SA to host Hispanic farmers, ranchers

"TMBC is a community-based organization established in 1999 to maintain the health, social, environmental and economic integrity of rural communities along the Texas and New Mexico borders with Mexico," said Omar Garza, chairman of the Coalition.

The “Risk Management through Environmental Stewardship” conference will begin with a networking reception at 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 22nd.

During the four-day event, representatives of Federal and State agencies, industry and academia will present information regarding state and federal farm programs, water issues, food safety, small farm initiatives and financial risk management.

"TMBC has hosted two statewide conferences in Texas,” said Garza. “Due to the success of these events, the TMBC directors decided to go national this year - bringing more people together, broadening our scope and increasing the exchange of ideas through networking and partnership development."

Registration for the conference is $200. For an additional $25 each, conference participants can enjoy a pre-conference tour of historic Missions in the San Antonio area and/or a post-conference tour of an Exotic Game and Wildlife Ranch near Hondo, Texas.

"We are excited about the conference and hope that the event will lay a foundation on which to build an annual enjoyable, educational and mutually beneficial event for Hispanic farmers and ranchers, their families and members of the agriculture industry," said Garza.
