“Kaylee will join the program on March 15, participating in our First Step program in Young County the first month and then taking over the program in Throckmorton,” Dabovich said. “We look forward to bringing Kaylee on board to District 3. Her background in agriculture education with 4-H and FFA will be an asset to a strong youth and producer program in Throckmorton County.”

Farquhar, a native of Throckmorton, is returning to her roots after getting her education at Weatherford College in Weatherford, Clarendon College in Clarendon and West Texas A&M University in Canyon.

She has participated on the Clarendon College Livestock Judging Team and was involved with the Collegiate FFA Chapter at West Texas A&M. She also spent two years working at Edes Custom Meats in Amarillo before student teaching at Albany High School.

“I grew up in and around agriculture my whole life,” Farquhar said. “I was very involved in 4-H and have seen good programs where the county agent was heavily involved with the program and have seen programs where there was little or no support for 4-H.

“My passion is agriculture and all that it entails, and I believe that having the ability to share my knowledge with the future generations is crucial to the future of agriculture,” she said.
