Agency History

The Texas Department of Agriculture was established by legislation of the 30th Legislature (House Bill 274 and Senate Joint Resolution 13, Regular Session) in 1907. Until then, official agricultural business had been conducted by the Department of Agriculture, Insurance, Statistics, and History. Commissioner Robert Teague Milner was appointed until the 1908 general election could be held. The new agency had a staff of four, including the commissioner. Departmental duties included gathering statistics, publishing agricultural information, and holding farmers' institutes to promote advanced farming methods and practices. Under Milner the agency began to reflect the role it would play as a regulatory arm and advocate for cotton farmers. A cotton bureau was established in 1907 to prevent falsifying the size of Texas cotton crops. In his only report to Governor Thomas M. Campbell, Milner complained that the $17,038 department budget was inadequate. In 1908 Milner accepted the presidency of Texas A&M University. Edward Reeves Kone was selected to take his place and was elected to office in 1908, 1910, and 1912. Kone frequently traveled around the state to talk to farmers. In 1910 he and members of his staff made a 1,280-mile rail tour of Texas to give demonstrations to thousands of farmers and persuaded the legislature to increase the agency's budget to $30,178 for fiscal year 1909-10.

Fred Davis succeeded Kone in 1915 and worked to improve the lot of cotton farmers. Although cotton dominated Texas agriculture, prices paid to farmers rarely covered costs. Davis urged growers to figure expenses and withhold cotton from the market until a fair predetermined price was reached. Though his campaign failed, it helped farmers develop more accurate estimates of production costs. A severe drought in 1917, up to then the driest year in Texas history, added to producers' economic woes. The department recorded crop and livestock losses in two-thirds of the state. Through Davis' efforts the department helped to get farmers who had food and feed to sell in contact with prospective buyers. This project was a forerunner of the agency's direct-marketing program. During Davis' final year in office, 1920, the department had 137 employees in seven divisions and a $225,422 budget.

George B. Terrell, commissioner from 1921 to 1930, increased the department's services to farmers and promoted the state's citrus industry. In 1925 the department's duties were greatly expanded when it assumed tasks previously handled by the Department of Markets and Warehouses, including inspection of weights and measures, operation of the market news service, and supervision of gins, warehouses, and farmers' co-ops (House Bill 2, 39th Legislature, Regular Session, 1925). The marketing bureau encouraged sales of more than $2.5 million in Texas agricultural products by introducing sellers to prospective buyers. Terrell continued a battle begun under Davis against the pink bollworm, a destructive pest that threatened the state's cotton industry. James E. McDonald succeeded Terrell in 1931. During his administration the Low Water Dam and Jacks and Stallions divisions were founded and eliminated. The Low Water Dam Division encouraged farmers to conserve water by building sloughs and ravines. Jacks and Stallions distributed registered and high-grade mules and horses over the state for the purpose of breeding. McDonald's administration also saw the establishment of processing plants for Texas fruits and vegetables and the expansion of the sweet potato, tomato, citrus, black-eyed pea, watermelon, truck-farming, poultry, dairy, and nursery and floral industries. McDonald was reelected every two years until twenty-five-year-old John C. White defeated him in 1950.

In the first major overhaul of the department, White decentralized the agency, initiated the first cooperative effort with Mexico to control insect pests, encouraged state legislation for registration and analysis of agricultural chemicals, and established laboratories to test chemical residues and contaminants before and during harvest. Under White the department inaugurated the Texas Agricultural Products marketing project to promote Texas products. It also began the Family Land Heritage Program, an annual program honoring Texas farmers and ranchers who have worked their land for 100 years or more. From the spring of 1975 to January 1983 the department published TDA Quarterly, a glossy magazine on agricultural issues designed for a popular audience. White resigned in 1977 to become deputy United States secretary of agriculture. Governor Dolph Briscoe appointed Reagan V. Brown to succeed him. In 1978 Brown was elected under the new statute providing four-year terms for statewide elected officials (proposed by Senate Joint Resolution 1, 62nd Legislature, Regular Session, 1971). To prevent the spread of the Mediterranean fruit fly from California to Texas in 1981, Brown required California produce to be fumigated before entering the state. Under special legislation passed during the fruit-fly crisis, the department was authorized to seize or destroy infested products and to stop interstate and intrastate traffic to enforce the law (House Bill 151, 67th Legislature, First Called Session, 1981). Brown also worked to halt the spread of the imported fire ant.

Jim Hightower became the eighth commissioner of agriculture on New Year's Day, 1983. His major initiatives included establishing a state network of farmers' markets and wholesale marketing cooperatives, expanding the program to help producers sell directly in international markets, updating the existing Texas Agricultural Products promotion (renamed the Taste of Texas program), helping farmers and ranchers get financing to build processing and marketing facilities, encouraging new agricultural development of such products as wine grapes and native plants, opening an office of natural resources to work with rural residents and farmers on farmland conservation, rural water quality, and water conservation, and increasing the department's voice in shaping national policies that affect Texas agriculture. In addition, the department's Right to Know Division, established to implement the 1987 agricultural-hazards communication act (House Bill 1896, 70th Legislature, Regular Session), worked to keep farmers and farmworkers informed on hazardous pesticides they might encounter in their work. In 1986 the department began publishing the Texas Gazette, a bimonthly newsletter about department affairs, and the fall of 1987 saw the first issue of Grassroots, an irregularly published serial focusing on the environment and consumer topics. The department also continued its publication of numerous brochures on both specialized and popular topics, ranging from directories of agricultural cooperatives to Texas wines and wineries. In the late 1980s the department had a staff of 575 and administered forty-nine laws that affected numerous agriculture-related matters, including pesticide registration, egg quality, accuracy of scales and gasoline pumps, citrus fruit maturity, seed purity, and fire ant control.

