Scott Buckles of Stratford is a member of the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board. In 2011, Scott was elected to represent Area I, which encompasses 49 Soil and Water Conservation Districts in the panhandle and south plains region of Texas. Prior to being elected to TSSWCB, Buckles served 26 years on the board of directors of the Sherman County SWCD. Scott is the managing partner of Buckles Farms. The family operation has been in business since 1917 and currently produces corn, grain, sorghum, wheat and stocker cattle. He is also the co-owner and operator of a crop and aerial spraying service. When Scott has spare time he builds and operates a 1/8th scale railroad. He is always looking for passengers…even the dogs enjoy the rides. When not at the farm he enjoys the cool mountain air in Red River, New Mexico.
