- A Message From The SDSU Foundation
A third-party marketing firm surveyed 400 crop and livestock producers, selected at random from the more than 10,000 throughout the state. The SDSU Extension Benchmark Survey discovered that not only is SDSU Extension meeting the land-grant mission, but changes made to the delivery system through the reorganization were in-line with the evolving needs of South Dakota’s agriculture producers.
Not short and sweet, the producers questioned for this survey spent about 20 minutes on the phone discussing what they thought of SDSU Extension, where they go for information to improve their operations and ways SDSU Extension can better meet their needs.
