“Texas Trail,” the online delivery component of Quality Counts, has found a new home.  

The online modules are now available on the eXtension online campus at campus.extension.org. Hosting “Texas Trail” on the eXtension campus allows us greater flexibility with maintaining the online modules and tracking their use. 

We have a one-page document that outlines the process of creating an account on the eXtension campus and enrolling in the Quality Counts course in order to access the modules. As members work to verify in Quality Counts, they need to consider the  “Texas Trail” as a viable option to compete in major shows.

9-1-1 signs available

We are currently selling 9-1-1 signs.

Contact a 4-H member or call the Goliad County Extension Office at 645-8204 to place an order.

The 12x6 signs are $15 for three to four numbers and 18x6 signs are $16 for five numbers.

To find out a correct 9-1-1 address, call Golden Crescent at 578-1587.

This is not a fundraiser, just a community service project to help Goliad County.
