FORT WORTH -- Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association Past President Dave Scott has been appointed by Gov. Rick Perry to serve as the chairman of the Brazos River Authority. According to a Dec. 7 Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association press release, the authority develops and conserves surface water resources of the Brazos River Basin, the largest river in Texas.

“There is no one who understands the importance of conserving and protecting our state’s surface water better than a Texas rancher,” said Joe Parker Jr., Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association president. “Dave has worked tirelessly over the years to ensure Texas water needs are balanced with private property rights, particularly during this time of extreme drought.”

Scott, a rancher from Richmond, has spent a lifetime in the cattle business. He served as the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association president from 2009-11. Prior to that, he served as the association’s first and second vice president. Scott has been a partner in Scott Livestock Commission Co. since 1960. He operates G.D. Scott Cattle Co. and is the retired executive vice president of Port City Stockyards Co. Scott is also a life member of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

Created by the Legislature in 1929, the Brazos River Authority was the first state agency in the United States created specifically for the purpose of developing, managing, and protecting an entire river basin, according to the authority’s website. Each year the river provides 6.75 billion gallons of water to cities, agriculture, industry, and mining.

Scott’s term as a member of the Brazos River Authority board of directors expires in 2013. His term as chairman will expire at the pleasure of the governor.
