Fort Worth, Texas – Texas Commissioner of Agriculture Todd Staples will discuss the economy and property rights during the Thursday luncheon of the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Fall Meeting, Thursday, Sept. 30, from noon until 1:30 p.m.
The TSCRA Fall Meeting is a three-day event where cattle raisers from across the state gather to participate in educational sessions and fellowship with fellow cattle raisers. The meeting will take place at the Omni Austin Hotel in downtown Austin, Texas, Sept. 29 through Oct. 1.
“The free enterprise system and individual responsibility built our economy, not government,” Staples said. “Each generation has a duty to remind voters and elected officials alike of this timeless principle. Those who built Texas knew it well.”
“Nothing is on the minds of cattle raisers and landowners in Texas more than the fragile state of our economy and private property rights,” said Dave Scott, rancher and TSCRA president. “Todd is a friend of the industry and we are excited to have him come speak on these important topics.”
