Educating the public on production practices

Since its inception in 1914, the Cooperative Extension Service has been instrumental in addressing the needs of communities across the country through non-formal educational outreach programs and materials. In 1906, county agents, or extension educators, were first hired to help build strong communities and assist them in their questions. This program aided citizens through both World Wars and the 'Farm Crisis' of the 1980s and 90s. Today, the Cooperative Extension Service is a proactive, responsive and collaborative organization committed to the growth and development of people through life long learning.

Through the decades, the public has learned to trust and count on the unbiased and informative advice of local county extension agents. In an age where consumers are questioning the modern production methods of farmers and ranchers, the South Dakota State University Cooperative Extension Service has recognized the growing need to bridge the gap and present correct information for consumers to digest.
