Cattle raisers to meet June 9-11 in Arlington
Cattle producers from Texas and Oklahoma will gather Monday through Wednesday June 9-11, in Arlington for the 2014 Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association summer membership meeting. The meeting will be at the Sheraton Arlington located at 1500 Convention Center Drive in Arlington.
General briefing sessions will begin Tuesday at 8 a.m. These sessions will cover a variety of topics including updates on the Bureau of Land Management issues on the Red River, the use of brackish water, Brazilian beef imports, the Environmental Protection Agency and Clean Water Act, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s new nutrition guidelines.
Drs. Bill Mies and Gary Smith with Texas A&M University will discuss lost opportunities in beef production and what the beef industry will look like in 2025.
Texas Water Development Board member Kathleen Jackson will speak Wednesday at 9 a.m. at the board of directors meeting. She will specifically discuss the rules for the new State Water Implementation Fund for Texas (SWIFT), the fund authorized by voters last November to finance projects in the state water plan. The law directs the Texas Water Development Board to undertake the use of not less than 10 percent of the funds on rural projects.
