FORT WORTH -- Today’s rancher is faced with three major challenges: a looming financial crisis that is slowing consumer demand for beef, the lowest cattle supplies since the 1940s, and a lingering drought that has expanded to other parts of the country. What this crossroad means for the cattle industry and how ranchers will manage through these difficult times will be the focus of the 136th annual Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Convention Friday through Sunday, March 22-24.

Economist Don Reynolds will address ranchers at the opening general session of the convention. Reynolds will talk about the global economy prior to, during, and following the financial crisis as well as the course the United States can take and what role the cattle industry will play moving forward.

Kevin Good, senior analyst for CattleFax, will talk more specifically about how the U.S. economic situation is affecting the cattle markets. He will discuss how the drought in the Midwest is affecting feed costs as well as the improving export markets and the continued contraction of the U.S. cattle herd.

Rounding out the discussion on drought will be climatologist Evelyn Browning-Garris. Browning-Garris will present her unique scientific research on past weather patterns similar to the current pattern, which will give ranchers an insight as to when the drought might end.

More than 2,500 ranchers and landowners will gather as part of the largest cattle industry convention and exposition in the Southwest.

Highlights of the convention include the popular School for Successful Ranching, the Cattle Raisers Expo (the largest beef industry trade show in the region), and committee breakout sessions covering a wide range of ranching and wildlife topics.

Meat-cutting demonstrations, the Special Ranger Silent Auction, and youth contests will also take place in the expo, as well as breakfast Saturday for all attendees.
