McCulloch County Extensionlast updated: October 2014
McCulloch County is located in the northern part of the Edwards Plateau. The county lies in the center section of the state know as the Heart of Texas, the exact geographical center of the state having been located near Mercury.
The south side of the upper meandering Colorado River marks the northern county boundary; the other three sides of the county are practically straight, thus making the county rectangle in shape. On the north, McCulloch County is bounded by Coleman and Brown Counties, by San Saba County on the east, by Mason County of the south, by Menard County on the southwest, and by Concho county on the west.
The county seat of McCulloch County is Brady. The county is an agriculture base county. Agriculture production include: cattle, sheep, hogs, goats, horses, small grain, hay, cotton, and grain sorghum. The county is also composed of a varied industrial base which includes frac sand plants and a trailer manufacturer. Seven major highways make Brady a major trade center to numerous surrounding rural communities, making wholesale and retail trade a significant contribution to the economy.
Recreation in McCulloch County is abundant with a variety of activities. The area is noted for its excellent hunting opportunities, including trophy whitetail deer, turkey, quail, dove, and feral hogs. Water activities include water skiing, swimming, camping, and fishing at Brady Lake. Many enjoy visits to the county museum, 18-hole golf course, and famous Annual World Championship Goat Cookoff during Labor Day weekend.