Since the enactment of the Texas Sunset Act in 1977 the Texas Department of Agriculture has been subject to review every twelve years by the Texas Sunset Advisory Commission. When the department came up for its first review in 1989, controversy occurred over the possibility of either making the post of agricultural commissioner an appointed one or eliminating the department entirely. Though eventually the department was continued with an elected commissioner, several changes were implemented in the agency's structure, including the establishment of a nine-member board, chaired by the agriculture commissioner, which was charged with overseeing pesticide regulation (Senate Bill 489, 71st Legislature, Regular Session, 1989). This was an authority that had previously been granted to the commissioner of agriculture alone. In 1994 the commissioner of agriculture was Rick Perry, who defeated Jim Hightower in the 1990 election. The budget for fiscal year 1995 was $21,584,790. At that time the Texas Department of Agriculture had market and regulatory powers and administered over fifty laws. To perform its duties it had five regional centers, seven suboffices, and eleven divisions.

In 1998, Susan Combs, a fourth-generation rancher, was elected the state's 10th commissioner of agriculture and is the first woman to hold this position in the state's history. The department, with headquarters in Austin, has twelve district offices-in Amarillo, Beaumont, Brenham, Dallas, Houston, Lubbock, Odessa, San Antonio, San Juan, Stephenville, Tyler, and Vernon. Its consumer-services division is one of the largest in the state administration. Current duties include promoting Texas agricultural products locally, nationally and internationally; assisting in the development of the agribusiness industry in Texas; regulating the sale, use and disposal of pesticides and herbicides; controlling destructive plant pests and diseases; and ensuring the accuracy of all weighing or measuring devices (such as grocery scales and gas pumps) used in commercial transactions.

TDA includes: five regional centers in Dallas, Houston, Lubbock, San Antonio, and San Juan; four suboffices in Amarillo, Corpus Christi, El Paso, and Tyler; three seed laboratories in Giddings, Lubbock, and Stephenville; six export pens in Brownsville, Del Rio, Eagle Pass, Houston, and Laredo; six Cooperative Inspection Program Facilities in Alamo, Austin, Brownsville, Gorman, Pearsall, and Pleasanton; and a pesticide laboratory in Brenham. Agricultural programs are carried out by the Marketing and Agribusiness Development Division, Pesticide Programs Division, Producer Services Division, and Regulatory Programs Division. Supporting TDA divisions consist of Administration, Communications, General Counsel, Intergovernmental Affairs and Internal Audit. In addition, the Texas Agricultural Statistics Service and the Texas Cooperative Inspection Program are joint federal-state programs operated by TDA and the federal government. The service provides state, district, and county estimates for major field crops, small grains, livestock, fruit, pecans, and vegetables, while the inspection program oversees the quality inspection of fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, and peanuts. TDA also works in conjunction with the Agriculture Resources Protection Authority on pesticide issues, the Texas Boll Weevil Eradication Foundation, Inc. regarding boll weevil eradication, the Texas Food and Fibers Commission on natural fibers development and plant food protein research, and a variety of advisory boards. Finally, TDA administers the Texas Agricultural Finance Authority, which provides financial assistance to agriculture related businesses for the production, processing, marketing, and export of Texas agricultural products.

The materials also include meeting materials from non-Texas organizations with which members of the Department of Agriculture staff were involved or concerned.

Among the other major records series, Producer Board files document the creation, activities, and occasional dissolution of the local Texas producer boards operating under the oversight of the TDA. Boards represented various agricultural products and livestock, addressing subjects such as pests and predators, disease, marketing, education, crop and livestock production, drought, and other topics of concern to each board's particular product. The Reports series includes both budget and market reports. The market reports document the daily demand in Texas for various commodities and include the status of those commodities in other regional markets. Produce covered by the reports includes turkeys, eggs, chickens, rice, fruits and vegetables, grains, watermelon, grain sorghum, and pecans. Litigation files document possible violations of Texas agriculture laws and the restitutions made by the violator, particularly regarding the sale of agricultural products with an expired or invalid license, improper use of pesticides, and investigations of complaints involving the application of pesticides. Speeches and Press releases illustrate the public activities of Commissioners John C. White, Reagan Brown, Jim Hightower, and Rick Perry. Additional information about the agency's operations and functions can be found in the Organization charts, Rules and procedures, and Nuclear waste studies.

A variety of sound, video, and motion picture recordings document many of the activities and public appearances of Commissioners Jim Hightower and Rick Perry. Subjects of the footage include TDA regulatory and promotional activities, TDA offices and other facilities, Texas agricultural products in all phases from field to retailer, tours of agricultural facilities including processing plants, gins, sheds, wineries, etc., press conferences on TDA activities, the State Fair of Texas and other livestock shows, conferences on agriculture-related areas, interviews of Texas producers and others involved in agriculture, and general shots of Texas agricultural areas throughout the state.

Detailed Description of the Records

 

Texas Agricultural Finance Authority minutes, 1988-2001,
0.48 cubic ft.

