ROPESVILLE, TX (KCBD) -

Information provided by Sen. Ted Cruz Press Office

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Sunday kicked off a three-day agriculture tour in West Texas. Sen. Cruz visited with cotton farmers at the Dahlen K. Hancock Family Farm in Ropesville, and on Monday, met with cotton industry leaders at the Meadow Farmers Co-Op Gin in Meadow. Cruz toured the cotton farms and spoke with the farmers about solutions that can help Texas agriculture thrive.

"Agriculture has long been a pillar of Texas’ economy and is an integral part of our proud heritage," Sen. Cruz said. "Texas farmers and ranchers play a crucial role in feeding our state and our nation, and they provide raw materials for thousands of industries across the country and around the world. Unfortunately, the Obama administration has spent eight years limiting choices and imposing costly regulations on Texas’ agriculture industries. We must address the needs of American farmers and tear down regulatory barriers so that hardworking Texans can grow their operations, innovate, and thrive."

Monday afternoon, Sen. Cruz will also visit Bingham Family Vineyards in Meadow and the Del Rio Dairy and Hi Pro Feeds Mill in Friona, followed by a tour of a local maize harvest.
