graduate Certificate in Agronomy from Iowa State. I started my career working for a locally owned ag retailer. I then went on to be a research assistant for Monsanto helping develop new corn products for around 5 years. I then moved on to become a field agronomist with Integrated Ag Services for 8 years. During my time at Integrated Ag, I earned my Certified Crop Advisor designation, and became even more familiar with Champaign County working with various farmer-customers in the area. When not working, I enjoy operating my own farm raising beef cattle, hay, and grain crops. While most of my career experience comes from the field crop side of things, I am looking forward to the variety of the agriculture industry that this position will provide.
Grant can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or on his office phone at 937-772-6022.
