Strong Women/Men Program in Lafayette County

Beginning in their mid-forties, women lose 1/4 to 1/3 pound of muscle per year and gain that much—or more—in fat. Lafayette County ranks 11th highest for diabetes in the state. The obesity rate is slightly higher than the state average.
With continued interest in low/no cost exercise programs for county residents. Lafayette County continues its Get Fit: Strong Women and Walk Across Arkansas exercise programs.

Increasing Farm Profitability in Lafayette County

Increasing profitability of cotton, rice, corn, soybean, wheat and cattle producers and reducing input costs are of importance.
Identifying and solving production issues is a main task handled by our office. From the needs of the soil to the needs of the crop, educational resources are available.
Various demonstrations and trials are conducted in our county to identify ways to tackle problems that occur within local producers farms.

Other agricultural services

We also help the community with horticulture and gardening, small flock, and other small animal questions.
