Hannah Nordby has joined North Dakota State University Extension as the agriculture and natural resources (ANR) agent in Adams County.
She started Jan. 2 and will provide programing related to crop management, farm business management, horticulture and forestry, livestock management, natural resource management and 4-H.
Nordby looks forward to getting to know county members and producers.
“I hope those relationships and conversations will help me better address area needs,” she says.
Nordby works in the Extension office at NDSU’s Hettinger Research Extension Center.
During the summer of 2016, she was an NDSU Extension intern in the Stark-Billings County office, where she assisted in delivering 4-H and agriculture-related programs. She recently completed a six-month International Farmers Youth Exchange program in Southeast Asia, during which she experienced agriculture in Taiwan and Thailand.
Nordby initially attended NDSU before transferring to the University of Wyoming and graduating in May 2018 with a degree in agricultural education.
She is a native of Amidon, N.D., where she was active in 4-H as a youth participant and an adult volunteer. She also served as a North Dakota 4-H Ambassador and was a member of the NDSU meats judging team.
“I am extremely excited to have Hannah join NDSU Extension as our new ANR agent in Adams County,” says Jim Gray, NDSU Extension west district director. “Her academic training in agricultural education, along with her passion for 4-H and knowledge of local agricultural practices, make her a great fit for the position.”
