The University of Wisconsin-River Falls campus is one of seven UW-campuses that houses Cooperative Extension faculty. Campus-based Cooperative Extension faculty teach, conduct applied research, and develop practical educational programs - based on university knowledge and research - to respond to state and local needs. Cooperative Extension programs encompass these four areas: Agriculture and Natural Resources, Community, Natural Resources and Economic Development, Family Living and 4H Youth Development. UW-River Falls faculty are involved in two of those areas.
University of Wisconsin-Extension programs in Agriculture and Natural Resources help farmers and agribusinesses
compete in an increasingly challenging, global marketplace.
Backed by University of Wisconsin research, agriculture and natural resources educators balance farm profitability and
production of high quality food with a concern for the environment.
Extension educators work with home and community gardeners, commercial horticulture and nursery businesses, agribusinesses, and consumers of agricultural products in urban as well as rural areas.
UW-River Falls has specialists in the Agriculture and Natural Resources program with a broad range of expertise:
Human resource management for dairy producers
