    The Department of Agriculture battling the cattle fever tick

    Wednesday, August 23 2017 8:36 AM EDT2017-08-23 12:36:31 GMT

    Back in December, the Texas Animal Health Commission confirmed the presence of cattle fever ticks in Live Oak County. That led to more than 500,000 acres in Texas to be under fever tick quarantines. State and federal animal control officials say the outbreak of fever ticks is a troubling and costly burden for ranchers, government agencies, and the cattle industry.

    Driving is one of the most dangerous things we do on a daily basis, and it should command our undivided attention. “In 2016 the numbers are crazy.
