Just Your Standard Bull...

published: November 27th 2020

This weeks’ issue of the Southern Livestock Stand-ard will feature a new column called Texas Trails. We want to extend a warm welcome to Clay Cop-pedge. Clay has been a fixture in Central Texas for some time, working as a sportswriter, feature writer and reporter. He has been published in a wide variety of newspapers and magazines, including Acres USA, Austin Sun, Austin Chronicle, Elysian Fields Quarterly, Field & Stream, Houston Chronicle, Pro-gressive Farmer, Texas Fisherman, Texas Golfer, Texas Co-op Power, Texas Highways and others. He's the author of four books of Texana for History Press and Loaded South: A Taxi Memoir. He lives and writes near Walburg, Texas - a suburb of Georgetown!
    So, the lineage goes from Jack Macguire, who started us off with his Talk of Texas column in the early years of publishing our newspaper. He was then followed by Mike Cox and his column Texas Tales. Now to Clay Coppedge and Texas Trails! Clay has big boots to fill, but from what we have seen and read, Clay is gonna do just fine. We think you will enjoy his work. Texas is rich in its history, tales and bigger than life icons, and Clay will bring it all to life in a rich and entertaining way.
    It is really hard for me to believe, but here we are nearing the end of one of the craziest years we have ever seen. It’s been a Covid year, an election year. A year of volatile calf and fed cattle markets. Sometimes it gets difficult to see a path through it all, until we remember. It is the time of Thanksgiving. And most of all, we are thankful that God is in control and He has a plan. Trusting in Him is our way through. Happy Thanksgiving!
