Since I work in an Extension office and am vividly aware of the poor marketing many Extensions do...I thought I would give you all a link to finding your local office. I've seen where some of you post to someone who is asking a question to get with their extension office but sometimes that's easier said than done. Go to CSREES and click on your state. This will take you to your land grant university web site that will, in turn, allow you to click on your county which should take you to your local office. What can they do for you there? Well, it depends on the state initiatives...but most places will have an ag agent/educator or two who can set you up with publications, classes or information about raising whatever livestock you have in mind. For those of you new to Extension, every state has a land grant university and part of the land grant was that they should make the results of research available to those outside the university in their state. This is the Cooperative Extension system. State, local and federal funding makes it possible (your taxpayer dollar at work, friends!). It's more than just Ag...it's gardening, foods/nutrition, personal finance, and 4-H, too. Check it out. I'd also be curious to know what you think of your local Extension office.
