The Farm Science Review got its new manager in the Nick of time.
Nick Zachrich begins his new position Sept.12, just days shy of when the 2016 show will open its gates.
One of the nation’s premier agricultural trade and education shows, the Farm Science Review is an annual three-day event sponsored by the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University.
Zachrich is a six-year employee of the Review, having served as site manager since 2010.
“Nick possesses a unique combination of education and experience that has prepared him well for this important role within the college,” said Roger Rennekamp, director of Ohio State University Extension, the outreach arm of the college. “Our goal is to continually improve the visitor experience while showcasing cutting-edge innovations and best practices of modern agriculture. Nick has the ability to take what he learns on a day-to-day basis and use that information to craft innovations that will help us achieve these goals.”
As manager, Zachrich will oversee the Review and other events that take place at the college’s Molly Caren Agricultural Center near London, Ohio.
“I look forward to serving our agricultural industry in the region,” Zachrich said. “Technological advancements in agriculture are more exciting now than ever. I plan to continue to build on the reputation that Farm Science Review has to demonstrate and display the latest in agriculture.”
Zachrich joins Matt Sullivan, who began his role as superintendent of the Molly Caren center this summer. Sullivan was previously assistant manager of the Review.
Now in its 54th year, the Review is set to welcome more than 110,000 visitors Sept. 20-22. There will be demonstrations, more than 100 educational presentations and more than 600 exhibitors. Tickets are $10 at the gate and $7 in advance from agribusinesses and county offices of OSU Extension.
