(01/08/20) Baton Rouge, La. — The LSU AgCenter has named Glen Gentry director of its Central Research Station in Baton Rouge.
Gentry, an LSU graduate and animal scientist who has been with the AgCenter for 28 years, was appointed to the position Jan. 1. He replaces Pat Bollich, who is retiring.
Gentry will continue to serve as coordinator of the AgCenter Bob R. Jones-Idlewild Research Station in Clinton, a role he has held for the past several years.
Located a few miles south of the LSU campus, the Central Research Station is made up of about 3,000 acres of farmland, pastures and greenhouses where faculty and students conduct crop and livestock research.
“I look forward to the opportunity to join the Central Research Station staff in its mission to support the research and teaching efforts of campus faculty,” Gentry said. “This station absolutely plays a vital role for these departments, and I consider myself very fortunate to be able to contribute to this process.”
