Hometown: Buffalo, Mo.

In Town: Dallas County, Mo., native Brandon Jackson has returned to the Dallas County R-1 School District as Buffalo High School Principal. 

Before being in administration, Brandon taught agriculture education for five years — four years at Wheatland and a year at Sheldon. He also principal at Climax Springs High School for two years before returning to Buffalo as vice principal at BHS for two years prior to advancing to the principal position.

“I have a passion for education, and that’s why I got into teaching. I finished my administration degree, and I always wanted to be in the administrative side of education, and I decided I could have a bigger impact doing that than just being in a classroom.”

Brandon is also a reserve police officer. 

In the Country: Brandon said he and his family have long been involved in agriculture. 

“We all do different things, but there has always been a passion for agriculture,” Brandon said. “We’ve been in livestock production and small animal production, which some of my family still does.”

Brandon said he and his family are currently involved in cattle and goat production, and there are a few chickens around the farm.

“We generally have beef cattle, and with the goats, that’s been a recent addition,” he said with a laugh. “I don’t have many, but I have a wooded area I wanted them to eat down, so we are just now getting involved in that and raising them. I like that goats will eat anything that cows don’t eat. Right now, I’m running the goats and cattle together. I don’t have a ton of land at my place, so it works pretty good.” 

Brandon would like to add to his cattle operation, focusing on raising some registered Angus or Herefords, expanding his acreage and establishing is own operation. 

“I want to actually have land to farm, and grow my livestock operation,” he said. “
