Former tractor manufacturer executive Rodney Miller (most recently with McCormick Tractor USA) has joined the administrative staff of the Univ. of Georgia, Athens, Ga. He is the newly appointed Assistant to the Dean and the Director of the Office of Advancement and External Affairs.

In other news, he and Max Armstrong are developing, producing and co-hosting a new TV show, “Inside the Barn,” for RFD-TV and other networks. He says that the pilot has been produced with the plan to go into full production by mid-2011 on the project, which Miller says is “the culmination of a 5-year dream.”

He and his family recently moved to a small farm in Athens. Miller’s contact information follows:
