The core values of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Agriculture and Natural Resources reflect our commitment to developing and disseminating quality, relevant, research-based educational programs for the people of Iowa and beyond.
Agriculture is important to Iowa. We grow crops and raise livestock to feed our nation and beyond. Much of Iowa’s economy thrives on our rich agricultural heritage and ANR Extension and Outreach plays an important role in providing research-based information and resources to educate Iowa’s farmers, producers and agribusinesses. Our programs impact all Iowans, whether they live in a rural or urban area, and have been developed to improve our quality of life.
