UT/TSU Extension Welcomes New Agriculture Agent Jason DeBusk   Agriculture has been in his blood from the beginning so working closely with farmers and homeowners is nothing new.    Jason DeBusk is the newest staff member of the UT/TSU Extension Office in Cleveland.  He was born into a family of farmers in Union County where they focused on sheep and beef. Even now, “many years later,” he says, Jason is still raising animals and farming to pass the legacy onto his children.   DeBusk was an active 4-H member who showed animals, competed on judging teams, and participated in a Young Farmers Exchange to New Zealand for five weeks in 1989.  He attended the University of Tennessee where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Ag-Business.  Upon graduating from college, he found work fitting livestock, sheering sheep, trimming hooves, and showing animals.  In 1996, he joined Chattanooga Ag Credit as a Loan Officer.  During his 20+ year career with Ag Credit, he climbed to positions of Branch Manager and Real Estate Appraiser.   When asked what brought him to work in Extension, Jason said, “Kim Frady, Bradley County Extension’s director, encouraged me to apply for the Ag position.  My kids show sheep and dairy and when I met up with Kim last fall, he said I would be a good fit for Extension.  I was always involved in 4-H and Extension from a young age so I was already familiar with it.”  The organization he grew up in as a 4-H member is now the organization for whom DeBusk works.    DeBusk’s expertise is in small farms, hay, forages, and livestock.  He lives in Riceville with his wife, Kerri, and their two children, Isaac and Grace.  DeBusk lives on and currently farms 250 acres so he comes to Bradley County as an Agriculture agent with many years of first-hand experience.   Contact Jason DeBusk at 423-728-7001 or jdebusk@tnstate.edu for more information about UT/TSU Extension or if you have specific agricultural needs. more
