Lauderdale County Extension Agent
Inducted November 13, 2008
During the years he worked for the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, Ronnie Lane touched the lives of countless 4-H’ers. He is a man of great character and a source of encouragement to 4-H’ers. He is giving of his time, and always helping in any way he can.
Former 4-H’ers recall that Lane spent many nights and weekends working with 4-H; he was always present at shows and always supportive.
He encouraged families to help 4-H’ers by becoming involved in market lamb and breeding sheep projects. He spent countless hours giving advice, answering questions, and being a resource for families.
Lane’s support of youth through their 4-H careers and into adulthood has influenced at least one to follow in his footsteps, becoming a county Extension agent.
Retired from Lauderdale County Extension, he continues to breed Simmental and Angus cattle on his farm in Florence.
