About ISU Extension and Outreach: Sioux County

The Sioux 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 Sioux County.

Sioux 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 Idea" born in Sioux County

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. A commemorative plaque honoring the "birthplace of an idea" was placed on display in Hull, Iowa on August 1, 2007, during a celebration recognizing the 150th birthday of Iowa State University.
