Our friends at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo (FWSSR) are again extending a generous offer to members of Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA): Free admittance to the Stock Show grounds for the duration of the event, Jan. 18 to Feb. 9.
To order passes, use the form that came with your copy of this magazine, or visit www.tscra.org/fwssr.
You can also order tickets to the wildly popular ranch rodeo and Saturday night party. Ranch rodeo tickets always sell out in the first few days, so be quick to order.
November is the issue in which we take a look at ranch horses. Maggie Malson writes about two talented professionals who literally take a look at horses — through the lenses of their cameras. Enjoy Maggie’s talk with photographers Don Shugart and Constance Jaeggi. They work with the same basic materials, but create wonderfully different forms of art.
If you received this magazine in the mail, you also received the annual Bayer Management Manual. This handy booklet offers range and pasture management tips, weed and brush control information and animal health information. We thank our friends at Bayer for helping us bring such useful information to TSCRA members.
This month we celebrate Thanksgiving in the U.S. This uniquely American holiday ignores religious, political and ethnic lines. Americans are called to pause and remember the freedom in which we live and the price paid, over and again, for that liberty.
In this Thanksgiving month, please allow me to say thank you to the men and women who have served this country and to those who continue to volunteer to protect our freedom.
