My name is Alana Voss and I began working as your Extension Agriculture Educator in October 2018. I grew up in the agriculture community in southern Juneau County on my family’s farm and was very active in 4-H, FFA, and county, state and district fairs. After graduating from High School, I went to UW-Platteville for a double major and double emphasis in agriculture. After graduation at UW-Platteville, I was hired into Extension in December 2016 as the Agriculture Educator for Adams and Juneau Counties and transitioned to my current role in 2018. This year consisted of learning more about Sauk County from behind the scenes and I am now looking to hear the voices and concerns of the agriculture community. With harvest coming to an end, I would appreciate your assistance in determining the educational interests of producers in this county through a needs assessment survey. Although Sauk County is not new to me, it would be very beneficial for you and me and will help me understand how I can better build an Extension program for your needs.
Please take a few minutes to complete the survey online through the QR code below or by following this link: http://bit.ly/2trtIX1SaukCoAgNeedsAssessment. It can also be accessed along with other great resources and upcoming programming information through the Extension Sauk County website: https://sauk.extension.wisc.edu/. We would suggest completing the survey online as it only takes 15 minutes and is quicker than completing the paper copy version. However, if you would prefer to have a paper copy, please call the Extension Sauk County office. We will gladly mail you a copy and a pre-addressed, postage-paid envelope to mail the survey back to the Extension office. **Please note that all responses to this survey will be kept confidential and will only be used to help plan future programming.** Please complete the needs assessment survey by February 28, 2020. If you complete the survey by February 28th you will be entered into a drawing for one of four gift cards to Blain’s Farm & Fleet as a thank you from our office.
The information you provide on this assessment is important and helps guide the information and programs that you will see coming out of the Extension Sauk County office as well as the surrounding areas. By completing the Agriculture Needs Assessment, I will be better able to serve your needs. The information that you provide also helps direct the other Agriculture Educators future programming for multi-county events as well.
Thank you in advance for providing valuable insight by completing the Agriculture Needs Assessment. I look forward to working with all of you as your Extension Agriculture Educator; please contact me if you have any questions, or would like to make further comments or suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608-355-3250.
