Kara Matheney, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service agent for Washington County, received the Outstanding Beef County Extension Agent award at the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association Convention recently in Fort Worth.
Matheney was nominated for her leadership with the annual South Texas Cow-Calf Clinic, one of the oldest and longest-standing Extension educational programs in the state. The program attracts more than 300 participants in an eight-county area and provides ongoing educational programming in promoting beef production throughout South Central Texas.
The popular grass-fed beef conference is scheduled May 30-31 and will provide a comprehensive look at grass-fed beef production and marketing opportunities in Texas, according to organizers.
This Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service conference provides in-depth instruction and is hosted on the Texas A&M University campus in College Station.
