BRADY – Trevor Dickschat has been named the new Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service agriculture and natural resources agent for McCulloch County.

The announcement naming Dickschat to the post was made recently by McCulloch County Judge Danny Neal and Scott Durham, AgriLife Extension administrator for the agency’s West Central District headquartered in San Angelo.

As the new agent, Dickschat will be responsible for all of AgriLife Extension’s agricultural and natural resources-related endeavors in the county, Durham said.

Dickschat will complete AgriLife Extension’s First-Step orientation program in Llano County that begins Sept. 1 before assuming his permanent McCulloch County duties Oct. 1.

“Trevor has a strong AgriLife Extension-related wildlife and livestock exhibiting background, having participated extensively in the 4-H youth program and through his work with the Texas Brigades youth wildlife program,” Durham said. “These experiences and his production agriculture upbringing should serve him well in his new role in this key post within our 23-county district.”

Dickschat earned a bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University in May, majoring in agriculture leadership and education development with an emphasis in wildlife and fisheries science.

The new agent fills the position previously held by Vance Christie, who accepted a position as a vocational agriculture science teacher with the Brady Independent School District.
