The twenty-three county area the makes up District Six Extension is know as the Far West District of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, a part of the Texas A&M University System. Yes, you did see a new name for our Agency. The Chancellor and President of Texas A&M University want all Texans to know that the Agency designated by the 1862 Morrill Act to create land-grant universities, which led to the Smith-Lever Act and formalized Extension education in 1914, is an extension of the TAMUS and a proud part of that system.
