The Legacy of Ranching, a comprehensive exhibit covering some of Texas’ most historic ranching operations and featuring a historical perspective of the Texas A&M University animal science department, is on display at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum through Jan. 7.
The exhibit showcases the rich history of beef cattle production in Texas, which contributes $11 billion annually to the state’s economy and is the second-leading commodity behind oil and gas, said exhibit organizers.
“This is a chance to give a very public view of life in Texas ranching,” said Dr. Penny Riggs, who along with Dr. Russell Cross, both Texas A&M animal science professors, led efforts to assemble the many exhibits that depict the department’s long history.
