By CHARLEY ROBINSON

It was just another day at work Thursday when Joe Hargrove took a few moments to allow the Uvalde Area Chamber of Commerce and many friends and customers to honor him and Southwest Livestock Exchange’s 50th Anniversary.

It was a sale day, and there was work to be done.

Fifty years ago, Hargrove had a vision, and on Saturday, Feb. 25, 1967, he and his two brothers, Darrell and Neil, held the first auction of the Southwest Livestock Exchange, Inc. at the location on Highway 55 northwest of Uvalde.
