Meet our new AG Agent

Steve Musen was born in Bowling Green Kentucky on December 11th, 1962. At the age of six, Steve’s parents, Jim and Jenny Musen, were appointed as missionaries with the Southern Baptist International Mission Board where they served for the next 32 years.

In 1981, Steve graduated from the Rift Valley Academy in Kijabi, Kenya. Steve attended college at Western Kentucky University where he graduated with honors in 1981 with a B.S. Degree in Agriculture. He then began graduate studies at the University of Kentucky where he was awarded a M.S. in Animal Nutrition in 1994.

 Most recently, Steve has served as the County Extension Agent for Agriculture and Natural Resources Education, with the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service, in Owen County Kentucky from June 2014 to the present. Previous to that, he served as the County Extension Agent for 4-H Youth Development in Fayette County, Kentucky from 2010 to 2014.

 Steve, and his wife Denise, served as missionaries with the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention in the Philippines from 1996 to 2009. While there, they lived and served among the tribal peoples of the southern Philippines at the Mindanao Baptist Rural Life Center with a ministry of agriculture training and community development.

Steve and Denise live in Lexington Kentucky where they are active in the West Campus of CenterPoint Church. They have four children, three daughters and a son. The two oldest girls are married and the third just graduated from Lafayette High School and is now enrolled as a Pre-Vet major at U.K. Their son will be a sophomore at Lafayette High School this fall where he plays high school and club soccer.

  Soil Testing

  It is very important you test your soil each year.  With the cost of fertilizer remaining high, a soil test can save you money on the farm.  Stop by the office and pick up your soil bags.  The cost is $7.00 per sample. Generally we can get soil test back in about 10 days.
