FLORESVILLE -- Bryan Davis is the new Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service agent for agriculture and natural resources in Wilson County as of Feb. 1, said AgriLife Extension and county officials.

Davis had served as an AgriLife Extension agent in Bexar County since January 2009.

“I’ve been impressed with Bryan being level-headed and enthusiastic about working with our rural county residents,” said Wilson County Judge Marvin Quinney. “He has some big shoes to fill, but it looks like he’s going to fit right in.”

More than 85 percent of Wilson County is farm and ranchland, with about half of its total agricultural income resulting from beef cattle production. Grain sorghum, corn, milk, peanuts, hay, swine, and wheat comprise most of the remaining half.

“I’ve raised cattle and am familiar with that aspect of Wilson County’s agriculture, plus have had experience with some of the other agricultural production vital to the county,” Davis said. “I hope through my role as AgriLife Extension agent for Wilson County I can bring some useful information and technical support to area farmers and ranchers.”

Davis has a master’s degree in animal breeding and genetics from Angelo State University in San Angelo, where he also earned his bachelor’s degree in animal science. He has been with AgriLife Extension for 12 years, starting as an agent in Comal County and then as an agent in Hays County prior to coming to Bexar County. He also had previous experience within the Texas A&M University System, serving as a lab technician at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center in San Angelo.

“Bryan has experience and knowledge in a wide range of agricultural production systems and has conducted successful educational programs for both urban and rural audiences,” said Marvin Ensor, AgriLife Extension West Region program director for agriculture and natural resources, San Angelo. “He will be a great resource for the people in Wilson County.”

During his time in Bexar County, Davis was deeply involved in educational opportunities at the annual San Antonio Livestock Show & Rodeo, the San Antonio International Farm and Ranch Show, and multi-county Beef Cattle Short Course and Beef Cattle Field Day. He also was involved with numerous 4-H activities and collaborated closely with the Alamo Area Master Naturalist program.

Davis’ leadership within AgriLife Extension has included membership on various committees, teams, and task forces, as well as coordination and participation in numerous local, regional, and state conferences. He also has been a member of the San Antonio Food Policy Council, the Texas Farm Bureau Texas Agricultural Challenges Team (TACT) Committee, and Texas Oak Wilt Advisory Board, plus as an advisor to The Luling Foundation.

Davis also has received numerous awards from the National Association of County Agricultural Agents, Texas County Agricultural Agents Association, Alamo Area Master Naturalists, and AgriLife Extension.

Schattenberg is a media relations specialist and member of the news editing team of the AgriLife Communications department of the Texas A&M University System.