These records consist of copies of minutes of board meetings and work sessions of the Texas Agricultural Finance Authority, dating 1988-2001. These minutes document the work of the board in administering the programs that provide loans and grants to agriculture-related businesses. Among other things the minutes include summaries of reports and presentations by board members, staff, and other interested parties; requests for discussion, with the ensuing comments; motions made by board members and the results. Minutes are created to document in a thorough but usually summary fashion the official actions of the board in its meetings.
To prepare this preliminary inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine record types.
Historical Sketch
The Texas Agricultural Finance Authority (TAFA) was created in 1987 (House Bill 49, 70th Legislature, 2nd Called Session) as a Public Authority within the Texas Department of Agriculture. TAFA provides financial assistance to to eligible agricultural and non-agricultural businesses in partnership with banks or other agricultural lending institutions through seven programs. Administered by the commissioner of agriculture and governed by a board of directors, the authority provides financial assistance for the production, processing, marketing, and export of Texas agricultural products. The Loan Guaranty Program provides financial assistance through loan guarantees to eligible agricultural businesses that are, or propose to be, engaged in innovative, diversified, or value-added production, processing, marketing, or exporting of an agricultural product or other agricultural-related rural economic development projects. The Direct Loan Program may provide a direct loan to an eligible applicant in cooperation with the applicant's lender. The Loan Participation Program provides assistance to lending institutions for eligible agricultural projects through the purchase of an undivided interest in a loan made by a lender. The Young Farmer Loan Guarantee Program provides financial assistance through loan guarantees to eligible applicants from 18 to 39 years of age who wish to establish or enhance their farm and/or ranch operation or establish an agricultural-related business. The Farm & Ranch Finance Program provides financial assistance to eligible and creditworthy applicants for the purchase of farm land and/or ranch land that will be in full time agricultural use. The Linked Deposit Program encourages private commercial lending at below market rates to eligible applicants for certain projects. Eligible projects include: production of an alternative crop, a value-added project, a project that is located in a USDA- or Presidential-declared disaster area, and a project using water conservation techniques or purchasing water conservation equipment. Finally, the Rural Development Finance Program provides loan guarantees to rural, non-agricultural businesses. The applicants must be located within the state who can provide significant benefits for rural areas, show evidence of creation or retention of employment, and prove evidence of reasonable equity in the project.
The board of the Agricultural Finance Authority is composed of six members: the commissioner of agriculture, the director of the Institute for International Agribusiness Studies of Prairie View A&M University, and four members appointed by the governor (with the advice and consent of the senate) for two-year terms. The governor appoints the chair.

Texas Agricultural Diversification Program Board meeting files and manuals, 1988-1992, 1994,
0.45 cubic ft.

These records consist of minutes, meeting supporting documentation (namely correspondence, memoranda, notes, budget statements, and agenda), and a manual of the Texas Agricultural Diversification Program Board (TADP), dating 1988-1992, 1994. These materials document the work of the board in promoting agricultural diversification in Texas, and include such items as discussion and action on active grants, discussion and action on rules for matching grants, discussion on the awarding of matching grants in each category, updates on sources for Agricultural Diversification Program funds, updates on the linked deposit program and the microenterprise loan program. A majority of the files contain only minutes, a few files contain additional supporting documentation. One of the two manuals, detailing TADP grant procedures, was put together in 1994 by the Texas Agricultural Finance Authority in order to continue the grant program which had, by that time, been taken over by the Department of Agriculture's office of the Assistant Commissioner for Intergovernmental Affairs. The other manual, dating 1992, details the rural microenterprise loan program.
Minutes are created to document in a thorough but summary fashion the official actions of the board in its meetings.
Historical Sketch
The Texas Agricultural Diversification Program Board was created in 1987 by House Bill 49, 70th Legislature, 2nd Called Session, to assist the commissioner of agriculture in the creation and implementation of the agricultural diversification program created by that act. The board's duties included the awarding of grants and the recommendation of additional criteria for awarding grants. The grants awarded by the program included the following: a grant program supporting research and innovation leading to organizational or marketing improvement in businesses based on agriculture, or to the commercialization of new crops, new agricultural products, or new production processes; a business assistance grant program; a grant program to provide seed money for self-financing small business incubators; and a linked deposit program to encourage commercial lending.
The board was composed of eight members: the commissioner of agriculture; the director of the Institute for International Agribusiness Studies of Prairie View A&M University; four members appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the Senate (the governor also appointed one of these members as the chair of the board); one state representative appointed by the Speaker of the House (ex-officio, non-voting); and one state senator appointed by the Lieutenant Governor (ex-officio, non-voting). The appointed members served two-year terms. The board held its last meeting in 1992.
Arrangement
The records are arranged chronologically. The more recent addition of meeting files, containing duplicate copies of the minutes with supporting documentation, has been intellectually integrated into the chronological list. The manuals are listed at the end.

Texas Agriculture Resources Protection Authority meeting files, 1989-1992, 1994-1999, 2001,
1.42 cubic ft.

