GATESVILLE — Coryell County residents will decide in November whether livestock should be allowed to roam on open range or be restricted to fenced enclosures.

Should stock owners be required to keep their cattle fenced in, or should their neighbors be required to keep the cattle fenced out?

        Well I don't understand whats the issue... I had a problem back when Sheriff Kitchens was in office where a deputy threatened to arrest my cattle for getting on a neighbors place. After searching the State Ag codes it became apparent that the status of "Open Range" is a matter determined by a state wide Freeholder election so unless the State holds one seems that any county proposition just contradicts that and should not be valid. Maybe instead of complaining you should just take a few minutes to run the cattle back as they usually know where they live and got out. Then advise the land owner or the County as I have done over the years on many occaisions...
