Around The Caprock: Feb. 15-19

Updated: Mar 15

This week's editions of Around the Caprock on the Texas Farm Bureau Radio Network were highlighted by a variety of insights from area ag professionals as the Texas High Plains fought its way through a brutal chill that delivered a week or more of sub-freezing temperatures, a lot of ice, mounds of snow and rolling power blackouts.

During the week, we also received an encouraging outlook for U.S. beef exports and learned that various factors might mean more cattle coming to area feedyard.

Links for each of this week's reports are provided here:

Monday, Feb. 15 - Big things are expected this year for U.S. beef exports. Guest: Joe Schuele, U.S. Meat Export Federation

Tuesday, Feb. 16 - As our region plunged into a prolonged freeze, the stress of the ordeal was perhaps felt most acutely by local ranchers - especially those involved with calving. Guests: Ochiltree County Extension Agent Scott Strawn and Claude area rancher Rachel Myers.
