Straw Bales

County Agriculture and Natural Resource Agents serve as the link between people in Kentucky counties andexperts at the universities. They provide informal education in any area related to agriculture or natural resources depending on the county needs. They coordinate and provide formal educational programs for the public through meetings, workshops, field days, personal communications, and web or satellite broadcasts. Agents also provide educational materials such as publications, newsletters, computer programs, and videos. All Extension ANR programs are part of the outreach program of the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture. County agents develop and implement these ANR programs in their counties. Extension programs make a difference in the lives of millions of Kentuckians through research-based education. Stop by the office for more information.
