Editor's Letter - February 2016


Show Us Your Download of
The Cattleman NOW App

by Ellen H. Brisendine

February has turned into a hugely busy month – one major livestock show (Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo) is wrapping up and another (San Antonio Livestock Exposition) is starting. A third major event, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, is just a few days away from starting.

Cattle sales fill the calendar along with Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) ranch gatherings and educational events.

In a few weeks, ranchers and their friends will converge at the Fort Worth Convention Center for the Cattle Raisers Convention, April 8 to 10. If your schedule allows you to attend the entire event, then register early for the full registration packet – and save $100 by registering before March 25.

If you can spare only a day away from work or other duties, then be assured every day of the convention offers worthwhile programming and fun social events. We’ve highlighted many of the Saturday, April 9, events in this issue. Details about the entire convention are on our website –

We’ve updated The Cattleman NOW app – making it similar to the original app, yet simpler to use.

You can use The Cattleman NOW on your smartphone or your tablet to keep up with sales, seminars and ranch gatherings in your area. Read the daily news. Find your special ranger with just a few clicks on a screen. And when you’re at the Cattle Raisers Convention, click on the Meetings button to get the daily schedule and important meeting information.

The Cattleman NOW app is a news and reference resource that is available exclusively to TSCRA members.

I invite you to stop by The Cattleman booth at the Cattle Raisers Convention and show us the app on your phone or tablet, or we can help you download it on the spot. Either way, we’ll enter your name in a drawing for a $300 gift certificate to one of our great Cattle Raisers Expo exhibitors.

"Conversations" is from the February 2016 issue of The Cattleman magazine.
