OGLESBY, TX — The Barnard Cattle Company has struggled just like any business during the pandemic. Owner Blayr Barnard says she's seen the market for beef drop 30%. "Agriculture has been hit in the local pandemic, we've been selling freezer beef to people at cost." Barnard said. Even through their own business struggles, they chose to adopt 60 high school seniors from Crawford and Oglesby ISD. "They're not getting their senior parties or their graduations and that's gotta be, even their prom was canceled, that's gotta be terribly sad for them," Blayr said. Using the land from their cattle ranch, they decided to throw a socially distanced party.
