The Lawrence County Extension Service has a new 4-H/agriculture agent, according to Martha May, staff chair.

Bryce Baldridge, who is currently living in Jonesboro with hopes of relocating to Lawrence County soon, began serving in the position on Oct. 15.

He is getting his feet wet and trying to meet people in the community. On Thursday, he and May attended the local Kiwanis Club meeting in Walnut Ridge.

Baldridge earned his bachelor's degree in animal science from Arkansas State University in 1995 and received his master's degree in 1999.

He is new to the Extension Service. He was previously working for the Arkansas Department of Corrections as the supervisor of confined animals at the dairy, poultry, swine and feedmill facility, which is located at the Cummins Unit, near Pine Bluff.

He was with the ADC for five years. Prior to that, he worked two years with the Tyson Pork Group as a barn manager.

Baldridge will be working with the 4-H Program and those in the livestock program.

He was active as a member of 4-H from 1985-90 in the Independence County Livestock Club. He showed steers and heifers and was a member of the livestock judging team.

He and his wife, Amber, who is a dental hygienist, have a two-year-old son, Easton.

"I look forward to working with the 4-H folks and the livestock producers," Baldridge said.
