Texas Leads the nation in…
Ok, so maybe this isn’t surprising but it’s still remarkable that Texas contributes $10.5 billion worth of cattle to the national economy every year!
That’s right, the largest producer of cotton in the United States is the Lone Star State!
Texas produces over a billion dollars worth of hay per year.
Yep! Texas produces more of these cute little guys than anyone else!
Farms & Ranches
Again not surprising but the numbers ae staggering, Texas has 248,800 farms and ranches comprising 130.2 million acres! And 98.6% of those farms and ranches are family owned!
So maybe some of those aren’t all that surprising but the numbers are simply staggering!
