As a function of TSCRA’s commitment to representing ranchers and landowners in Texas and across the Southwest, our governmental and public affairs office is hard at work tackling the issues important to the beef industry. The association’s team of knowledgeable and experienced representatives are out in the field both locally and nationally to defend landowner rights and the ranching way of life. Each week we will keep TSCRA members informed and up-to-date on the activities and issues taking place in Austin, Washington D.C. and around the globe.
TSCRA leaders and staff traveled to Washington, D.C. to meet with Congressional leaders. Major topics of discussion included trade, especially NAFTA, taxes and fever ticks. Visit our Facebook page to check out more photos from our meetings, and if you haven’t yet, watch TSCRA leaders discuss the importance of the cattle industry with Congressman Jodey Arrington.
On Tuesday, TSCRA staff, in conjunction with members and staff of the Texas Legislature, coordinated a ranch tour of 44 Farms in Cameron and lunch at Southside BBQ in Elgin for reporters from China Central Television to discuss the recent agreement to reopen the Chinese market to U.S. beef. More photos from the day can also be found on our Facebook page.
