More than 350 members, ranchers and guests attended TSCRA Ranch Gatherings in Fowlerton, Placedo and Corpus Christi this week. Attendees enjoyed a beef dinner, catching up with old friends, making new ones, and hearing from speakers about issues important to cattle raisers and landowners.
Speakers at the Fowlerton event included Jason Bagley, Texas Beef Council, who talked about the Texas beef checkoff and TSCRA Special Ranger Robin Clark, who gave an update on law enforcement activities in the area. The group also heard from TSCRA’s Jason Skaggs, executive director of government and public affairs, who gave a legislative update and TSCRA First Vice President Richard Thorpe, who talked about the benefits of being a member of the association.
