Madison County Farm Bureau

Madison County Farm Bureau is a non-profit, agricultural organization that seeks to promote agriculture within the county. We do that through community involvement, donations, scholarships, livestock show purchases and by working with Texas Farm Bureau.

Operating as usual


Effective Sept. 1, 2021, HB 365 amends the Farm Animal Liability Act (FALA) to expand liability protection for routine/customary activities on a farm, handling and managing farm animals, and ranching activities.

Farm animal professionals, farm and ranch owners, and lessees must post and maintain a sign on the premises with the new statutory language in a clearly visible location on or near the stable, corral, or arena where the farm animal activities are conducted.

Texas Farm Bureau has signs available. They are 11” x 14” and made of a metal composite material.

[06/21/21]   Friends: By now you may have read or heard that the Texas Supreme Court declined to hear the Miles Case, which is the landmark case that while tied to the Texas Central Rail High Speed Rail project, also has wider implications in regards to private property rights and eminent domain abuses.

Below is what Judge Trey Duhon, the new president of Texans Against High Speed Rail, stated:

"We are profoundly disappointed in the Texas Supreme Court’s recent decision to deny Jim & Barbara Miles’ Petition for Review with the Texas Supreme Court. TAHSR will be filing a Motion for Rehearing in this matter.
It is difficult to imagine that we have reached a point in Texas, where someone can file a couple of pages of documents with the Secretary of State, call themselves a “railroad” without so much as owning a train or any tracks, and by doing so be able to exercise the power of condemnation on Texas citizen’s private property…. This is inexcusable.
And to be clear, this is nowhere close to being the end of the fight…. The end of this fight is still years away. Texas Central Railway does not have the funding to build this train (as evidence by their complete flip-flop on their representations for YEARS that this project would be completely privately financed). They now have their hand out asking for YOUR federal tax dollars to make their boondoggle viable…. Texas citizens have seen firsthand the biggest bait and switch ever perpetrated on this scale (on a project that has gone from projected costs of $12B to $30 BILLION+).
The Federal Railroad Administration conducted an entire Environmental Impact Assessment that was PREMISED on the project being privately financed. Otherwise, the FRA would have also looked at the feasibility of the project as well. And NOW, after the Environmental Impact Statement has been approved, TCR does a complete 180 and now wants federal tax dollars to fund their pie-in-the-sky project, so they can completely destroy thousands of Texans’ homes, farms, and ranches. Under any other type of scenario - this would be called FRAUD. Fraudulent Inducement. This is where you say or represent something to someone to induce them to act a certain way, and that representation is in fact FALSE. This is what TCR did. They have only raised a small fraction of the $30B they need to construct this project. This is because the private market and investors KNOW this is a project destined to FAIL.
Texans should not stand for this. TAHSR will continue to fight this battle on many fronts. TCR has not yet even filed an Application with the Surface Transportation Board (STB) to obtain a permit to begin construction on this project, despite their false representations to members of Congress that their project is “shovel ready”.
Texans need to channel this frustration and anger at the lack of protection in Texas for private property owners by contacting their state elected officials and our federal officials (Congressman and Senators) to demand more protection for Texas property owners. TCR should not be allowed to perpetrate this FRAUD on Texans. TCR should NOT be allowed to obtain ONE DIME of federal assistance after REPEATEDLY telling Texans AND federal authorities that this project would be PRIVATELY FINANCED for several years. This project should live or die on the private market. It is time to hold our state and federal officials accountable for whether or not they will stand idle while this FRAUD is perpetrated on our citizens. It is time for action by all of you that still believe in the importance of private property rights. Our officials need to hear from us. And we need to keep contacting them until they acknowledge that we the people fully expect to be protected from snake oil salesmen disguised as a “railroad company”.
It is past time that someone other than TAHSR stand up for property owners in Texas. We need to make our expectation crystal clear to those we have elected, which includes the Texas Supreme Court.
This fight is far from over…."

I am asking that everyone that values private property protections over those that abuse eminent domain law, contact the Texas Supreme Court as well as our local, state, and federal elected officials and urge them to hear this landmark case in the interest of all Texans. I would also ask that you contact the Texas Farm Bureau headquarters and ask them to assist us in this endeavor as well.

Please let me know if you have any questions,

Gene Whitesides , Texans against high speed rail
