Richard Thorpe Elected New President of TSCRA


The Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association named Richard Thorpe its new president during the closing session of the 139th annual Cattle Raisers Convention, April 10.




The Winters, Texas rancher was first elected a TSCRA director in March 2006. He most recently served as the first vice president alongside Pete Bonds, Saginaw, Texas.




“TSCRA has been critical to the strength and stability of the cattle industry for well over a century,” Thorpe said. “It is truly an honor to serve and lead this organization in my new role as president. Also, I appreciate Pete for his leadership and commitment to TSCRA. Most importantly, I thank my family for always supporting me. I look forward to all that’s ahead for this incredible association.”




Thorpe, his wife Karen and their family, own and operate Mesa T Ranch headquartered in Winters. The Thorpe’s operate a cow/calf operation as well as stockers and quarter horses. Thorpe also earned his medical degree from Texas Tech University.
