What Is Agriculture and Natural Resources?

Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR) is a program area of the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service. Extension ANR programs are part of the outreach program of the University Of Kentucky College Of Agriculture. We provide informal education in agricultural production and environmental stewardship.   

Departmental specialists, researchers, and county agents develop and implement ANR programs. In addition to production agriculture, a small staff of Extension Associates provides focused assistance to state and county staff on interdisciplinary and critical-need programs. These programs may deal with the interface between production agriculture and environmental stewardship. Associates also address the relationship between farmers and non-farm rural and urban citizens. Our programs make a difference in the lives of millions of Kentuckians through research-based education.

Working with our other land grant partner, Kentucky State University, we extend the resources of the University to the people in their local communities. County agents serve as the link between people in every Kentucky county and experts in the universities. They coordinate and provide educational programs for the public through meetings and workshops, field days, personal communications, and web or satellite broadcasts. Agents also provide publications, newsletters, computer programs, videos, and other educational materials.

A Note From Your Agent:

Happy Spring All!

It’s crazy to think we’re almost already a month into Spring 2024. The winter programming is coming to a close as we’re wrapping up the Farmers Market Education Program this month. We had great attendance at the Cattle Grading program on April 9th at the stockyards.  It was our first time hosting it in Fleming County. Special thanks to Jim Akers and Farmers Stockyards.

We’re looking forward to the Quality Hay Production Field Day on May 10th, 2024. More info can be found in this newsletter. We hope that you can make it!

As always, if you have any questions or suggestions for programming, please let me know.
