Cornell Cooperative Extension-Yates County: Putting knowledge to work

“The county agent’s work begins with earthy and genetic things. But his sights are raised always upward and onward. He works for better farms through better men, women, and children on farms…He knows that they, like the rest of mankind, come into the world with possibilities. They need, he hopes, only the stimulus of his sympathetic and magic touch to bring out, from their hearts, the permanent and satisfying rural civilization of which he dreams.” ~ Kenneth D. Scott A Tribute To The County Agricultural Agent
