K-State Research and Extension is all about improving lives, livelihoods and communities. To do that, the organization is constantly looking for ways to do so more efficiently and effectively. One approach that’s had widespread success over the last several years has been combining individual county offices into multi-county districts, which allows for specialization, sustainability and other advantages. On July 1, Kansas added two more extension districts, bringing the number to 20. Finney and Scott Counties formed the West Plains District, and Dickinson and Marion County created the Chisholm Trail District.

Guest for this episode:

Jim Lindquist is the associate director for field operations with K-State Research and Extension. He has held numerous positions in his 40+ years as a leader in extension.
