FORT WORTH -- U.S. Rep. Mike Conaway and Texas Rep. Charlie Geren will discuss the latest on federal and state government actions at one of the many breakout sessions during the 136th annual Cattle Raisers Convention set for Friday through Sunday, March 22-24, in Fort Worth.

“Texas is synonymous with cattle country, and the cattle industry provides an important way of life for many Texans. Our ranchers are impacted by many issues coming out of Washington, including immigration, the pending farm bill, and the sequester,” Conaway said in a March 6 cattle raisers press release. “I look forward to speaking about these and other crucial issues at the Cattle Raisers Convention.”

Conaway is a member of the House Agriculture Committee, where he chairs the subcommittee on General Farm Commodities and Risk Management. He has continued to press the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for answers on the recent threat of furloughing federal meat inspectors, a decision that would likely harm the cattle industry in Texas.

“Inspecting and ensuring the safety and availability of American meat products is not negotiable. If USDA’s leadership feels furloughs of meat inspectors are necessary to comply with the sequester, they need to provide justification and explain why no other cuts are possible,” Conaway said in a recent statement.

Geren will discuss actions taken by the State Legislature during the 83rd Legislative Session, and what effect they could have on landowners and ranchers.

“Two of the biggest issues facing ranchers and rural Texans right now are water and private property rights,” said Geren. “With the Legislature in session, it’s crucial that the cattle industry maintain their strong presence at the state Capitol.”

Geren championed SB 18, largely known as the eminent domain bill, which was signed into law in 2011. He was a critical component to the bill’s passage and has diligently worked to continue strengthening the private property rights of landowners during the eminent domain and condemnation process.

The representatives will speak at the breakout session Saturday, March 23, at 2 p.m. For a complete schedule of all breakout sessions and speakers, visit the convention website at
