"You don't think you're involved in agriculture? Well, if you eat food; you're involved with agriculture." What a great message today from Guadalupe County AgrLife Extension Agent, Travis Franke. His presentation on Ag Economics in Guadalupe County provided great insight about the importance of agriculture to our everyday life and the importance of educating our youth about how critical agriculture is to our every day lives.
The Extension Program, directed by the Extension Program Council, strives to serve a population who derives its main income from a mix of agriculture, industry and small business. Recreation in the county includes river activities, rodeos, hunting, fishing and many other community events. Guadalupe county is concentrating on growing a strong educational system and economy that will prepare its citizens and children for the 21st century.
The mission is to provide quality, relevant outreach and continuing education programs and services to the residents of Guadalupe County.
