Delivering the Southern University Cooperative Extension’s Agricultural and Natural Resources (ANR) mission to small scale producers is an evolving undertaking. ANR, in collaboration with governmental and non-profit organizations, prepare traditionally unserved and underserved, ranchers, women, veterans and small farmers to produce and compete in a changing agricultural industry.

The ANR specialists, agents, staff and advisors are committed to linking farmers to opportunities, providing trusted information and assessing community needs. We work together to play a role in building communities and leading the fight to address statewide challenges.


The goal of the ANR program is to deliver valuable instructional programs to Louisiana producers. These programs allow farmers to maintain sustainable businesses, profitable farms and improved livelihoods. The ANR program consists of:

  • ANR
  • Sustainable Urban Agriculture
    • Demonstration Camp
    • Challenge Camp
  • Small Farms Institute
    • Small Farms Academy
    • Wisteria Alliance – Women in Agriculture Program
  • Livestock Program
    • Livestock Show
  • Plant & Soil Sciences
  • CLIMATE (Cultivating Leadership Innovative Motivation through Agriculture Talent and Education)

These programs reach citizens throughout the 64 parishes of Louisiana. Agricultural and Natural Resources’ responsibility to agriculture makes a difference in the lives of all Louisianians.