These records consist of minutes, agenda, transcripts, statements, rules, correspondence, memoranda, notes, photocopied newspaper clippings, drafts, notices of open meetings, and witness logs and registration cards of Texas Agriculture Resources Protection Authority board meetings, dating 1989-1992, 1994-1999, 2001. Among other things, these minutes include summaries of comments on proposed rules, with a record of the board's actions on these rules; summaries of presentations by board members, Department of Agriculture staff, and others; and summaries of public comments before the board on pesticide-related issues. Issues discussed in Authority meetings include various administrative matters, hazardous waste, and the use and regulation of pesticides, particularly chlordane, methyl bromide, and Compound 1080 (for use in rabies control).
Minutes are created to document in a thorough but usually summary fashion the official actions of the board in its meetings.
To prepare this preliminary inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine record types.
Historical Sketch
The Texas Agriculture Resources Protection Authority was created by Senate Bill 489, 71st Legislature, Regular Session, 1989. It is the coordinating body for the policies and programs of pesticide management and regulation conducted by the following Texas state agencies: Department of Agriculture, Department of Health, Natural Resource Conservation Commission, Agricultural Extension Service, Soil and Water Conservation Board, and Structural Pest Control Board. The Authority may promulgate its own rules, and also advises the above agencies concerning any pesticide-related rules that they propose and adopt. In addition, the Authority collects, analyzes, and disseminates information necessary for the effective operation of all existing or proposed programs regulating pesticides; provides professional advice to private agencies and citizens on pesticide-related matters; and advises the governor and the legislature on these issues. The Department of Agriculture provides for the administrative and enforcement functions of the Authority.
The required annual meetings of the Texas Agriculture Resources Protection Authority (the Authority) are to be held on the first Monday of June each year at 10 a.m. at a location designated by the commissioner for use of the Authority unless a different date, hour, or place is specified by request. Alternative annual meetings or special meetings may be called by the presiding officer of the Authority or by a majority of the members of the Authority.
Quarterly reports of agency pesticide regulatory enforcement activities must be submitted to the Authority no later than the 30th day following the end of each fiscal year quarter by the Texas Department of Agriculture, the State Soil and Water Conservation Board, the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, the Texas Department of Health, the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission, and the Texas Structural Pest Control Board. The reports must be in a format and include information prescribed by the Authority, which reviews and makes comments regarding the information provided by the agencies. The agencies receive a copy of any comments made by the Authority on its report and have an opportunity to respond to any comments. In addition, the Authority makes its comments available to the public upon request.
The Authority has enforcement authority over activities that (1) relate to the use or handling of pesticides or pesticide products including the application, loading, storage and disposal of or contamination by pesticides; (2) are in an area over which the agency has the authority to manage, direct, control or set limitations on by promulgation of regulations or otherwise; and (3) are in an area over which the agency has the authority to set penalties for failure to comply with laws or regulations relating to that activity or to compel performance by use of other legal remedies.
Board members include the Texas Agriculture Commissioner, the director of the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station, the dean of the College of Agricultural Sciences of Texas Tech University, the dean of the University of Texas School of Public Health at Houston, the director of the environmental epidemiology program of the Texas Department of Health, the chief of the groundwater conservation section of the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission, the director of the Institute for International Agribusiness Studies of Prairie View A&M University, the executive director of the Texas Structural Pest Control Board, and the executive director of the State Soil and Water Conservation Board. Governor appointees include a person representing consumer interests; an agricultural producer; a commercial, noncommercial, or private licensed pesticide applicator; a pesticide dealer or someone involved in developing or manufacturing agricultural chemicals; a farm worker or a farm worker representative; and a member of an organization primarily engaged in environmental conservation or protection efforts. Board members do not receive compensation for service except for expenses incurred while performing the Board functions. Appointed members serve a two-year term. The governor appoints the presiding officer. Board meetings are held annually and at the call of the presiding officer or a majority of the members. The Authority has no staff, offices, or legislative budget appropriation, instead it relies on the Texas Department of Agriculture for support.
Arrangement
These records are arranged three groups. The first consists of brief summaries of minutes, occasionally including agenda, which the agency transfers fairly regularly. The second contains the full minutes and agenda and occasionally includes transcripts of the meetings. The third group is composed of meeting supporting documentation (containing additional drafts of minutes and agenda) that was filed separately by the agency.

Texas State Seed and Plant Board minutes, 1924-2001,
1.18 cubic ft.

