Born and raised in the small town of Walsh, Colo., managing farmland while dealing with dry conditions is nothing new to Lawrence Bohl.

A bachelor’s degree from Oklahoma Panhandle State University (OPSU), followed by a master’s degree from OSU, was just the beginning of a long-lasting relationship Bohl had with both institutions.

“Being from this part of the country, I already had a great appreciation for the work being done at both schools,” Bohl said. “Then, going to work for the research center was just a perfect match.”

After years of managing farms for Hitch Enterprises and OPSU, Bohl was hired to be the station superintendent by OPREC in 1994. Nearly 20 years and many, many research experiments later, Bohl retired in the spring of 2013.

“I decided when I got to be 65, it’d be a good birthday present,” he said. “However, I’m busier now than when I was working.”

Bohl is nothing if not proud of the work being done at the research center.

“Our research station is very important,” Bohl said. “Texas County is the largest ag money-maker in the state when you add cattle, irrigation crops and swine. I’m glad I got to be a part of it for so many years.”
