Welcome to the Exchange, on Siouxland Public Media, I’m Mary Hartnett.  

Did you know some of our local ISU Extension and Outreach county offices have been here serving Iowans for over 100 years? In 1903, a group of Sioux County farmers cooperated with Iowa State University to establish the "extension idea" - taking the knowledge and research of our land-grant college to the people. Today Iowa State University Extension and Outreach serves as a 99-county campus providing education and partnerships designed to solve today’s problems and prepare for the future.

Lawmakers have been debating a bill that would essentially dismantle the organization.  Bill Stowe is the CEO of the Des Moines Water Works.
