The Cattleman magazine is received monthly by TSCRA members as part of their membership in the organization.
In this month’s Cattle Raisers Cross Section, an unscientific survey of TSCRA members, we asked some of those who have registered for the Cattle Raisers Convention what they want to learn or accomplish.
The size of the words in the graphic reflects how often that answer was given. People are coming to learn something “new,” given the size of that word. They are also coming to see “friends.”
One kind member who answered our survey question added a note to his answer, saying that TSCRA members are some of the finest people a person could meet.
We are fortunate to have a large membership and within those members to have leading business and legal minds.
We are fortunate that those people generously share their knowledge. For example, on page 102, you’ll find Larry Stalcup’s interview with Bart Wulff on risk management. ➤
Wulff, a Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association director, goes beyond the risk management of cattle and input prices. He covers the risks that are the literal on-the-ground kind — visitors to the ranch, lessors, hunters, injuries and more. You’ll learn a great deal from Wulff’s comments.
We have other practical ranching information in the story by Maggie Malson on Frenzel Beefmasters. We’re featuring that breed in this issue. The Beefmaster Breeders United members and leaders are another example of fine people who care about their peers, their land and their resources.
I’ve written it before and will again — no one must be a rancher. Ranching is a chosen profession and life and those who choose to ranch choose community, friendship and to show a fine spirit of loyalty.
