Extension is the outreach component of our department. From working closely with individual farms in the Kentucky Farm Business Management program; to providing analysis to policy makers at the state, national, and global levels; to providing assistance for decision makers in communities, agribusinesses, and farms; Agricultural Economics specialists and staff deliver timely and accurate economic analysis in a variety of formats. In addition to working closely with county Extension educators to meet local needs, many Agricultural Economics Extension faculty hold classroom teaching appointments where they use their Extension experiences to bring economic principles to life for our students.
