2017 Randolph County Program Impact Report

Approved: January 27, 2018

I. Executive Summary

In 2017, the Randolph County Extension team addressed the issues of agricultural profitability, urban and community agriculture, volunteerism, conservation and environmental sustainability, health nutrition and wellness, and youth development. This is evident from the 46,390 face-to-face and 532,340 non-face-to-face contacts made in 2017. The Randolph County Extension team was directly involved in helping 387 people obtain certification or re-certification training. A total of $28,925 was obtained through in-kind donations, sponsorships, grants, and fees to support programming. A total of 2,685 volunteers from all program areas gave 29,972 hours of service valued at approximately $723,524. Cooperative Extension made significant impacts in all areas of the plan of work. Below are some of the major program accomplishments.

Agriculture:
* Voluntary Agricultural District enrollment is up to 19,423 acres on 142 farms.
* An Architect has been hired to design the Randolph County Agricultural Center.
* Over 3,496 livestock and crop producers have benefited from Extension recommendations related to best management practices, resulting in $4,760,832 in net income gains.
* The Multi-County Field Crops program attracted just under 100 field crop producers, which reported a total economic impact of $230,000.
* Ninety producers participated in fecal egg counting workshops, which led to a decrease in animals lost by producers who utilized these resources and attending these trainings.
* Over 100 youth participated in the youth livestock program, which provided them with an opportunity to learn about care of their animals, showmanship, judging, and tools for success.
* Over 183 people improved their knowledge around horticulture related topics, yielding a cost savings for county citizens of over $25,900.
* Ninety-two childcare professionals in nine childcare centers participated in a four-part training course, where over 400 children were educated about the importance of fresh vegetables and the ease in which these vegetables can be produced.

4-H Youth Development:
* In 2017, 9,910 young people participated in a variety of 4-H programs including: 4-H clubs, school enrichment, special interest workshops, and camping.
* Sixty-Four first graders had six agriculture related lessons, and went on an educational field trip to NC A&T Discover Ag Farm to experience what they learned first hand. Participants gained knowledge about agriculture in Randolph County and in North Carolina. More specifically they learned about seeds, apples, vegetables, dairy cattle, beef cattle and poultry.
* Over 70 classes were offered through the 4-H Agri-ventures and More Summer Program. Nine hundred thirty-five youth participated in the classes and topics included everything from livestock, gardening, canning, bread making, camping, fire safety, hunter safety, electrical projects and safety, STEM, Adulting 101, woodworking, and field crops.
* Thirteen 4-H community clubs provided 144 youth with opportunities to build skills in decision-making, communication, teamwork, and resource management.

II. County Background

Randolph County, the 11th largest county in North Carolina, is located in the geographic center of the State. Although Randolph County is still considered a rural county, it has the 19th highest population in the state. Urban sprawl from High Point and Greensboro has found its way into Randolph County. There are nine municipalities in the County: Asheboro, Archdale, Franklinville, Liberty, Ramseur, Randleman, Trinity, Seagrove, and Staley. All have seen growth.

Randolph County covers 790 square miles. The County is strategically located 90 miles from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the west; 200 miles from the Atlantic Ocean to the east; 80 miles north of the South Carolina state line; and 75 miles south of the Virginia state line. Asheboro, the county seat, is situated between North Carolina's state capital, Raleigh, and its largest city, Charlotte - just 70 miles from both cities. Randolph County is home to the Uwharrie Mountains. Known as the Uwharrie Reservation when it was purchased by the federal government in 1931, and declared a national forest by John F. Kennedy in 1961, it is one of four national forests in the state and the only one in the Piedmont. Randolph County is home to the North Carolina State Zoological Park, the nation's largest natural-habitat zoo with 500 acres of exhibits and over 1,000 animals. Also located in Randolph County are the Richard Petty Museum, (celebrating NASCAR's all-time career victory leader), The NC Pottery Center and the Seagrove area potteries, which enjoy an international reputation for exceptional hand thrown pottery.
Randolph County is also proud to be the home of Victory Junction, founded by NASCAR's famed Petty family.