These records consist of copies of minutes of meetings of the Texas Board of Plant Breeder Examiners, dating 1924-1929, and of the Texas State Seed and Plant Board, dating 1929-2001. These minutes include the following kinds of details: results of examinations for qualified plant breeders; lists of applicants for registered breeders licenses (with details, including the results of those applications); reviews of investigations and inspections; lists of approved seed certification inspectors; lists of approved seed processing plants; summaries of reports and presentations to the board; details on appeals; discussions of regulations and standards; requests for certification eligibility of specific new breeds; and other matters coming before the board. Attachments are occasionally included as supporting documentation. Details are often extensive and explicit, although no information deemed confidential (because of being trade secrets, excluded from disclosure by Section 552.110 of the Texas Public Information Act) has been included in the copies transferred to the Archives and Information Services Division of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
Minutes are created to document in a thorough but usually summary fashion the official actions of the board in its meetings.
To prepare this preliminary inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine record types.
Historical Sketch
The Texas Board of Plant Breeder Examiners was created by House Bill 114, 38th Legislature, 2nd Called Session, 1923; its stated purpose was "to safeguard the public in the purchase of pure bred cotton seed." Its name was changed in 1929 to the Texas State Seed and Plant Board, and its authority expanded beyond cotton seed, to all agricultural and horticultural seeds and plants (House Bill 176, 41st Legislature, 1st Called Session, 1929). The board approves and issues licenses for registered and certified seed growers, promulgates rules and regulations governing the producing of Foundation, Registered and Certified seeds, and prescribes the qualifications and approves appointments of inspectors employed under the law. The board also makes final decisions regarding sanctions and disputes concerning seed certification and dispute arbitration.
The Board of Plant Breeder Examiners (and its successor the State Seed and Plant Board) was composed of three persons experienced in the science of plant breeding, appointed by the Commissioner of Agriculture and the President of Texas A&M College. In 1943 membership of the State Seed and Plant Board was modified to include three ex officio members: the chief of the Division of Seed Certification of the Department of Agriculture, the head of the Department of Genetics at Texas A&M College, and the head of the Department of Plant Industry at Texas Tech College.
The current board reflects changes made in 1959 (increasing the membership to five, appointed by the governor), with the addition of one member in 1961. The State Seed and Plant Board is now composed of six members appointed by the governor (with the advice and consent of the senate) for two-year terms, including: the head of the Seed Division of the Department of Agriculture; an individual from the Soils and Crop Sciences Department, Texas Agricultural Experiment Station, Texas A&M University; an individual from the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences, Texas Tech University; an individual who is licensed as a Texas Foundation, Registered, or Certified seed or plant producer (not employed by a public institution); an individual who sells Texas Foundation, Registered, or Certified seeds or plants; and an individual who is actively engaged in farming but not a producer or seller of Texas Foundation, Registered, or Certified seeds or plants (added in 1961). The board elected the chair annually until 1997; now the governor names the chair.

Historical Sketch
The Texas Produce Recovery Fund is a special trust fund administered by the Texas Department of Agriculture, without appropriation, for payment of claims against commission merchants and retailers. The Texas Produce Recovery Fund Board was created by House Bill 1436, 67th Legislature, Regular Session, in 1981 to advise the Department of Agriculture regarding the produce recovery fund. Specifically, the Board is to advise the department on all matters relating to the fund, including budget and revenues; advise on the adoption of rules relating to the payment of claims and administration of the fund; and conduct adjudicative hearings on disputed claims presented for payment from the fund. If the department pays a claim submitted against a merchant or retailer, the merchant or retailer must either reimburse the fund or pay the claimant or suffer the loss of their license.
The Board is composed of six members appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the Senate. Two members are producers, two are commission merchants and retailers, and two are members of the general public. Each member must reside in a different senatorial district and serve a six year staggered term. In order to hold a claim investigation hearing, the Board is required to have a quorum.

The standards must ensure that the burning is the controlled application of fire to naturally occurring or naturalized vegetative fuels under specified environmental conditions in accordance with a written prescription plan designed to confine the fire to a predetermined area and to accomplish planned land management objectives. The standards should also require that at least one certified and insured prescribed burn manager is on site during the conduct of the burn, establish appropriate guidelines for the size of burning crews, and include standards for notification to adjacent land owners, the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission, and local fire authorities.
The Board was established within the Texas Department of Agriculture and is composed of employees of the Texas Forest Service, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, the Texas Natural Resources Conservation Commission, the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station, the Texas Tech University Range and Wildlife Department, the Department of Agriculture, the State Soil and Water Conservation Board, and five individuals who are either owners of agricultural land, self-employed or employed by someone other than a governmental agency, or appointed by the commissioner of agriculture. Each member serves a two year term and the members elect a presiding officer from among their number. The board was to establish an advisory board composed of individuals representing property owners, conservation interests, environmental interests, insurance interests, and agriculture, forestry, and livestock producers.

Texas GO TEXAN Partner Program Advisory Committee minutes, 1999-2001,
fractional

These records consist of copies of minutes of meetings of the GO TEXAN Partner Program Advisory Committee, dating 1999-2001. The minutes, which concern the promotion of Texas agricultural products, are created to document in a thorough but usually summary fashion the official actions of the committee in its meetings.
To prepare this preliminary inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine record types.
Historical Sketch
In 1999 the Texas Legislature decided that the state needed a Texas agricultural product promotion program to increase consumer awareness of and expand the markets for Texas Agricultural products and determined that the Texas Department of Agriculture, through the GO TEXAN Partner Program, program grants and matching funds, was the proper department to accomplish this goal (House Bill 2719, 76th Legislature, Regular Session). The GO TEXAN program was established to encourage the development and expansion of markets through the participation of eligible applicants who provide funds to be matched for promotional marketing programs implemented by the Texas Department of Agriculture. Specifically, the Program is to develop procedures for acceptance and administration of funds received to administer the program; develop application screening and selection procedures; develop a general promotional campaign for Texas agricultural products and advertising campaigns for specific Texas products based on successful project requests; develop advertising programs and promotional materials for use by program participants; contract with media representatives to disperse promotional materials; and receive matching funds and establish internal reporting requirements. For the purposes of the program, an eligible applicant must be a state or regional organization that promotes the marketing and sale of Texas agricultural products and does not stand to profit directly from specific sales of agricultural commodities; a cooperative organization; a state agency or board that promotes the marketing and sale of agricultural products; a national organization or board that represents Texas producers and promotes the sale of Texas products; an eligible small business; or any other appropriate entity. Program monies are maintained in the general revenue fund in the GO TEXAN partner program account.
The Advisory Board is composed of at least eight members appointed by the Commissioner of Agriculture to assist the department in the implementation of the GO TEXAN Partner Program. The members include two individuals from the Texas Department of Agriculture; one representative from the United States Department of Agriculture; one representative each from television, print, and radio advertising media; one representative from the advertising profession; one consumer representative; and other members the Commissioner determines to be necessary. Advisory Board members serve at the pleasure of the Commissioner and without compensation. The Board reviews applications of eligible participants and approve or denies funding, advises the department on matters related to the administration of the account; and advises the department on the adoption of rules relating to the administration of the GO TEXAN Partner Program. The Commissioner provides the Board with staff necessary to assist the Board in fulfilling its duties.
The distinction between GO TEXAN Partner Program Advisory Committee and the GO TEXAN Partner Program Advisory Board is unclear and possibly non-existent.

