“We are very excited to have Taryn at the helm in Kimble County,” said Michael Haynes, AgriLife Extension administrator for the agency’s District 10, headquartered in Uvalde. “His background and education make him a natural fit, coupled with his unparalleled drive for excellence. I can think of no better person to be the Kimble County agent and we’re proud to have him on our District 10 team.”

Titsworth earned his bachelor’s degree in agriculture science and leadership from Angelo State University and has completed coursework in the areas of effective technology use in agriculture, rangeland soil science, sheep and goat science, and beef cattle science.

Titsworth’s previous work experience includes as a ranch manager at C&G Dorpers in Comfort, where he managed and promoted that commercial and purebred dorper sheep operation. He was also a ranch hand at Two Springs Ranch in Bronte, where he sheared, prepared and transported prospective show goats to production sales and performed various ranching duties as required.

At Angelo State, Titsworth was a member of Delta Tau Alpha Agriculture Honor Society and was on the dean’s list for six semesters.

“I am excited to be working for an organization that advocates so strongly for agriculture,” Titsworth said. “The idea of getting to work with adults and kids on agricultural topics of any kind is exciting to me.”

He said as an AgriLife Extension agent, he will be available to the county’s landowners and community members, offering them an ample amount of continuing education opportunities.

“As for our local youth, I am working on getting multiple activities fired up and going so there are more ways for our youth to participate at the local, district and state level,” he said. “Also, I want to advocate the important role agriculture has played, is playing and will play in our society to our youth through hands-on activities.”
