MIDLAND, Texas — Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Special Ranger Kenny Wadsworth is seeking information in connection to the recent theft of 24 heavy-bred Boer show nanny goats. They were stolen from a property in Midland County, April 8, 2019. Multiple fences were cut, and it is believed that the animals were herded onto a trailer for transport.
