We have a new livestock agent in Surry County! Bailey Wood started her new role as the county’s Livestock Extension Agent on December 1st. She grew up raising livestock in Stephens City, Virginia and was active in 4-H and FFA. She graduated from Virginia Tech where she studied Animal and Poultry Sciences and Dairy Science.

Bailey will be working with local livestock producers to identify problem areas that limit long-term productivity. She will continue with the existing livestock program and incorporate educational programs that will address rising production issues. These programs will help livestock producers implement best management practices into their farming operations, develop strategic plans for sustainability, and incorporate new management skills into their operations. Bailey hopes to enable producers to better manage renewable resources, such as soil, water, nutrients and crops. The programs will be open to anyone who is interested in livestock production, no matter the level of their experience.

We will be holding a “Meet and Greet” floating reception with Bailey on Wednesday, December 14th from 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. at the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Surry County Center (915 E. Atkins Street, Dobson). Please feel free to stop in, say “hello”, and introduce yourself to Bailey.