Pest management committee files, 1977-1989, 1994-1998,
1.5 cubic ft.

Records comprise minutes, agenda, drafts, memoranda, correspondence, financial statements, contracts, complaint and request forms, and lists of attendees of a variety of Texas Department of Agriculture committees and related local non-profit organizations concerned with pest management. The materials range in date from 1977 to 1989 and 1994 to 1998. The records particularly reflect the efforts of the Department, the committees, and the associations to eradicate such pests as aphids, fruit flies, and the boll weevil. Some committees, especially those reflected in the set of minutes and agenda, seem to have been organized for the purpose of pest eradication, many with regional zones of jurisdiction. Earlier, the Department of Agriculture seems to have worked largely with local crop related non-profit organizations and associations to effect the local eradication of pests.
See also the series entitled Producer board files for materials relating to some of the boards listed in the meeting supporting documentation section.
To prepare this preliminary inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine record types.
Arrangement
Files of minutes and agenda are listed first, followed by files documenting regional actions to control pests. The group of minutes and agenda, originally in strict chronological order according to the date of each meeting, were reorganized by organization to facilitate records retrieval by the researcher. The pest control files (transferred by the agency under the title of "meeting supporting documentation") remain in the original chronological order since different committees had very similar names and reorganization might have led to greater confusion. The researcher should note that the state's fiscal year begins runs from September 1st through August 31st.

Producer board files, 1965-1998,
22 cubic ft.

Records comprise correspondence, minutes, agenda, financial statements, hearing transcripts, bonds, oaths, election results, legal documents, press releases, newspaper clippings and pamphlets, ranging in date from 1968 to 1998, that document the creation, activities, and occasional dissolution of the local Texas producer boards operating under the oversight of the Texas Department of Agriculture. The records concern the boards' concerns with administrative tasks such as obtaining certification, developing and managing budgets, assessing fees, and holding local referendums, elections, and meetings. Subjects addressed by the boards include pests and predators, disease, marketing, education, crop and livestock production, drought, and other topics of concern to each board's particular product. Major products represented by the boards include cotton, pecans, wheat, citrus, grain sorghum, corn, peanuts, mohair, rice, and sheep and goats.
See also the series entitled Pest management committees' meeting files for materials related to some of the producer boards listed below.
Historical Sketch
Under Texas' "Commodity Check-Off" law (House Bill 457, 60th Legislature as amended by House Bill 764, 61st Legislature) non-profit agricultural organizations were able to petition the Texas Department of Agriculture to be certified to conduct a referendum among producers of agricultural products. The referendum would determine whether a majority of those producers wished to establish a self-assessment programs to raise funds to conduct programs of research, disease and insect control, education, and promotion designed to encourage the profitable production, marketing, and use of their respective products. Organizations that could prove to have substantial influence with and support of producers were certified in public hearings by the Department of Agriculture to hold the referendums among producers of the product in question. The referendums determined whether or not a producer board was desirable, and if so, who should sit on the resulting boards. Boards were considered quasi-public/private bodies and their budgets were to be approved by the Texas Department of Agriculture. Board members were required to take oaths of office and were considered state employees.
Some boards represented the production of a certain product across the entire state, others simply represented a single county if the production of a certain crop in that county was substantial enough.
Arrangement
Records remain in the original order in which they arrived (somewhat chronologically by board). The records of the specific boards and committees have, however, been listed alphabetically by agricultural product, preceded by a few general files, to aid in the retrieval of records of each particular board. Dates reflect the actual contents of each file, not necessarily the dates written on the file folder, which are frequently inaccurate. Where possible, a basic description of the origins and composition of each board has been provided.

During 1977, the Texas Corn Growers Association of Dimmitt, Texas petitioned the Texas Department of Agriculture under Texas' "Commodity Check-Off" law (House Bill 457, 60th Legislature as amended by House Bill 764, 61st Legislature) to be certified to conduct a referendum among corn producers to determine whether a majority of voters wished to establish a self-assessment program to raise funds to conduct programs of research, disease and insect control, education, and promotion designed to encourage the profitable production, marketing, and use of corn. Certification was originally granted on April 28, 1977 and a referendum was held on July 29, 1977 but it does not seem to have passed. The Association was again certified on December 21, 1979, a second referendum was held on February 27, 1980, and the Texas Corn Producers Board was created. The Board consists of nine members, one third of which are elected biennially for six year terms.

Texas Rice Producers Board
During 1987, the Texas Rice Council and the Texas Rice Research Foundation petitioned the Texas Department of Agriculture under Texas' "Commodity Check-Off" law (House Bill 457, 60th Legislature as amended by House Bill 764, 61st Legislature) to be certified as the organizations to conduct a referendum among rice producers to determine whether a majority of voters wished to establish a self-assessment program to raise funds to conduct programs of research, disease and insect control, education, and sales promotion relating to rice. Certification was granted, the referendum was held and passed on July 31, 1987, and the Texas Rice Producers Board was created. The Board had twelve officers, one-third of whom were elected biennially to serve six year terms.

