COLLEGE STATION -- Four state agricultural agencies -- three of which have served Texans for about 100 years -- are adding A&M to their names to reflect their connection to the system that includes Texas A&M University, according to an Aug. 3 Texas A&M University press release.

The new names -- Texas A&M AgriLife Research, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, Texas A&M Forest Service, and Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory -- are among seven agencies that changed as of Sept. 1, following a vote Aug. 3 by the Texas A&M University System board of regents.

An agency of the Texas A&M University System, the veterinary medical diagnostic lab was established in 1969 and is composed of two full-service laboratories, in College Station and Amarillo, and two poultry laboratories, in Center and Gonzales. The lab’s primary clients are Texas animal owners, veterinarians, and state and federal agencies.

The changes were recommended by Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp, who believed that the previous names of the agencies did not adequately benefit the statewide organization.

The other agency changes include the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service, and the Texas A&M Transportation Institute.

AgriLife Extension serves people in all 254 counties with objective, research-based education programs and services in agriculture and natural resources, 4-H and youth development, family and consumer sciences, and community economic development.
