Welcome to our Website!

Our office is picking up the pace for a successful year ahead. We are busy in all areas of Extension with new programs being planned and existing programs being rebooted for the new year.

Our job here at the Lincoln County Office of the Cooperative Extension Service is to provide the people of Lincoln County with practical, research-based knowledge and programs to improve their quality of life in the areas of Agriculture, Home Economics and Nutrition Education. This research based knowledge is filtered to our office through New Mexico State University by specialists in the fields described above.

One of our most important jobs is to mentor and guide the youth of this county by offering a quality 4-H Youth Program to all youth in Lincoln County. The 4-H year is just getting started and we are excited at the possibilities for our youth members. Our Senior group just returned from a Leadership weekend and we can't wait for them to share what they learned with their clubs. Home Ec School is coming up as well as an educational camp for our Novice and Junior members. Check the 4-H Newsletter for information on the upcoming programs. Enrollment for 4-H is open now. Before you know it, it will be fair time.

Marsha Palmer, our Home Economist/ 4-H Agent and Program Director is working with 4-H clubs in the areas of Home Economics and skills. She is kicking off a new walking program in the county in February and Diabetes programs are in the works as well. Marsha is also available to the public to help with information on Sewing, Canning, Cooking, Nutrition and Health.

Brenda Weatherford, our Nutrition Educator, is busy working with the children in our County Schools and Boys and Girls Club, teaching them options for snacking and introducing them to foods they are not familiar with.

Audra Lyon, our Agriculture Agent and 4-H Agent, is busy with 4-H groups in the areas of Livestock, Agriculture, Leadership, Shooting Sports and more. Audra is also available to the public to help with information on crops, soil, insects and livestock.
