The commissioner of agriculture, who is elected in the general election every four years, heads the agency. The current commissioner, Susan Combs , was elected in 1998, and is a fourth-generation rancher. The mission statement of the Texas Department of Agriculture is: Making Texas the nation's leader in agriculture, while promoting excellence in children's nutrition, rural economic development and providing efficient and extraordinary service.

Extractions: Internet Address: email@example.com The U.S. population is becoming more diverse. Currently, racial and ethnic minorities make up 25% of the population. It is estimated that by the year 2030 this proportion will increase to 40% (Allen, 2001). In 1997, the nation's total foreign-born population numbered 26 million, of which 7 million were native of Mexico (US Census Bureau, 2001). As of 1998, the Hispanic population of Texas was 6 million, representing 30% of the state's population. Six Texas counties were at least 90% Hispanic: Starr (98%), Webb (95%), Maverick (95%), Jim Hogg (93%), Brooks (91%), and Zavala (91%) (U.S. Census Bureau, 2001). To address this challenge, a nutrition education program, "The Importance of Nutrition in the Prevention of Birth Defects: Education Outreach in South Texas," was developed and implemented by the Texas Cooperative Extension, Texas A&M University System in collaboration with the Texas A&M University Health Science Center. Funding for the 3-year project was provided by the Houston Endowment Inc. Curriculum and program outreach materials were titled "Celebrando Los Niños" (celebrate the baby).
