August FCW Report

By now, the novelty of swimming and summer has worn away and most of us are looking forward to fall. In a few short weeks, kids will return to school (and all the parents said Amen) and soon after we’ll celebrate the start of the 2015-16 college football season. The latter has me thinking about a coach’s work during the off-season. Much like a team’s

Reyna Hallworth, FCW President

I was recently reminded of the John Maxwell quote: “Change is inevitable, growth is optional.”  How is FCW growing to keep beef promotion and education efforts relevant in our ever-changing society?  We as members have changed, too.  What growth needs to occur for the association to meet the needs of the membership?

While there were very few ag bills passed despite hard work and good legislation on the part of the agriculture industry, I greatly enjoyed watching and being a part of the process. I would like to commend our Brevard County cattleman, Speaker Steve Crisafulli, on a job well
