About the Agricultural Extension Service

Sherman County's Extension Service delivers objective, research-based, non-formal education to help North Central Oregonians solve problems, develop leadership, and manage resources wisely. The Extension is here for anyone looking for research-based, practical information concerning nutrition, food safety, ag money management, livestock, and agriculture.

UPDATE -  OSU Sherman County Extension Office is Open

Toward the end of June 2020, the OSU Sherman County Extension office was approved to go into OSU Extension Phase 2/modified operations.  This status depends on Sherman County remaining in Oregon phase 2 and the Extension Office staying in contact with OSU Extension regarding current conditions.

OSU is carefully developing principles and indicators to monitor the status of COVID-19 and decide the level of onsite activity at OSU locations. OSU emphasizes that the health of students, faculty, staff and community members remains its top priority as navigate the pandemic.

Modified operations means the Extension Office is now open for regular business.

However…modified operations does not mean business as usual.

OSU is encouraging staff to use a low-density (not very many people around), mixed-modality (work remotely as much as possible, minimize in-person activities) work approach during these modified operations.  Volunteers are encouraged to continue working remotely.

OSU requires faculty, staff, students and visitors at OSU locations to use face coverings when in enclosed and common areas, and outdoors where physical distancing is not easily maintained.

Face coverings, 6’ physical distancing, proper handwashing, use of hand sanitizers, and extra cleaning procedures will be in place at Oregon Extension offices. Ongoing office status is subject to executive orders, local conditions and OSU guidelines.

To that end, Oregon State University's Extension Service staff oversee Sherman County 4-H programs and collaborate with the Sherman County Fair Board to produce the annual Sherman County Fair and Rodeo. The Extension Service offices are located at the Sherman Station agricultural research lab in Moro, which is managed by OSU Extension’s Columbia Basin Agricultural Research Center in Adams. Field research in Moro "emphasizes the production of wheat and rotational crops such as barley, legumes, and canola."

The Sherman County Extension Office is here to serve the gardening, farming, and agricultural needs of all who have come to settle in this "Land Between the Rivers" and "Land of Wheat." Over time, Sherman County has become the third largest wheat-producing county with — thanks to it also being the only naturally unforested county — the largest till-area percentage in all of Oregon.
