I hope everybody is doing well. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am Greg Baker, the County Extension Agent for Agriculture and Natural Resources here in Calhoun County. I was formally employed by the Texas Department of Agriculture as a Pesticide Inspector for the past 27 years. Some of you may have had an encounter with me at some point in my past career, good, bad or indifferent. When this position came available for County Extension Agent, I thought to myself that I would be a good fit for this position. As a fifth generation cattle rancher from Matagorda County and the connections and knowledge I gained while working with the Texas Department of Agriculture this was an easy transition. I attended Sul Ross State University and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science while participating in football and track. My professors and the people I met while at school who came from ranching and agricultural backgrounds made a positive impact and persuaded me to follow a career in agriculture. My plan is to provide educational programs and make connections to this great agricultural county. Please feel free to contact me at anytime.
