Members of the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association approved policy Sept. 27 to urge the Texas Legislature to properly fund the repair and maintenance of farm-to-market roads. The policy comes after a recent announcement by the Texas Department of Public Transportation (TxDOT) to convert existing paved farm-to-market and rural ranch roads in South and West Texas to gravel roads due to lack of funding.

“Safe and well-maintained rural roads are the lifeline of the Texas cattle industry,” said Pete Bonds, Saginaw rancher and Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association president. “It’s the Legislature’s responsibility to give TxDOT the funds it needs to repair and maintain these roads.”

The roads initially proposed for conversion total 85 miles in four counties in South Texas and two counties in West Texas. Both areas are in the middle of a region experiencing significant oil and gas activity and a large increase in the number and size of trucks transporting products on rural roads.

Bonds said that without proper maintenance of these roads, the oil and gas industry will suffer just like the cattle industry.

The association’s policy additionally calls for the oil and gas industry to make financial contributions to help fund the repair and/or maintenance of farm/ranch-to-market roads that are being utilized for oil and gas activity.
