ESSAGE

Dear Fellow Cattlemen e have suffered many losses in our ranks over the past several weeks. Our thoughts, prayers and hugs go out to all their loved ones and friends.

W

One of those losses hit close to home for me. NMCGA Past President and 2005 Cattleman of the Year, Jimmy R. Bason, left us the week that our country celebrates its independence. Jimmy and his compadres like Charlie Lee, Bob Jones, Dick Manning, Tom Linebery, Bud Eppers, Peter Mocho and others have left a pretty large whole to fill and a strong model to follow. Jimmy’s first question to me was “Do you tie on hard and fast or do you dally?” That led to the explanation about commitment and that if you are going to be active in NMCGA are you going to stay involved through the tough times or will you let your dally go when the wreck begins? Jimmy had strong character and never backed away from anything that he believed in. Jimmy tied on. He expects the same from the rest of us. Later when trying to avoid going to a meeting due to things that needed to be done at the ranch he would ask “what makes your cows more important than mine?” He always had a unique perspective to the issues and he wasn’t shy about sharing them. As we pause to say farewell to our friend, mentor and leader let’s remember particular times that Jimmy made a significant impressions on our lives. Those that had the privilege of being at his ranch will remember fondly Jimmy’s favorite places on the ranch like the spring that you could not drive to. I am honored to be on the list that he shared that special place with. The bottom line is that Jimmy and others trained us well. They cut the train. Now it is more than ever our responsibility to pick up where they left off, honoring their memory by ensuring that we keep our values, our ranches and our country alive and well. Thankfully some parts of the state have had good rains and that is encouraging. I had hoped by the writing of this letter we could say the rains had blessed us all but unfortunately that is not the case yet. Times are still tough and it calls for tough decisions. Only those of us in the business know how emotional and heart breaking it is to load on a truck a lifetime of investment and generations of genetics and wonder why it hurts so bad and still know we have done all we can do. We had a highly successful summer meeting and it was great to be among friends. Thanks to all who participated. Let’s celebrate with those that have had rain. Let’s encourage those that haven’t. NMCGA membership continues growing. Let’s celebrate that as well. Stay tied on!!!

Another Federal Government Cover-up? by KAREN BUDD-FALEN / BUDD FALEN LAW OFFICES / CHEYENNE, WYOMING his is a plea for help, to raise awareness and public outcry regarding yet another federal government coverup. The scandal — the Justice and Treasury Departments’ refusal to inform the American taxpayer how much, and for what, their tax dollars are being spent and despite individual well-meaning Congressmen, the inability of Congress to put forth legislation that requires this information to be available to the American public. How can there be reform of a crisis (or how can radical environmental groups prove that our claims of abuse are blown out of proportion) without transparency

T

and an accounting? According to a study from Drexel University, there are 6,500 national and 20,000 local environmental organizations with an estimated 20-30 million members. This study opines that the “environmental movement” dwarfs other modern social movements such as the civil rights or peace movements. Because it would be impossible to study all 6,500 national groups, we reviewed all the federal district court complaints over a series of years for just three of these groups and found: ■ Thirty-five percent (35 percent) of federal court complaints are filed ONLY based on a missed procedural step under the National Environmental Policy Act (“NEPA”); ■ Twenty nine percent (29 percent) of federal court complaints are filed ONLY

based upon missed timelines under the Endangered Species Act (“ESA”): ■ Eleven percent (11 percent) of all federal court complaints are filed because of a failure to complete the process for considering an action under “Section 7” of the ESA. Importantly, these are not cases where the federal court can rule that there is harm to the environment or that additional substantive actions are necessary; the ONLY thing a court can do is send the case back to the federal government for more process. But that is not why this litigation is filed: litigation is filed because the courts have the power to delay private lives and livelicontinued on page <None>

hoods while the federal government completes more process. The harm to American families is not whether the federal government can comply with a process, the harm is in the endless delay in issuing a decision so that America can move forward. It is redtape at its best, and radical environmental groups are absolutely making the most of the red-tape and killing American families in the meantime. Let me give you more details: As stated above, this firm reviewed the federal court complaints to analyze the underlying claims each of their cases; the families that are being targeted by the litigation; and what a federal court could do to grant the relief requested. Over 400 fed-

eral court complaints were individually analyzed filed by either the Western Watersheds Project (“WWP”), WildEarth Guardians (“WEG”) or the Center for Biological Diversity (“CBD”). WWP’s Policy Memos list as a “to do” “Get all cows and sheep off federal lands ASAP!” The WEG uses “ litigation, science, public outreach and organizing, the media, and lobbying” to make progress towards their goals of phasing out fossil fuels, obtaining formal listings of species under the Endangered Species Act; ensuring public lands “are not destroyed” by “over development, over grazing, or natural resource extraction.” CBD is noted as a group that uses litigation and petitions to “effect change.” Its campaigns include listing species, stopping unsustainable human population growth and species extinction crisis and

opposition to motorized recreation. For these groups, we documented: The National Environmental Policy Act (“NEPA”) is the litigation tool of choice for the WWP and CBD, with 58 percent and 36 percent of their complaints respectively including a NEPA claim. NEPA is a process; according to the Supreme Court, NEPA’s purpose is “to ensure a fully informed and well-considered decision, not necessarily a decision the judges of the Court of Appeals or of this Court would have reached had they been members of the decision making unit of the agency.” Thus, the courts enforce the NEPA process, but rarely over turn the substance of the federal agency decision. The problem however is that the courts continued on page 18

