Academic Year 2017 - 2018

We have an extensive video archive of our noon seminars going back to Winter quarter 2008. The first noon seminar recorded was a talk given by Dan Drake on Monday January 07, 2008 from 12:10 pm to 1:00 pm, in Weir Room (2154 Meyer Hall). He talked about "Extension Farm Advisors: Lone Rangers or Part of a Team?" Dan Drake was a Farm Advisor and CE Associate at Department of Animal Science, University of California Davis, USA. Dan is now retired and travels extensively.

The menu at the left provides the links to these videos. In Fall of 2011, we switched to the Adobe Connect system to improve the quality of recorded seminars.
