Executive Director’s Report

published: May 29th 2020
by: Bill Hyman
source: ICA Of Texas

We will miss everyone this year since there will be no statewide convention. We will still hold the Drawdown for a Can Am HD 800 side by side and a trailer donated by the Southeast Texas ICA, Can Am, and the South Central Texas ICA. Every 25th ticket drawn will receive $200. The last numbered ball in the hopper will win the Can Am and trailer. Last year’s winners, James and Debbie Riley will be on hand to help run the Drawdown. The drawing will be delayed until June 30. We will hold the drawing at the office and the winners will be announced on our website and thru an eblast. Tickets are still available by calling the office or from our state directors. Tickets are $75.00 or two for $125.00. If you want, come by and watch the drawing or check in online during the evening as we will start the Drawdown around 6:00 p.m.
    There will also be an auction for several items on S C Auctions online at scsalesonline.com.  The auction will start the morning of June 30 and end at 8:00 p.m. that night. You can register and bid online at scsalesonline.com or call the office 512-620-0162 until 8:00 p.m. to place your bid. So far we have: a Heli-Hog hunt for two donated by Bob and Dana Nunley; a management whitetail hunt donated by the Nunley Brothers; a Randy Bush handmade knife donated by me; a T-Shirt quilt donated by Carilyn John; and two processed quarters of prime beef donated by Brad Cotton. We are expecting more items to be donated, so save the date for that event as we are expecting some exciting items.
    The USDA has finally released the program for beef producers affected by the current pandemic. I am certain it will assist cow/calf producers, but the cattle feeders will end up with much of the funds. Because of the sheer numbers of fat cattle processed during the past five months and the fact that most cow/calf producers sell their calves in the fall, USDA will send a large part of the $5.9 billion to the feeders. 
    If you are not receiving our ICA weekly eblasts it is because we don’t have your email. Each week we have the market reports from over nine auctions around the state along with up-to-date news about the cattle industry. Please call the office to make sure we have your email address. Please stay safe and God Bless.
