Tenaha, population 1,170, is a sleepy stretch of East Texas that smells of its three main industries: cattle, timber, and poultry. The only sit-down restaurant for miles, the Whistle Stop, has a Texas Narcotics Officers Association sticker on the front door, along with a sign that reads We Reserve the Right to Refuse Service to Anyone. Inside, when a newcomer sits down to order lunch on a workday afternoon, locals crane their necks to get a better look. Next door is the towns main tourist attraction, the Tenaha Antique Mall, where a cashier spends her days staring at a rusty Barry Goldwater for President sign and stacks of vintage Coca-Cola bottles; she sells her own tea cakes on the side, in small ziplock bags.

White residents live in homes that range from sturdy brick facades to ramshackle trailers; black residents tend to live in «the Quarters», where the roads are a lumpy mess of silt and rocks, and some houses have limited access to the sewage system. For years, young people of both races have been emptying out of Tenaha.

«There’s not much for our children to do but leave», Marie Crawford, a genteel former city councilwoman, told me recently, as we drove around town in her burgundy van. She has a silver-straight bob and

Feeding pregnant cattle

Every year, I attend a field day hosted by the Government-owned Landcorp called Beef Cows 4 Profit. Its intention is to lift the productivity and profitability of its beef breeding herds by studying its population of around 30,000 Angus cows.

I have found the research tremendously interesting, primarily because the local farm — Takakuri, near Kaeo (the other two are on the East Coast and in South Otago)- is not dissimilar to mine in terms of its climate, terrain, soil types and pasture composition.
