Letter from the Editor

Hello readers, and welcome to the June issue of North Texas Farm and Ranch magazine.

You may notice a change in the way this issue looks and feels in your hands. In the last few years, every aspect of our economy has been impacted by the chain of supply and demand, including the printing industry. Due to the paper shortages, we made the necessary decision to switch NTFR magazine to a paper that is readily available from our printer.

This change allows us to continue serving our readership as we cover topics affecting those in agriculture across North Texas. While the touch of the paper might feel different, its pages will remain rich in relevant, quality content from our contributors with advertisements fulfilling the needs of our farmers and ranchers. We look forward to continuing to deliver NTFR to you, our readers, far into the future.

Speaking of the future, this month’s profile is a prime example of the great things that lie ahead. Meet our double feature, Texas Area IV Representative Ryan Hess and Area V Representative Gunnar Griggs-Bell. Both areas cover North Texas and we could not share one of these amazing leaders without the other. Both are passionate about advocating for the members of FFA and the agricultural industry, right now as FFA leaders and later in their careers. No doubt both are destined for greatness, and I hope you enjoy reading their story.

Our contributors are also full of educational and inspiring content for your summer reading. If you have any stories you would like to see in NTFR, I would love to hear from you. Email editor@ntfronline.com.