Texas Sheep and Goat Producers Board
During 1972, the Texas Sheep and Goat Raisers Association of San Angelo, Texas petitioned the Texas Department of Agriculture under Texas' "Commodity Check-Off" law (House Bill 457, 60th Legislature as amended by House Bill 764, 61st Legislature) to be certified to conduct a referendum among sheep and goat raisers to determine whether a majority of voters wished to establish a self-assessments program to raise funds to conduct programs of research, disease and predator control, education, and promotion designed to encourage the profitable production, marketing, and use of sheep and goat products. Certification was granted on January 7, 1972 and the referendum was held but failed to passed in March 1972. A second referendum, however, appears to have been successfully passed in November 1992, and by early 1993 the nine member Texas Sheep and Goat Producers Board was holding meetings and developing bylaws.

Texas Soybean Producers Board
The Texas Soybean Association, an affiliate of the American Soybean Association, was chartered in Texas as a non-profit organization in 1967 for the purpose of functioning to assist programs supporting research, education, and market promotion for soybeans. During 1969-1970, the organization petitioned the Texas Department of Agriculture under Texas' "Commodity Check-Off" law (House Bill 457, 60th Legislature as amended by House Bill 764, 61st Legislature) to be certified as the organization to conduct a referendum among soybean producers to determine whether a majority of voters wished to establish a self-assessment program to raise funds to conduct programs of research, disease and insect control, education, and sales promotion relating to soybeans. Certification was granted on July 20, 1970, the referendum was held and passed, and the Texas Soybean Producers Board was created. The Board had nine officers, three of which were elected biennially to serve 6 year terms. In 1984, due to financial difficulties, the Board asked permission of the Texas Department of Agriculture to reorganize the program by entering into a one-year, potentially renewable, contractual agreement with the American Soybean Association. Independant records of this Board do not seem to appear again in the Department of Agriculture records until the 1992-1993 fiscal year.

Texas Wintergarden Spinach Producers Board
During 1995, the Texas Vegetable Association, established in 1977 to support vegetable research and educational programs and to represent the interests and needs of vegetable producers, petitioned the Texas Department of Agriculture under Texas' "Commodity Check-Off" law (House Bill 457, 60th Legislature as amended by House Bill 764, 61st Legislature) to be certified as the organization to conduct a referendum among spinach producers in the Winter Garden area to determine whether a majority of voters wished to establish a self-assessment program to raise funds to conduct programs of research, disease and insect control, education, and sales promotion relating to spinach. Certification was granted during the summer of 1995, the referendum was held and passed, and the Texas Wintergarden Spinach Producers Board held its organizational meeting in October of that year. The Board had six officers, one-third of whom were elected biennially to serve six year terms.

Texas Turkey Producers Board
During 1970, the Texas Turkey Federation of Bryan, Texas petitioned the Texas Department of Agriculture under Texas' "Commodity Check-Off" law (House Bill 457, 60th Legislature as amended by House Bill 764, 61st Legislature) to be certified to conduct a referendum among turkey producers to determine whether a majority of voters wished to establish a self-assessment program to raise funds to conduct programs of research, disease and insect control, education, and promotion designed to encourage the profitable production, marketing, and use of turkey products. Certification was granted, the referendum was held and passed on July 28, 1970, and the Texas Turkey Producers Board was created. The Board was originally composed of fifteen board members (gradually decreasing), one third of which were to be elected biennially for terms of 6 years. In 1983 the Texas turkey producers voted to discontinue operation of the Texas Turkey Producers Board, its operations were privatized and returned to the Texas Turkey Federation. The Texas Poultry Federation and the Texas Turkey Federation (and Texas Turkey Producers Board) were closely affiliated organizations, in some cases the letterhead of both organizations seems to have been used interchangeably.

Texas Wheat Producers Board
During 1971, the Texas Wheat Producers Association petitioned the Texas Department of Agriculture under Texas' "Commodity Check-Off" law (House Bill 457, 60th Legislature as amended by House Bill 764, 61st Legislature) to be certified to conduct a referendum among wheat producers to determine whether a majority of voters wished to establish a self-assessment program to raise funds to conduct programs of research, disease and insect control, education, and promotion designed to encourage the profitable production, marketing, and use of wheat. Certification was granted, the referendum was held and passed on May 11, 1971, and the Texas Wheat Producers Board was created. The Board was composed of nine board members (later increased to fifteen), one third of whom were to be elected biennially for terms of six years.

Reports, 1951-1990,
14.5 cubic ft.

The records comprise reports, correspondence, memoranda, Attorney General opinions, and worksheets compiled by the Texas Department of Agriculture to document both daily and/or weekly market reports on a variety of Texas commodities from 1951 to 1990 and biennial budget requests, working papers, and cost savings/revenue enhancement plan records from 1969 and 1985 to 1988. The market reports document the daily demand in Texas for each commodity, the weight, sex, size, grade, and quality of the commodity the processors were selecting, the price being paid, any relevant USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture) announcements or releases, and, occasionally, export/shipping statistics and weather reports. For comparison, the reports also include the status of that commodity in other regional markets as the information was made available by leased wire services. Produce covered by the reports includes turkeys, eggs, chickens, rice, fruits and vegetables, grains, watermelon, grain sorghum, and pecans.
Arrangement
These records remain in the order in which they arrived. The budget reports, listed first, are roughly in order by fiscal year and remain in the order received. The market reports have been intellectually arranged roughly by type of commodity. Note that in some cases the titles of reports are very similar, if not identical, but the compiled reports do contain different market reports.

