BRADY – The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service has named Justin Klinksiek to the agriculture and natural resources post in McCulloch County effective Sept. 1.
The announcement was made by Danny Neal, McCulloch County Judge, and Marty Gibbs, AgriLife Extension administrator at San Angelo.
“We’re pleased to have Justin accept this key appointment in the 23-county West Central District,” Gibbs said. “Justin is already known to many of us in the AgriLife family, as he has completed two AgriLife Extension internships and worked for Texas A&M AgriLife Research in San Angelo for several years while he was completing studies at Angelo State University.
“He’s from Bandera and has a strong knowledge of 4-H and our region’s agriculture. His excellent work ethic, strong working knowledge of agriculture and excellent people skills comprise the ideal combination for the makings of an outstanding county agent in this key semi-rural county within our district.”
Klinksiek earned a bachelor of science degree in animal science with a minor in range and wildlife management from Angelo State University. While attending Angelo State, he was a member of Delta Tau Alpha, Block and Bridle Club and Collegiate FFA.
He served as an AgriLife Extension integrated pest management technician for Tom Green and Runnels counties, and assisted with many areas of ranch management while working for AgriLife Research.
