South Central Texas ICA
By Laurie Miller
    The 2019 Annual ICA Convention was held June 19-21 in San Marcos, Texas. The South Central Texas Independent Cattlemen’s Association (SCTICA) chapter was well represented by Wilson County and Atascosa County delegates. SCTICA represents many counties around South Central Texas but the four counties in the charter membership are: Wilson, Atascosa, Karnes and Bexar. Members in counties that do not have chapters are welcome to join SCTICA and are assigned through the state membership.
    A live auction is held during the convention every year and this year James and Debbie Riley from SETICA, won the ATV donated by South East Texas ICA Chapter and the trailer to haul it donated by SCTICA. Several SCTICA members won either a gift certificate or an ICA ice chest in the auction. The auction is the annual fund raiser for the state office.
    Delegates representing SCTICA were Ronnie and Brenda Moore, Pat and Alton Kuykendall,and Weldon Riggs.
    SCTICA members attended the Friday luncheon to show support to Weldon Riggs and Dr. Glen Tate who were named Trailblazers for SCTICA.
    If you are interested in joining or learning more about a cattleman’s group for the whole family, come to our next meeting at the Jourdanton Community Center -Library on Thursday, July 18, 2019. A complimentary meal will be served at 6:30 p.m. followed by a CEU presentation on laws and regulations. Riggs arranged for the speaker and said because it is often difficult to get CEUs on this topic that subject was chosen to present to our members.
    Please RSVP for yourself and your neighbors for the meal count to Gus Gonzalez, 210-275-3133 or A.L. “Windy” Miller 210-215-1139. We look forward to seeing you there.
