Cattle raisers host fall meeting
Cattle raisers from across the state will gather for educational breakout sessions, networking, and fellowship at the annual Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association Fall Meeting set for Wednesday through Friday, Sept. 28-30. The meeting will take place at the Overton Hotel located at 2322 Mac Davis Lane in Lubbock.
Texas Comptroller Susan Combs, who also serves as the presiding officer of the Interagency Task Force on Economic Growth and Endangered Species, will speak to cattle raisers Thursday at 10:30 a.m. on the endangered species act and what landowners can do to protect their private property.
The breakout sessions, hosted by the cattle raisers association committees, begin Thursday, Sept. 29, and will cover a variety of topics critical to Texas cattle producers and landowners -- marketing, the threat of bioterrorism attack in cattle, the national debt/debt reduction debate, the animal disease traceability framework, and groundwater ownership bill.
