Cattle graze alongside storage tanks on a drilling pad on McCurdy Road in Cuero. DeWitt County, one of Texas' top producers of cattle, saw 125 applications to drill oil wells in 2010, 102 of which were for horizontal drilling, used for production of the Eagle Ford Shale, said Daryl Fowler, DeWitt County judge.
