The first county agent in LaRue County, J.W. Jones, began working on June 15, 1920, almost 94 years ago. We have his first annual report on file. His reports included working with the establishment of the County Farm Bureau, the early use of lime and fertilizer, the first plantings of soybeans, bringing in purebred livestock and sheep clubs.
