No better time to show the Hassler siblings of Jackson County proudly standing by their cattle than #NationalBeefMonth. The year was 1940. The Lone Star State was sparsely populated, with most Texans living on farms and ranches in rural small towns.
Did you know… More people lived in New York City at this time than the entire state of Texas? About 40% of adults had a high school diploma, and only 1 in 5 owned an automobile. One in 10 had access to a telephone and one in six owned a radio.
While much of technology has changed the way we communicate and operate every day, the goal for Texas farmers and ranchers remains the same: provide for the world. From the Houston Rodeo to the South Texas citrus crops, AgriLife Extension has worked to extend service to every Texan for over 107 years.
