AgriLife Extension demonstrates the latest technology and best practices to improve the state’s food and fiber system, which serves all Texas consumers and contributes nine percent of the gross domestic product. Texas 4-H, our primary youth program, engages some 600,000 youth every year in learning projects, leadership development, and community service.
Collaborative programs enable extension educators and their partners to extend resources and prevent duplication of services. In 2012, planned extension programs involved a total of 208 collaborators–diverse private sector and nonprofit entities–and hundreds of school districts.
In Mason County two local agents offer resources in Ag and Natural Resources and Family and Consumer Sciences. The Mason County 4-H Club is supported by Mason County AgriLife Extension.
