With farmers struggling, can we afford cuts to Extension?
High Plains Journal
In the last 10 years, the K-State Research and Extension budget has been slashed 16 percent, from $55.1 million to $46.4 million. That budget includes all county Extension offices, 4-H programs, area Extension and Research programs and all the work on campus. Reduced allocations from the Kansas Legislature are largely to blame for the budget cuts. Federal funds also are drying up.
