News from your International Texas Longhorn Association
From ITLA President Mike Tomey 

I hope the weather hasn't been too bad in your area. This winter we have been very cold in Indiana, below zero one week then up in the 50's the next. Spring will be here soon and I can't wait till the grass is green and the new calves are being born. 

I feel so lucky to live the life I do. Every spring is a new beginning, seeing the crop emerge from the ground, new calves and foals running in the pasture and the smell of fresh cut hay. This is the life!!!

The same for ITLA, the new year is full of excitement, all the sales and show will be starting up soon. So, get up, get out and get involved with your local affiliates, pick out your show calves and go have some fun at the shows and sales. It is a great way to promote your program and make new friends.

The ITLA membership directory will also be out very soon. Thank you to all of you who made it possible with your ads and all your hard work. 

Jamie and I will see you down the road.  
Thank you,

Mike Tomey

Raising Quality Texas Longhorns in the Midwest

Midwest Texas Longhorn Association is having their first meeting of the year on February 11, 2108 at the Beef House in Covington, IN at 11:00 am. 

Dr. Michael Meade 
The agenda includes talking about the show and a presentation on herd health, by Dr. Michael Meade DVM. Dr. Meade will be talking about total herd health discussing the main cattle problems in Indiana; what to look for, how to prevent them for calves and mature animals. He will then point out potential problems due to illness or injury, how to treat and when a vet should be called. 

Bring your questions, cattle ranchers from full time down to just an animal or two, this will benefit all. Also pass this on to your neighbors and friends who are concerned about the health of cattle, they are more than welcome to attend whether they are members or not. 

RSVP to Courtney Tomey at 812-797-8609 if you plan to attend so they can get an accurate count for the restaurant. Hope to see you there.

MTLA President,

Chewing the Cud

A blonde and a redhead have a ranch, and unfortunately, their favorite bull just passed away. 

The women need to buy another, but they only have $500. The redhead tells the blonde, "I will go to the market and see if I can find one for under $500 . If I can, I will send you a telegram." 

She goes to the market and finds one for $499. Having only one dollar left, she goes to the telegraph office and finds out that it costs one dollar per word to send a telegraph. She is stumped on how to tell the blonde to bring the truck and trailer. 

Finally, she tells the telegraph operator to send one word: "comfortable." 

Skeptical, the operator asks, "How will she know to come with the trailer from just that word?" 

The redhead replies, "She's a blonde so she reads slow: 'Come-for-ta-bull.'"
