Welcome to Carter County
The Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service has been helping Oklahomans improve their lives since 1914. By taking the knowledge gained from scientific research at Oklahoma State University and other land-grant colleges to the people of Oklahoma, Extension has worked to increase agricultural productivity and profitability; promote better family relationships, nutrition, and health; provide better community services; and encourage the development of our youth.
OSU County Extension offices throughout the state put citizens in touch with research-based information from Oklahoma State University and the entire land-grant university system. This three-way county, state, and federal partnership has resulted in an effective and flexible organization -- one that is designed to meet the changing needs of the state's citizens while continuing to fulfill its historic role in improving the quality of life for all of the people of the state.
In the 21st century, priority areas for Cooperative Extension efforts include:
preserving and enhancing the positive aspects of rural and urban community life
increasing human potential by providing educational opportunities
protecting and sustaining the environment
The Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service, a part of OSU's Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, is proudly continuing its tradition of bringing the University to you.
