PLEASANTON -- The South Central Texas Independent Cattlemen’s Association met July 16 in Atascosa County at the Longhorn Museum located in Pleasanton. Approximately 80 members attended the meeting and barbecue dinner catered by McBee’s.

Glen Tate, D.V.M., was appointed as a director for the local chapter. Chapter treasurer Larry Wiley gave the treasurer’s report and discussed the success of the team roping held in April.

Eric Otto of Douguet’s Diamond D Ranch spoke about the annual Production Sale that will be held Saturday, Oct. 19, in Poteet.

Jay Gray, general manager of Graham Land and Cattle, discussed how the futures market affects the cow/calf operation. He noted it controls what the cattlemen receive when they bring cattle to auction. When asked about the best time to sell cattle, he said that April had proven to be the best month. Gray also said there was an app that you can put on your smart phone that will keep the cattlemen abreast of what is happening with the futures market.

Independent Cattlemen’s Association of Texas (ICA) Executive Director Bill Hyman spoke about the importance of Country Of Origin Labeling (COOL). Buying beef from the United States is very beneficial to the future of the cattle business, he said. Hyman also discussed the treatment of fever ticks in South Texas with Ivomectin in a molasses block, which has been successful. There is still some testing going on but this method should be made available for purchase in the near future.

Hyman also discussed the upcoming all-breed bull and female sale hosted by four of the Texas ICA chapters. This event will be held Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 23-24, at the J.B. Wells Park in Gonzales.

Susan Gonzalez is a director of the South Central Texas Independent Cattlemen’s Association and serves as secretary of the organization.
