From sausage to brisket,
CVICA prepares
 and serves
Fayette County Fair Jr. Commercial Heifer Show and Sale was postponed this year to September due to the recent floods from Hurricane Harvey. 
On one day’s notice, the "Cookin’ Cattlemen," the Colorado Valley Indepen-dent Cattlemen’s Associa-tion (CVICA) directors and officers were asked to BBQ over 500 links of sausage for exhibitors, consignors and buyers on sale day. The crew received many compliments for a job well done. 
CVICA’s “Cookin’ Cat-tlemen,” under the direction of Bruce Dopslauf, chief cook, and Patrick Janda cooked and served brisket to several hundred cattlemen and their wives at the All Breed Bull & Female sale in Gonzales, at JB Wells Park recently. This year’s annual event brought in over $760,000.

Howdy folks! We have been blessed with some great weather and rain recently in our area. Hoping that the weather holds tight and it stays fall for a while.  The green grass is a beautiful sight to see. 
Our next chapter meeting will take place in 2018. We want everyone to enjoy the holidays and time with their families.  We will get together after the holidays. We are still searching for a new location for the meeting, and have a few ideas up our sleeves.  If you have any ideas for speakers or locations, please send them our way.
The ICA All Breed Bull & Female Cattle Sale took place Friday, Oct. 20th, at JB Wells Park in Gonzales, Texas. We had the largest offering of bulls and females to date. The selection was stout and all in all the sale was a great success. Thank you to all consignors and buyers, as without you our sale wouldn’t be what it is.
If you know of any cattlemen or women, tell them about ICA.  Explain what we do for ranchers around Texas and invite them to join us at our next meeting.  The ICA is a great voice and vehicle for legislation for farmers, ranchers, and cow/calf producers.  If you don’t know what we do, call me at (512) 217-5049 or our state office anytime at (512) 620-0162.  We would love to visit with you or anyone interested in becoming a member. 
As always, pray for our nation!

The quarterly meeting of the South Central Texas Independent Cattleman’s Association (STICA) was held in Falls City at the Community Center on Oct. 24th.  
Gus Gonzalez, president, welcomed all present. Director Weldon Riggs said the prayer and Direc-tor Dickie Jackson led the Pledge of Allegiance.  Brenda Moore, treasurer, gave an updated treasurer’s report.  Gonzalez updated members on the ongoing scholarship fundraising. Door prizes were handed out and a complimentary fajita dinner was served along with desserts from various chapter members.  
The guest speaker for the evening was Gonzales County Extension Agent, Dwight Sexton.  His presentation was on winter forage and fly control in livestock, for which CEUs were offered. 
Director Kristi West announced she is working with the State ICA to increase public awareness of the importance of proper disposal of plastic bags to prevent death in livestock if ingested. West also reported on the SCTICA chapter’s donation of fence posts to ranchers who lost fences as a result of the hurricane in the Rockport area.  
Brad Cotton reported on the recent ICA cattle sale in Gonzales, Texas.  
Gonzalez adjourned the meeting. The next quarterly SCTICA members meeting will be held in January in Wilson County.
