About ISU Extension and Outreach: Floyd County

The Floyd County Extension Council, county staff and ISU Extension and Outreach staff work together to provide research-based learning opportunities for our citizens. Through this partnership, we carry Iowa State University’s land-grant mission across Floyd County.

Our 2011 Points of Pride tells how we act on that commitment.

Floyd County programs are fulfilling that commitment:

We can anticipate trends, build relationships, and catalyze opportunities because we are part of the ongoing life of our communities, committed to healthy people, healthy environments, and healthy economies.

Extension's Mission: Healthy People. Environments. Economies.

The Floyd County Extension & Outreach office is a part of a county, state, and federal partnership bringing the resources of Iowa State University and the USDA to you. Your local County Extension & Outreach office has research-based information and educational programs to help families, communities, business people, and youth make informed decisions.

We provide information and informal educational opportunities to adults and youth on a variety of topics relating to agriculture, business and industry, families, communities, and youth.
