Wichita County gets new AgriLife Extension agent


David Graf is the new Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service agent for agriculture and natural resources in Wichita County, Texas, effective Sept. 16. He moved from a similar position in Swisher County, Texas.

“We are excited that David is joining our District 3 staff and bringing with him a wealth of ag and 4-H experience,” said Miles Dabovich, AgriLife Extension district administrator in Vernon. “He was recognized with a Superior Service Award earlier this year at the annual Texas A&M AgriLife Conference in College Station.”

Graf said the move is an opportunity to get back where his family roots are. He is a native of Vernon and earned his bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University and his master’s degree from Texas A&M-Kingsville.

“I’m really excited about the challenge of working in a community as diverse as Wichita County,” he said. “This gives me an opportunity to work with the urban homeowners and small landowners. I look forward to working with a strong group of Master Gardeners here and with the rural development program, as well as continue to work with agricultural producers and the 4-H program.”

Graf, a seven-year AgriLife Extension employee, started with AgriLife Extension in Sherman County and moved to the Swisher County position in 2010.

Before joining AgriLife Extension, he was involved in a commercial and show pig operation for about 20 years, then worked for AgriPro Wheat and later Seaboard Farms in Guymon, Okla.
