Natural Resources Extension Program
The Extension Livestock Environment program’s goal is to provide education, technical assistance, and applied research answers to all stakeholders in Montana’s livestock industry. This program provides ongoing outreach on animal waste and nutrient management, regulatory compliance, non-point source pollution, air emissions, and recommended environmental best management practices.
The program is effective through collaborative programming with key organizations and agencies including the Department of Environmental Quality, Department of Natural Resources and Conservation, Montana Association of Conservation Districts, Natural Resource Conservation Services — USDA, Farm Services Agency — USDA, and other stakeholders.
Technical assistance is provided as requested through the county delivery system, assorted direct correspondence, and site visits. For further information browse this website, contact your local county agent, or follow the contacts to the right. Additional related topics and contacts can be found on the Range Extension Program page, Forage Extension Program page or Extension Water Quality Program page.
We would like to thank Gene Surber for 30 plus years service in the interest of Montana producers and for his leadership in natural resource and conservation programming at home and nationwide.
