The University of Wyoming Extension has two general initiative areas which encompass our work in Agriculture and Natural Resources. The initiative areas are:
- Rangeland (Range)
- Agriculture and Horticulture (Ag & Hort)
Together, these initiatives encompass a tremendous diversity of program areas.
For the homeowner, we field questions in horticulture and home landscapes. For those involved in production agriculture, our emphasis is generally in forage-based beef cattle production systems, which includes:
- Animal husbandry
- Production technology
- Management of animal and financial resources
We are also quite interested in natural resource management as it pertains to production agriculture. In that respect, we have a lot of expertise in range management and monitoring, and in natural resource issue work.
