Montana State University Extension is an agency that provides unbiased, research based information to the public free of charge. The Liberty County MSU Extension Office provides information for four main areas: Family and Consumer Science, Agriculture, Youth Development and Community and Economic Development.

Agriculture programs have been and still continue to be a dominant feature of MSU Extension. Various classes, seminars, and individual consults are offered throughout the year on small grains, horticulture and livestock issues.  Pesticide applicator’s tests for acquiring an applicator’s license are administered through the extension office. Classes are available through the extension office for applicators to keep their license current.

The Family and Consumer Science area provides information, seminars, and individual consultations on all issues relating to the family such as: family finances, food and nutrition, parenting skills, housing, clothing and textiles.

Youth Development is concentrated in two programs:

  • School enrichment programs which provide educational seminars to area schools relating to family and consumer science.
  • The 4-H program. This is the major youth development program that MSU Extension provides. Liberty County youth ages 5 through 18 can participate in clubs throughout the county. The 4-H club work, along with individual project work, focuses on developing life skills.

The Liberty County Extension office has an Advisory Board which meets twice a year.  Topics of concern include community and economic development.

Montana State University has a number of informative MontGuides which are available at the Liberty County Extension office at no cost. These publications are also available online through the MSU publications store.
