The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is operated off of Interstate 35 on Civic Center Loop. Commissioner Will Conley said the county envisions moving the facility to the Freeman Ranch with the help of Texas State. The new facility would provide all levels of service and increase participation in agriculture and environmental programs.

Conley said the county hopes to work with Texas State and the Freeman Ranch to develop a program where both parties will benefit.

“If you look at the mission statement and the goals of both organizations, I believe they run a parallel track. What better way to promote further education and to have education at a first class level?”
– Will Conley

Through the service, residents can participate in 4H, Master Gardening classes, and many other programs.

Conley is currently approaching university administration to work on the program.