The 2010 Census indicates that the population of Randolph County is 141,752. Asheboro is the largest city and County seat with a population of slightly over 25,000. Less than 20% of our county’s residents live in incorporated towns. The County has about 181 residents per square mile, which reflects its generally rural nature.

According to the 2010 Census the racial/ethnic composition of Randolph County is: 115,244 white, 14,742 Hispanic/Latino, 5,946 African American, 1,418 Asian and 2,410 other multi-race.

The Cooperative Extension in Randolph County conducted an environmental scan in 2007. Two hundred and fifty surveys were mailed citizens asking their input to identify major issues and concerns. Over 100 of these surveys were returned. In addition, focus groups were held across the County to gather additional data. Each group identified issues and then through a consensus processes agreed on the top issues and concerns. Five top issues emerged from both the survey and the focus groups. These issues were:
1) Farmland/green space preservation
2) Agricultural profitability
3) Health, Nutrition and Wellness
4) Youth Programming and Families at Risk
5) Life Stages

Each year advisory members provide input and feedback about what the needs/issues are in their community. Our Advisory Leaders at all levels have continued to identify these issues as priorities. Extension's role in addressing these issues is one of education and community involvement.

The Cooperative Extension manages the Voluntary and Enhanced Voluntary Agricultural District programs. A Farmland Preservation and Protection Plan was put into place in 2011. Activities are now being undertaken to meet the goals and objectives of the plan. Two agricultural forums are planned to bring together farmers, agricultural agencies and agricultural teachers in an effort to better coordinate agricultural activities and programs. Other activities will promote conservation and best management practices to protect the environment.

Agricultural profitability has always been an important component of Extension programming in Randolph County. Agriculture and agribusiness continues to be one of the largest, if not the largest industries in Randolph County. Over 500 million dollars are generated annually making Randolph County one the top in the State in agricultural income. There are over 1,500 farms in the Randolph County with over 147,000 acres of land. The bankruptcy of the poultry integrator, Townsend, has been devastating to many farmers in the County. Seventy-two farms have been affected. Many of these poultry growers are being picked up by other poultry companies, but many are still not in operation. According to NC Department of Agriculture, in 2015, Randolph County ranked first in the state in beef cows, second in the state in dairy cows, second in all cattle, and sixth in broiler production, as well as first in goats and in the top ten in horses. There are an increasing number of small-scale vegetable and specialty farms. Cooperative Extension agents will continue to offer educational workshops in best management practices and the latest research based information. Master Gardeners have been and will continue to be trained and utilized to help with the demonstration garden and the help with the local foods campaign and other community service projects. Cooperative Extension will continue to advise the Randolph County Livestock and Poultry Association and provide educational programming opportunities for its members.

The third priority identified accentuates the need to continue educational programming in nutrition education. According to the 2007 Behavior Risk Factor Surveillance Survey, over 66% percent of the county residents are overweight or obese. Twenty-one percent of residents continue to consume five or less servings of fruits or vegetables a day. Even with the increased awareness of the benefits of being physically active, only 28% of the residents meet the recommendation for being physically active. Eat Smart, Move More, Weigh Less will continue to be offered in 2016. The Steps to Health youth programming will be offered as well. In addition, a senior adult Steps to Health program will be offered to seniors at congregate nutrition sites. The Better Foods Better Health program aimed specifically at Latino and English speaking families will be offered. Nutrition and Healthy cooking classes will also be offered. Extension staff will also participate in Health Fairs at various locations across the county.

Our fourth priority area, Youth programming and Families at Risk, revolves around the 4-H program. Randolph County 4-H currently involves over 10,000 boys and girls in educational programs that teaches a wide range of new knowledge and skills. The focus is on hands-on learning experiences that involve the whole family, life skill development such as teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving, communication, leadership development and community service. Volunteers play a critical role in 4-H. Therefore, emphasis will be placed on the recruitment and development of volunteers.

Life Stages, our fifth priority area entails programming that prepares families for their changing lives. The Extension Community Association will be supported with programs that enhance daily living and provide service to the community.
