In 1903 a group of Iowa farmers cooperated with Iowa State to establish the "extension idea" - taking the land-grant college to the people. Today Iowa State University Extension looks forward to being part of a better future for all Iowans in the next 100 years. The 2012 Webster Co. Extension Stakeholder Report shares a few examples of ISU Extension at work in Webster County.
