DECATUR – Todd Vineyard, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service agent for agriculture and natural resources in Wise County, has received the agency’s Superior Service Award for County Extension Agents.
The award was presented Jan. 8 during the agency’s Centennial Conference in College Station.
Vineyard was recognized for his work with the county Livestock and Forage Committee, Texas Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association and the Noble Foundation in developing a series of programs that addressed drought issues, as well as a series of educational events for new and small acreage landowners.
The 14 programs were conducted on beef cattle and forage management and other emerging issues and attended by almost 1,500 clientele.
“Todd does a tremendous job of educating the landowners and ag producers on how to be better stewards of the natural resources we sometimes take for granted,” said a member of his county committee. “He has covered topics in his meetings and programs that strike a chord with both the new small landowners and larger for-profit ag producers in Wise County and the surrounding communities.”
Superior Service awards are presented to personnel who demonstrate outstanding performance or provide exceptional service to AgriLife Extension, an educational outreach agency of The Texas A&M University System.
