Educator joins UW Extension

Pinedale – The University of Wyoming (UW) Extension welcomes Dagan Montgomery as the new Agriculture and Natural Resources Extension educator for Sublette County.

“Dagan comes to us with a solid foundation in production agriculture and a good understanding of what it takes to be successful in Extension,” comments UW Extension Interim Associate Director Bridger Feuz.

Montgomery started with UW Extension Aug. 29. He recently completed his master’s degree in animal science, with an emphasis in ruminant nutrition from Oklahoma State University. 

As an Extension educator, he’s eager to learn “the way things are done from an agricultural and natural resource perspective in this area so I can be better prepared to pitch in and help as much as possible,” he notes.  

Coming from a family of ranchers in west Texas and New Mexico, Montgomery experienced firsthand the value of strong Extension programming and looks forward to serving the Sublette County community.

“As scientific research and development continues to expand, it is critical there are services in place to effectively communicate these findings to the people and communities who need the real-world applications,” he says. “Without properly and effectively communicating data to solve problems and answer questions posed, agriculture research quickly loses value in the eyes of many producers.”

As an undergraduate, Montgomery earned a Bachelor’s of Science in animal science and a Bachelor’s of Science in equine science and management, both from the University of Kentucky. 

In addition to assisting with research in the animal sciences nutrition lab and animal science beef unit, he completed a summer internship at the IX Ranch in Choteau County, Mont.

Now, Montgomery is excited to explore Wyoming. He’s especially looking forward to taking advantage of hunting and fishing opportunities in the state.

Montgomery can be contacted by e-mailing or by calling 307-367-4380.
