Dallam County Commissioner Precinct 2 newcomer David Moore
By Robin Scott
David Moore is a native of Dalhart, having been born and raised in Dalhart. He graduated from Dalhart High School in 1979. Following graduation, he attended Texas Tech University and earned his Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Economics. In 1983, he returned to Dalhart to join his father, Billy Moore, on the family farm in Dallam County. He continues to remain involved in ownership and management of the 2,800-acre family farm.
David and wife, Vickie, have three children; Matt, Molly and Ben. Matt and Molly reside with their parents on the family farm east of Dalhart. Ben lives in Wichita Falls, where he is the Contemporary Music Pastor at First Baptist Church. The Moores are members of First Baptist Church, and David has served as a teacher, choir member, committee member, and deacon.
In addition to farming, David has more than 25 years experience in animal waste issues. He has implemented many successful solution technologies throughout North America, including large-scale composting and waste-to-energy operations. He has provided project management in one of the largest anaerobic digesters in the country. Most recently, he formed the Florida Horse Power-LLC (FHP), a consulting, operations, and management company specializing in providing solutions for animal and agriculture waste issues nationwide.
David is a past director of Business Development for Synagro Agribusiness Services Group. As a director for three years, he was responsible for project identification and opportunity development throughout the country. He noted, “During that time, I was involved in the development of a number of projects that included the Brazos River Authority dairy manure management project in Texas, the Inland Empire Utilities Agency/California Milk Producers Council dairy anaerobic digestion project, and the Agricultural Waste Solutions LLC-dairy manure management program in New York.”
Currently, David serves as the Executive Director of the Dalhart-based High Plains Dairy Council. He has been instrumental in developing a foundation for the relocation of dairies into the Texas panhandle. He noted, “I provided leadership in attracting Hilmar Cheese Company to Dalhart.”
David stated, “I believe that I would be an asset to the Commissioner’s Court for many reasons. I am a life-long resident of Dalhart by choice. My family loves the panhandle area and in my job at the Dairy Council, I tell people every day the benefits of living in Dalhart, Texas.” He describes himself as “innovative and a problem solver.” He added, “I am experienced in managing a variety of business issues. I am familiar with the responsibilities of a Commissioner, as my father served as County Commissioner. I believe that I would be the right choice to be the next Dallam County Precincts 2 and 8 Commissioner.”
Combining his farming experience, business experience and vast experience in developing projects around the country, David is ready for the task as County Commissioner.
