Cattle Branding Fight

NYTimes: In a Beef Over Branding

A Plan to Change the Way Cattle Are Tagged Is Meeting Resistance From Ranchers

Branding day has unfolded this way for generations on ranches all across the West. But ranchers from Colorado to Oregon, from Montana to Texas, worry that the tradition is under threat. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has announced plans to rewrite its regulations so that hot-iron brands will no longer be recognized as an official form of identification for cattle sold or shipped across state lines.

Instead, the USDA wants every cow to have a unique numerical ID, stamped on an inexpensive ear tag, to make it easier to track animals from ranch to feedlot to slaughterhouse.

Think Different for Your Next Vacation: Think Fort Worth

Think Different for Your Next Vacation: Think Fort Worth

by Jennie Canzoneri on May 14, 2011

Here are a few reasons why:

1. The food. We’ve already established I like a good meal, and that certainly doesn’t change when I’m dining out in my own town, but Fort Worth has an eclectic and down-to-earth food vibe that may surprise you. There’s a mix of authentic Western grub and fancier eateries, hole-in-the-wall burger bars on one block and some of the best Tex-Mex I’ve ever had on the next.

Some of my favorite picks include Fred’s Texas Cafe, a bar-type restaurant that has cold beer and live music, Brownstone, the low-key but upscale Southern-inspired restaurant of Top Chef contestant Casey Thompson, and Joe T. Garcia’s, where the ambiance is relaxed and the margaritas are deliciously strong.
