Sen. Cruz: We Must Stand with Texas Producers
Wraps up West Texas agriculture tour
CACTUS, Texas – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today concluded his West Texas agriculture tour with final stops at Hilmar Cheese Company and a corn harvest in Dalhart, along with a tour of Cactus Feeders in Cactus.
Since Sunday, Cruz has traveled across the Texas Panhandle meeting with various agriculture industry leaders and operators to better understand their needs. Sen. Cruz’s tour has included meetings with cotton, wine and grape, dairy, livestock feed, and corn producers.
“Agriculture is a staple of Texas that reaches every corner of the state and offers tremendous opportunities for economic growth,” Sen. Cruz said. “Unfortunately, it’s clear that Texas farms, many of which are small businesses, have felt the ill effects of the Obama administration’s onerous regulations and weak economy. We must stand with Texas producers and continue to work toward solutions that lighten the burden imposed on America’s farmers, enabling them to do what they do best: create jobs, spur economic expansion, and feed the nation.”
