Eric Eberly is “VESA Spotlight” Award Winner for May

Farm Business Management Update, August - September 2008

Eric Eberly, ANR Extension agent, Southern Piedmont AREC, was the “In the VESA Spotlight” award winner for May. He was honored for being a dedicated VCE employee for many years and for his activities in several professional associations. He was a major factor in successfully educating producers regarding risk-management options after Congress eliminated the tobacco quota. Eberly has repeatedly been recognized for his service to professional organizations – three times by Epsilon Sigma Phi for team and individual work as well as four times by the Virginia Association of Agriculture Extension Agents, most notably with the Distinguished Service Award for his work in Farm Business Management. He specializes in crop and livestock budgets and works tirelessly for the producers so they may remain or become profitable.
