Dallas County Texas A&M AgriLife Extension

Dallas County Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Extension provides programs, tools, and resources to improve agriculture and food production, advance health, protect the environment and enrich youth.

The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is a unique education agency with a statewide network of professional educators, trained volunteers, and county offices. It reaches into every Texas county to address local priority needs. Some of our major efforts are in mitigating drought impacts; conserving water use in homes, landscapes, and production agriculture; improving emergency management; enhancing food security; and protecting human health through education about diet, exercise, and disease prevention and management. AgriLife Extension demonstrates the latest technology and best practices to improve the state’s food and fiber system, which serves all Texas consumers and contributes nine percent of the gross domestic product. Texas 4-H, our primary youth program, engages some 600,000 youth every year in learning projects, leadership development, and community service.

This week we have taken an in-depth look at exotic venison. We have helped you identify various species of wild game in Texas and it’s impact on the local economy. We have looked at the different types of exotic game meats you might find for sale at your local supermarket. We have also shown you ways to prep, store, and cook those meats for safety and quality. We have demonstrated the proper way to use a food thermometer on axis and discussed why it is even more important to accurately measure temperature on these products to make your complete game meat experience a success.We have discussed Texas guidelines, laws, and regulations to keep you safe and now we want you to show us what you can do. Get outside and do some “tracking” Snap a picture of deer tracks in your neighborhood, post it to social media and tag us #pathtotheplate

Any idea what causes this? St Augustine grass. We have dug up and no grubs or insects appear.
Hello! I don’t know how I should submit this to y’all, but is this an Asian jumping worm? I don’t see that it’s been reported in Texas yet, so wanted to report. I’m in the Lochwood neighborhood.
Will master Gardener training be offered online during the Covid-19 crisis?
