"To provide information and education, and encourage the application of research-based knowledge in response to local, state, and national issues affecting individuals, youth, families, dairy, livestock/agricultural enterprises, and communities of Colorado."
The Extension office provides assistance and programs for citizens in these areas:
- 4-H Youth Programs
- Food Nutrition
As the name implies, it is an extension of Colorado State University.
Weld County pays for half of the Extension program including building and office expenses, program costs and mileage. The balance is Colorado State University funds from federal programs and the state legislature.
Weld County 4-H Endowment
To maintain Weld County’s important agricultural economy, young people need to develop skills in production agriculture and leadership. The 4-H program has been part of Weld County for generations and has helped hundreds of young people grow into strong leaders. Our goal is to raise $2 million to place in an endowment to guarantee future 4-H programming for Weld County youth. Donate today and help ensure that valuable 4-H programming is made available to all Weld County youth.
