South Central Texas Independent Cattlemen’s Association (SCTICA) held its annual meeting on Jan. 15, at Lew’s Patio & Grill in Floresville. SCTICA President Brad Cotton opened the meeting and chapter Chaplain Alton Kuykendall offered the prayer, followed by chapter director Richard L. “Dickie” Jackson leading the Pledge of Allegiance.

More than 80 members and guests attended and were treated to a delicious complimentary meal including meatloaf, mashed potatoes, vegetables, and cookies for dessert.

Chapter Treasurer Larry Wiley gave the treasurer’s report and Nominating Committee chairman Jackson gave the nominating report. Directors voted to return to the SCTICA board were: Alton Kuykendall and Pat Kuykendall, both of Wilson County; and Laurie Miller and Gary West, both of Atascosa County.

All officers were elected to return to their positions: President Brad Cotton, Vice President Gus Gonzalez, Secretary Susan Gonzalez, and Treasurer Larry Wiley.

Speakers for the evening included John Jaworowski of Morales Feed & Supply and Jim Megassin of Mix 30 cattle supplement. Megassin used a video presentation by Mix 30 Feed which gave details about feeding stock, getting the product delivered, and how weather affects the product. The audience was very pleased to hear testimonials from those that use the product in the video from different parts of the United States. Questions were asked and brochures were available to the audience.

Independent Cattlemen’s Association of Texas State Vice President A.L. “Windy” Miller spoke about his and his wife, Laurie’s, attendance at the U.S. Cattlemen’s Association annual membership meeting in Las Vegas in December.

“We were impressed with the information at the country level and the contacts made by [U.S. Cattlemen’s Association Executive Vice President] Jess Peterson,” Miller said. “The cattlemen are very lucky to have Jess Peterson in the lead in Washington. He has made contacts who value Jess’s input and the input he gets from cattlemen across the United States.”

Miller then introduced the next speaker for the evening, Texas Animal Health Commission Region V Director T.R. Langston.

Langston answered many questions on the new Texas Animal Health Commission’s state tagging rules. He also brought free ear tags and explained the process and how it works.

Many guests complimented directors about how informational the meeting was and how much they appreciate the SCTICA meetings.

Local chapter director Laurie Miller was most excited about having three new members join the Independent Cattlemen’s Association of Texas at the meeting. New members are Lynn Witten of Floresville, James Otto of San Antonio, and Paul Pfeil of Floresville.

“When our community values what we are doing and spends their hard-earned money to join Independent Cattlemen’s Association,” Laurie Miller said, “we are validated that what we are doing is helping others.”

The next local chapter gathering is the Buck Taylor SCTICA Team Roping set for Saturday, April 27, in Stockdale. Buck Taylor’s attendance is tentative at this time, but he has made contact and will attend if his schedule allows. Taylor has his art at the Fort Worth Stock Show and plans to attend the Houston livestock show. He loves to have you come by and say hello, Miller said.
