SDSU West River Research & Extension History

Proud Past, Promising Future

Vast prairies, wooded hills, and diverse peoples make western South Dakota special! For more than 100 years, South Dakota State University, independently and in partnership with many individuals and organizations, has brought agriculture-related new ideas and approaches, essential research, and educational programming to western South Dakotans to assist them as they strive to improve and sustain their quality of life and their land.
