What is Extension?

All universities engage in research and teaching, but land-grant universities like Montana State University have a third critical mission - Extension. Extension means reaching out and "extending" resources by assisting in solving public needs with university resources through non-formal, non-credit programs.
Montana State University Extension is an educational resource dedicated to improving the quality of people's lives by providing research-based knowledge to strengthen the social, economic and environmental well-being of families, communities, and agricultural enterprises.
MSU Extension offers university resources for all Montanans to explore, even if they never set foot on campus. We provide access to useful information and expert knowledge via workshops, demonstrations, community meetings, publications, videos and the Web. Extension links a network of MSU faculty topic specialists on the MSU-Bozeman campus and our Wheatland County agent to the communities in our county.
Wheatland County Extension agent, Mandie Reed, is proud to provide services in the following areas:

  • 4-H and Youth Development
  • Agriculture and Horticulture
  • Natural Resources
  • Community and Economic Development
