Local group unites to support COOL
The directors of the South Central Texas Independent Cattlemen’s Association (SCTICA) will hold their fall meeting Tuesday, Oct. 22, in Karnes County. The directors will also host a fund-raiser in support of Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) Defense Fund created by the U.S. Cattlemen’s Association.
The directors met Aug. 27 in Jack’s Café in Floresville with 14 people in attendance.
The directors were updated of the upcoming Central Texas All Breeds Bull & Female Sale to be held Friday, Oct. 25, at the J.B. Wells Park in Gonzales.
“We are receiving commitments from a good number of people on some quality bulls and females,” said Brad Cotton, president of the SCTICA. “With some more rain and high cattle prices we look forward to another record year.”
A.L. “Windy” Miller presented an idea that was approved by the board, to help raise funds for the defense of COOL. The chapter will host a drawing for a side of beef from one of the local meat markets. “Windy and Laurie Miller have offered to purchase the first side of beef to get the ball rolling,” Cotton said.
SCTICA Director Glenn Tate said a ranch management meeting will be held Wednesday, Sept. 18, in the Wilson County Show Barn. The cattlemen will be present for anyone wishing to join the Independent Cattlemen’s Association of Texas.
