The cowboy hats were very visible at the Florida state capitol today as members of the Florida Cattlemen’s Association were on hand to talk with legislators. And while there they were able to see part of the legislative session as lawmakers convened this afternoon to talk about some of the issues before the state government.

Knowing that proposed budget cuts to various aspects of agriculture are among some of the concerns of cattlemen, I was able to talk with Commissioner of Agriculture Charles Bronson who told me it’s still a question as to how this is all going to play out while Jim Strickland, President-elect of the Florida Cattlemen’s Association, said whether it’s the budget or any of the other many issues discussed, this was a very important visit for those in the state’s cattle industry.
