GOING t’ TEXAS

by

Last week I returned to Texas and traveled between Dallas and out to beyond College Station. This marked an absence for me that began when I left my Army assignment in the mid-50’s. I found that, unlike most of the Country, Texas had not succumbed to corn and soybean production and maintained most of the land in pasture. The cattle breeds had changed from the traditional Texas longhorn to a variety of meat producing breeds. There were some Jersey but the dominant breed was the Black Angus. Texans unlike those in the great Midwest, and many other areas have preserved their precious land resources and are poised to provide healthy meat products to the rest of the world, which is losing its productive land. Texas, a right to work State, is also financially sound unlike many Union dominated poorly managed States.
