Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service


Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Smith County has a rich history of serving its citizens. In 1906, W. C. Stallings was hired by the Smith County Commissioners Court as the first county agent in the United States to serve only one county. 

 Today, five agents and one program assistant serve residents with a diverse offering of educational programs and services.  

Smith County's year 2010 population of 209,714 places it in the top 25 counties in the state. County agricultural enterprises annually averages $150,000,000 for area farmers, ranchers and horticultural operations.

We provide research-based information in agriculture, horticulture, family and consumer science, 4-H and youth development and community resource development through educational programs. The Smith County Extension program is administered by a professional staff of Extension agents working with the Smith County Leadership Advisory Board. Educational programs are implemented through specific program area committees. Board and committee members are community volunteers interested in helping the people of Smith County.
