The beauty of Texas agriculture 

By Gene Hall

I am often overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of Texas agriculture. Whether it’s a field of ripening grain, the simulated snow field of cotton bolls, a herd of beef cattle grazing with grass touching their bellies or the majestic grandeur of an East Texas forest, the sights touch my Texas heart. This week, we sent a crew to photograph and film a cabbage harvest.

In the 25 years I’ve headed the Texas Farm Bureau communications effort, many of these sights have crossed my desk and flashed across my computer screen.

These days, as the Internet has become more of a visual medium and Texas newspapers run more pictures, we’ve been devoted to bringing those images to you. Watch for us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Read and see on the pages of Texas’ outstanding community newspapers. Our website at has been redesigned to be visually rich.

We have cameras. We have Texas agriculture. We want you to see it.

The preceding commentary is brought to you by Texas Farm Bureau, the “Voice of Texas Agriculture.” Called “Your Texas Agriculture Minute,” TFB will issue thought-provoking editorials each week—via print and audio—to spark understanding of agriculture in the Lone Star State and its impact on each and every Texan.

You may read this week’s editorial above or listen to the audio version.
