Agriculture on display

By Gene Hall

This is a great time of year to see the sights and sounds of Texas agriculture. And you can see them under a roof!

I'm describing the various stock shows and rodeos that dot the calendar right now. There are many big shows in Fort Worth, San Antonio and Houston. And there are many county livestock shows to choose from. Take a look. Hopefully, one of these opportunities is in your area to enjoy.

There’s nothing like it. Agriculture is on display at these shows. From the youth and adults who care for and show their livestock. To the scores of volunteers who make the shows possible. Don’t forget the exhibitors who showcase their products and services.

The sights and sounds of each show make them unique. You can't help but feel the energy and enthusiasm when you’re around. Walk the aisles in the livestock barns. Visit with some of the families who are part of agriculture. You’ll be inspired. You’ll be proud of our farm and ranch heritage.

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.
