    Notesfrom the EditorI hope you enjoy the 2014 CA$H COWS feature in this

    issue. I am astonished with the total number of head andprices these Longhorn cattle received this past year. The 141total head brought close to 3 million dollars into the Long-horn industry. I want to thank everyone from the differentsales and sales management for their help in gathering infor-mation for this special section.

    The February Trails magazine will feature Herd Sires of theLonghorn industry. I hope you will be a part of this issue andpromote your bull and breeding program by advertising. Spe-cial rates will apply to this issue, so check out page 62 for theseprices.

    The new TLBAA website will be launched in early 2015,and the staff is working hard on the content and design. Wewill be offering new advertising rates and ad placement op-tions on the website. Stay tuned for more details. Dont for-get our social media campaign is under way with our presenceon Instagram and Twitter - check us out!

    As always, I encourage you to email, fax or mail your com-ments and suggestions to continue moving the Trails maga-zine in the right direction for our members and readers.

    We look forward to the new year!

    See you down the road!

    Happy New Year! As I write this column, I have been thinking about resolutionsfor the coming year. Not about the typical resolutions such as losing 10 pounds,cutting out sweets from my diet-you know, the kind of resolutions we all usuallymake.

    No, my resolutions are focused on TLBAA. I resolve to increase membership andregistrations by ten percent. I resolve to make TLBAA events a true showcase andreflection of the Longhorn industry. I resolve to explore every avenue possible toincrease the revenues in the TLBAA Foundation, build the Building Fund andwork toward the dream of a beautiful and educational Museum.

    The staff and I are excited about this months Longhorn Weekend! We believe itwill be a weekend full of fun, fellowship and the exchange of ideas toward fulfill-ing the Boards goals for the coming year. I encourage everyone reading this nowto make plans to attend. We have an excellent lot of consignments for the EddieWood Cowtown Classic premier Longhorn Sale, more than 100 entries for theLonghorn portion of the Fort Worth Stock Show and a fabulous location for ourmembership meeting and awards banquet.

    I believe 2015 will be an exciting year for the TLBAA. With the experienced leader-ship of our Board of Directors combined with the dedication and passion for theLonghorn breed from our membership, I feel confident my New Year resolutionswill come to fruition.

    In your service,

    Barbara Linke, President & CEO
