Saddle up, Houston!

by Heather Kushnerick, Special Collections Librarian

It’s almost rodeo time! The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is February 25 – March 17 this year. Be aware of the parade that goes through downtown Saturday February 23, and check for street closings. Also, if you see what appears to be a trail ride, don’t spook the horses.

In honor of mutton busting, the calf scramble, and over 80 years of supporting education, facilitating better agricultural practices, and being the largest livestock show and rodeo in the world, the Fred Parks Law Library brings you Land & Cattle, a display of selected materials on farm law, animal law, agricultural law and, yes, cowboy law. These items will be on display in the second floor library lobby until March 18, 2013.
