I met my good friend, Trevor Dickschat, when he served as the McCulloch County Extension Agent. Since then he has since relocated to Giddings, TX where he serves as the Lee County Ag and Natural Resources Extension Agent. Trevor loves working as an agent almost as much as he loves Aggie football and hunting, which is ALOT. What I appreciate most about Trevor is that he doesn’t care who gets the glory or credit, he just wants the job done and done right. He is an incredible agent and I truly miss working with him. What our loss in McCulloch County was, is now Lee County’s gain. Thank you Trevor for doing what you do. You’re pretty darn good at it 🙂
Meet Trevor Dickschat – Lee County Extension Agent! (McCulloch County Extension Agent at time of writing this blog)
Why did you become a County Extension Agent? I became an extension agent because of the 4H program of which has shaped me into the professional that I have become. I was raised on a farm, primary production of cattle and hay, and was very active in the show industry and 4H. My passion for hunting and fishing, and the outdoors have grown with age and experiences. I figured why not give back to those who have allowed me the opportunity to enjoy what I am passionate about.
What are some concerns specific to agriculture in your county? Water, of course is the bigges challenge that we are facing and will continue to face in the future. From growing up in east Texas to moving out West, the concern for invasive plant species and overpopulation of unwanted plants is a concern and something that I hope to continue to educate my county.
What is the most rewarding part of your position? Being able to hear what new and exciting things individuals took from educational presentations and Realizing that I helped allow to future benefit my constituents. Whether that be from the ag and natural resource and adult perspective, to the youth development.
What is the weirdest request you have ever received as a CEA and how did you solve it? I once hosted a 4H dance and one of the youngsters approached myself, the DJ and asked to play some REAL music they could dance to. After I had enough of Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean music I could stand I finally broke down and played the Wobble. Every kid got out on that dance floor and not a single one sitting. My response was, what is our music generation coming to…. 🙂
If you could be anything else, what would you be? I would love to manage a wildlife ranch in which the main focus would be large game and raising cattle, and would host private hunts and outdoor experiences.
