Speakers to address oil leases, beef check-off

By Brad Cotton

September is flying by and rain has still been hard to come by. Many ranchers in the Wilson County area are cutting down on the size of their herds or getting out of the cattle business all together. Ponds continue to go dry and hay is a scarce commodity. Some ranchers have seen a little rain, while others still wait, but at least we are getting a little break from the triple-digit heat.

The drought has also taken its toll on our Fall Cattle Sale in Gonzales. After much consideration, it was decided that it would be in everyone’s best interest to cancel this year’s sale and start again next year.

The directors of the South Central Texas Chapter of the Independent Cattlemen’s Association (ICA) are making preparations for our quarterly meeting to be held Tuesday, Oct. 18, at 6:30 p.m. in the Falls City Community Center in Falls City.

We will have a complimentary barbecue dinner. Kitty Sue Quinn, executive director of the Texas Mineral and Landowners Association, will be on hand to answer any questions you may have regarding oil leases. She will be followed by Bill Hyman, state executive director of the ICA, who will bring us all up to date on your Beef Check-Off dollars and other current issues pertaining to cattlemen.

Our area has seen a huge amount of activity in the oil business so I’m sure there will be a great deal of information to be shared which we can all find useful.

Hope to see you all at our meeting in October. Pray for rain.

For more information, call 830-391-0337 or Richard L. “Dickie” Jackson at 830-391-3153.

Brad Cotton is the president of the South Central Texas Chapter of the Independent Cattlemen’s Association.
