Marissa Leier has joined the North Dakota State University Extension Service in Morton County as agriculture and natural resources Extension agent.
Leier will lead Extension programs in horticulture, agronomy and cropping systems, livestock, farm business management and crop marketing, community economic development and leadership and 4-H youth development.
“When I started my college career, I knew that I wanted to stay involved with agriculture,” Leier said. “I look forward to making a positive impact on agriculture in Morton County.”
Leier started on Sept. 18. She most recently spent a year as Extension agent-in-training in Oliver County. While a student at NDSU, she spent two summers working as a veterinary assistant at Northern Veterinary Service Inc. in Linton. Leier was the North Dakota State Dairy Princess from June 2012 to June 2013.
Leier graduated from NDSU in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in animal science.
“Marissa’s knowledge of livestock and dairy systems, along with her passion and knowledge of 4-H, make her a great fit for this role,” said Jim Gray, NDSU Extension’s southwest district director.
