I began the day in Lubbock at the National Ranching Heritage Center speaking with faculty and staff from the Texas Tech College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. The group is getting together for their annual retreat.
The topic I was asked to speak on was, "The Face of Agriculture and Natural Resource in 2050." Since we didn't have 30 days to talk about all that entails, I focused on the fantastic job Tech is doing to equip our youth and how we must address the competitive global marketplace if we are to ensure continued domestic food and fiber production.
