Local ICA happenings
By Brad Cotton
Special to the WCN
June has come to a close and it has been a busy month. Like many Texas ranchers, our cattle have required more care than normal with the ongoing drought. We received some much-needed rain, but are looking forward to more.
I was unable to attend the [Independent Cattlemen’s Association of Texas] convention due to illness, but was told by Windy Miller it was the best yet in his opinion.
The South Central Texas Independent Cattlemen’s Association was represented by Gary and Christi West, Windy and Laurie Miller, Marshall and Jeanne Livingston, and new director Brian Mills and his wife, Brooke.
As we move into the month of July, we are hard at work preparing for the team roping at Chesnutt Arena in Kenedy. This is the chapter’s annual fund-raiser and we are hard at work to make this year’s roping a success. The roping will be held Saturday, July 23, at 6 p.m. We are signing up sponsors and look forward to seeing everyone there.
For more information, call me at 830-391-0337.
Continue to pray for rain and see you on the 23rd.
Brad Cotton is the president of the South Central Texas Independent Cattlemen’s Association.