Event briefs, speech outlines, and memoranda are written for the Commissioner's use by TDA staff members. They typically detail time and place of the speaking engagement, the purpose and background of the event, agenda and what points to stress in his speech. Included are speeches to local civic organizations such as chambers of commerce, Lions, Kiwanis, and Rotary Clubs and agricultural organizations such as county farm bureaus and various livestock and produce associations.

Motion picture, video, and sound recordings, 1969-1996 (bulk 1983-1989),
104 cubic ft.

Records include a variety of sound, video, and motion picture recordings consisting of U-matic videotapes, 2 inch and 1 inch reel-to-reel videotapes, Beta and VHS videotapes, 1/4 inch reel-to-reel audio tape, cassette audio tapes, and 16mm motion picture film which document the activities of the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) from 1969 to 1996 (bulk 1983-1989). The bulk of the records are U-matic videotapes produced by the Department of Agriculture from 1983 to 1992. The U-matic videotapes and the other records contain footage recording a wide variety of agricultural-related subjects, events, and people. Included are many of the activities and public appearances of Commissioners Jim Hightower and Rick Perry. Footage from accession 1999/109 (1985-1997) consists exclusively of TDA regulatory and promotional activities, TDA offices and other facilities, Texas agricultural products in all phases from field to retailer, tours of agricultural facilities including processing plants, gins, sheds, wineries, etc., press conferences on TDA activities, the State Fair of Texas and other livestock shows, conferences on agriculture-related areas, interviews of Texas producers and others involved in agriculture, and general shots of Texas agricultural areas throughout the state. All records are unedited.
The U-matic videotapes were received by the Archives and Information Services Division of the Texas State Library and Archives in five separate accessions. The videos in the first two accessions, 1992/295 and 1993/167, were numbered by the Department of Agriculture and are in chronological and numerical order. Not all numbered U-matic videotapes held by TDA were transferred to the Archives. Some videotapes in the most recent accession, 1999/109, are also numbered and are in numerical and chronological order, though the numbering sequence differs from that of the first two accessions. The individual numbers of the U-matic videos sent to the Archives can be found in the respective accession folders. A subject contents list for the videos from 1983-1988 is available in the accession folder for 1992/295, and a subject list by videotape for material in 1999/109 is available in the 1999/109 accession file. There is no subject list available for the numbered videos from 1989 (1993/167). Researchers may contact Archives staff to check the accession folders if a particular numbered video from one of these accessions is desired.
The third, fourth, and fifth accessions, 1994/099, 1997/049, and 1999/109, contained U-matic videotapes, but also 2 inch and 1 inch reel-to-reel videotape, Beta and VHS videotapes, cassette audio tapes, 16mm motion picture film, and 1/4 inch reel-to-reel audio tapes. None of these records were numbered by the Department of Agriculture. Instead, the records are arranged roughly chronologically within each physical type. Each item is also individually listed by title, except for the 1/4 inch reel-to-reel audio tapes. Unidentified and/or undated records are filed last in each box.
The materials were checked to ensure that items exist in boxes as listed, to check dates and sequences, and to make note of future preservation needs. Due to lack of facilities and equipment, however, the footage has not been viewed by Archives staff and, thus, the accuracy of the accompanying subject lists in the accession files cannot be verified.

Photographic materials, 1968-1996,
37.5 cubic ft.

Records consist of contact sheets, negatives, photographs, slides, letters, and a few printed materials and news releases produced by the Texas Department of Agriculture from 1968 to 1996 as a part of its publication development files. The photographic media document the Department of Agriculture's concerns, responsibilities, and events. Also present are some copy photographs of late nineteenth and early twentieth century photographs apparently taken in conjunction with the Family Land Heritage Awards. Letters are from school children thanking TDA personnel for bringing animals and Texas farm products to their schools for demonstrations. Letters and news releases are interfiled with the photographs and relate to events in the photographs. Subjects include livestock, agricultural products, agricultural processing, farmers, ranchers, crops, agricultural equipment, agricultural pests, fairs, meetings, honey bees at work, cotton crops damaged by hurricanes, quilts, farm products, fashions, and the activities of commissioners John C. White, Reagan V. Brown, Jim Hightower, and Rick Perry. Some of the images were probably used in department publications. Some photographs are identified by person, subject, or event.
Arrangement
The 1997 accession of photographs are filed by year or by event and remain in the order received. The materials in the 2001 accession are housed in manila folders and binders, some of the negatives and contact sheets are appropriately sleeved. Where both binders and folders contain materials of a given numbered series, contact sheets will be found in binders while the folders will either be empty or contain the negatives, any printed materials, and any remaining contact sheets. Each set of images has an assigned number: the first two digits are the last two digits of the year in which the images were taken and the last three digits appear to reflect the sequential order in which the images were taken, or possibly processed. The media are in numerical and chronological order. For a more specific listing of box contents for the 2001 accession, the researcher should request access to the original inventory lists contained in the accession file. Archives staff have not verified the accuracy of the original inventory lists.
