           The new Post Office recently completed at Lancaster
was built to accomodutte the work of the County Agent's Office.
This sp:ace was offered to the Extension Service by the Postal
Department.  The Agricultural Committee. ufter some deliberation
decided to retain the office in its oresent loc tion. It was
felt that the office could render better service in the central
location it now has.
           The Agent during the year has cooperated to the full-
est possible extent vith Federl Agencies working in the County.
These were mainly Agricultural Conservation, Rural Electrification,
Soil Conservation Service, Farm Security and to some extent the
Emergency Agencies. The only connection with any of these
agencies has been to aid in the educational work wherever this
fitted into the County Agricultural Program. The Agent served
as Secretary for the County Agricultural Conservation Committee
and the cooperation between them, and this office, has been
especially close and mutually helpful.
                       SEED CERTIFICATION
           There are several growers of purebred oats and barley
in Grant County. This seed is put out by the University Exper-
iment Station and produced for increase by these growers. The
Agent takes care of the field inspection and certification for
these men. The certification and inspection of hybrid seed corn
grown in the County is carried on separately by men hired by
the College.
