AUSTIN -- Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples and Joe Parker Jr., immediate past president of the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA), provided the following statements Aug. 7, upon the death of Texas and TSCRA President Clay Birdwell.

“Clay Birdwell, a native Texan with a true passion for agriculture, passed away this morning with his family by his side,” Staples wrote. “Not only did he dedicate his life to raising cattle, he always went above and beyond in his service to the industry, becoming one of the great agricultural leaders in the Lone Star State.

“Born in Odessa, Clay earned his degree in business from Texas Tech University in Lubbock. Birdwell’s determination and commitment to agriculture are ever evident in his service on the board of the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association. He was elected multiple times to the TSCRA board, serving as director in March 1995, second vice president in 2009, first vice president in 2011, and most recently as president. Clay was also the president of Great Plains Cattle Feeders and Birdwell Cattle Co. in Hereford, Texas.

“The agriculture industry thanks Clay for his many years of service and accomplishments that will always be cherished. We offer our prayers to his family and we will continue to honor Clay by remembering the incredible legacy he has left behind.”

Parker released the following statement following the passing of Birdwell.

“It’s with a very heavy heart that we say goodbye to TSCRA President Clay Birdwell,” Parker said. “Clay was a dear friend, strong leader, and a true Texas cattleman. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, especially his wife, children, and grandchildren during this difficult time.

“Clay was a successful and respected rancher, feedyard owner, and businessman who dedicated his life to serving his family and the cattle industry.

“Clay will be truly missed by all of us at TSCRA. He has left a lasting impression on our association and even more so, the entire cattle industry. ”
