Change unites farmers and ranchers

By Julie Tomascik

Seasons come and go. Sometimes all in one day in the Lone Star State.

And they all carry a common theme—constant change.

This year is no different. Full of surprises and the unexpected.

Farm chores, challenges and markets change. So Texas farmers and ranchers have to adapt. They always have. And always will.

They do so through resilience and versatility. They’ve coped with the changes by diversifying.

A new crop, a different breed of cattle or adding technology to improve efficiency. Water conservation through drought-tolerant crops or changing irrigation techniques—all translate to farmers and ranchers adapting to change.

Because nothing ever stays the same in Texas agriculture. Except change.

And that’s motivation for farmers and ranchers. Each day brings an opportunity for growth, knowledge and fulfillment.

Their unwavering optimism is the foundation for their ability to adapt and handle tough challenges—like weather and increased regulations.

Change is the challenge that unites all farmers and ranchers.

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.
