Lifetime rancher and longtime Brazos Valley resident, Kyle Kacal is honored to continue serving Texas House District 12. Kyle is a strong fiscal conservative and a staunch supporter of independent liberties and personal freedom and has devoted his life to preserving the land and contributing to local and state economies through his dynamic ranching business. Kyle looks forward to the progress that can be made for rural Texas and hopes you will join him in that fight to make Texas a better place for future generations.
Serving as Texas House Representative for District 12 since 2012, Kyle is active in his local community, serving on various business and community boards including the Texas Beef Extension, the Brazos Valley Farm Bureau and the Allen Academy School Board. Kyle also served on the House Committees for Agriculture and Livestock, Environmental Regulation, and Natural Resources as well as being named Vice-Chair of House Rules and Resolutions. A proven leader on the House floor for agriculture and other key Texas issues, Kyle steered efforts in both sessions to realize significant progress on the priorities of House District 12, including maintaining a responsible and balanced budget with record tax cuts, meaningful education reform and ensuring investment in critical water and road infrastructure.
In 1992, Kyle earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Texas A&M University, notably the state’s first land-grant institution that continues to play a critical role in Texas agriculture. Following his graduation from Texas A&M, Kyle worked for Jefferson Pilot before pursuing a Certificate of Ranch Management from Texas Christian University. After obtaining his graduate certificate, Kyle returned to the Brazos Valley, where he has lived and worked ever since. He runs a large-scale cattle business on his ranch in College Station, focusing on breeding and raising beef cattle, and operates a full-service hunting business during the fall and spring. This full-circle view of ranch and land management, and his extensive experience in balancing the business of ranching with agricultural conservation, has equipped Kyle Kacal to be a strong conservative voice for rural Texans. Kyle and Marci, his wife of over 20 years, have two children, Carter and Kendall. The family is actively involved in their church, St. Thomas Aquinas.