are willing to enjoin or stop a project or decision until the federal government complies with the NEPA process. So what does this mean for American families? Consider that 89 percent of the federal district court complaints filed by WWP directly attack livestock grazing by claiming a violation of a NEPA procedure and then seeking to stop (temporarily or permanently) a rancher’s use of the lands he has used for generations because the federal government violated the NEPA process. NEPA is a powerful hammer to eliminate these families because if they rely on the federal government to make a decision and the federal government cannot get through enough procedural hoops to make a decision, that American family cannot continue to make a living. These ranch families are not the only ones under attack because of litigation over process. The industries who produce America’s energy from our natural resources are bearing the brunt of the NEPA litigation from the WEG and CBD, specifically 22 percent and 18 percent of the federal court complaints respectively oppose natural resource producing power plants, energy production and mining. Even “green energy” is now being attacked by the WWP, CBD and WEG as part of their litigation strategy. Again, the issue being litigated is not whether energy production is beneficial or detrimental to the environment, but whether the federal government properly completed the process. And just like the harm to the ranching families, the Courts can stop all movement until the NEPA process is complete and the radical groups cease their litigation wanting more and more process. Another huge litigation arena is the federal government’s compliance with the timelines in the Endangered Species Act. Over 46 percent of the cases filed by the WEG are ONLY to force the federal government to comply with these time-frames; 30 percent of the CBD cases and 25 percent of the WWP cases contain the same claims. As with NEPA, the courts cannot enforce any listing or critical habitat decision; the court can ONLY hold that the federal agencies failed to comply with the timelines and then pay attorneys fees to these radical groups because the federal government cannot meet the time-frames set by Congress. Attorney hourly fees can range from $500 per hour to $750 per hour.

Consumers have even more reason to choose this powerful protein

by CHEL TERRELL, GULF COAST CATTLEMAN s beef producers, you continually strive to spread the message to consumers that eating beef is an essential part of a healthy, nutritious diet. Now, you’ve got even more reason to proclaim the message. The American Heart Association (AHA) recently certified three additional fresh lean beef cuts as heart-healthy, making a total of six cuts of beef that have earned the AHA Heart-Check mark. This special designation is one of consumers most recognized and trusted icons on food packages in grocery stores today. Nearly 75 percent of shoppers say this mark increases the likelihood that they will purchase the product, and on top of that, the label boosts incremental sales an average of 5 percent, according to the Beef Checkoff. The addition of three new cuts to the list is an important milestone for the beef industry, as Beef Checkoff efforts over the last few years have ramped up to educate consumers on the positive benefits of beef to nutrition and health. The six extra-lean beef cuts meeting AHA’s criteria for hearthealthy foods are all USDA Select grade, with low intramuscular fat (marbling).

There are 29 cuts of beef that meet USDA guidelines for lean, including the six mentioned above. Each contains less than 10 grams of total fat, 4.5 grams or less of saturated fat, and less than 95 milligrams of cholesterol per 3.5 oz. serving. The variety of cuts makes it easy for consumers to

choose beef as part of a heart-healthy diet. Retailers can merchandise the cuts using the AHA’s Food Certification Program and obtain promotional tools such as on-pack labels, posters and recipes to market products right where consumers will notice the most – at the point of purchase. “We know that consumers are looking to retailers as a trusted source of nutrition information. Displaying the American Heart Association Heart-Check mark in the meat case makes it easier for consumers to identify heart-healthy extralean beef and as a result, grow beef sales among health-conscious shoppers,” Hendricks said. Be BOLD

Calorie-for-calorie, beef is one of the most nutrient-rich foods people can eat. Lean beef provides nutrients such as protein, iron, zinc, phosphorus, vitamin B12, niacin and riboflavin and is a great addition to a heart-healthy diet. These benefits are supported by research conducted at Pennsylvania State University, with Beef Checkoff support. The Beef in an Optimal Lean Diet (BOLD) study found that consuming lean beef daily as part of a heart-healthy diet lowered total and LDL “bad” cholesterol, which is as effective as the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet. Louisiana CattleWoman Betsy Moreland pointed out lean beef benefits in her February 2013 Gulf Coast Cattleman article. Quoting from the Beef So Simple newsletter, Moreland said, “It’s hard to go wrong with lean beef. On top of being affordable, 3 oz. of lean beef makes it easy to get 10 nutrients, including protein, zinc, vitamin B12, vitamin B6 and niacin, in a 150-calorie package, on average.” Moreland encouraged readers to visit www.choosemyplate.gov website to determine the healthy amount of calories for individuals, then find lean beef recipes, sample menus and more information on the BOLD diet website. Producers should also share the website www.beefitswhatsfordinner.com with consumers, where they can find delicious beef recipes, safety, cooking and shopping tips, more information about the BOLD program and many other helpful facts ■ about the powerful protein, beef.

Raising Children Among Wolves CRYSTAL RUNYAN DIAMOND, BEAVERHEAD RANCH n April 26, 2013 the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) rereleased two problem wolves just a short distance from our ranch at Beaverhead. These troublesome wolves had been

O

temporarily removed from the wild after numerous accounts of human encounters and livestock depredations. The male, 1133, was captured near Reserve, NM after numerous reports of loitering around neighborhood homes and other heavily populated areas. The female of the pair and I share some history together. Female 1108 is a member of the Aspen Pack, born at Taylor Creek just ¼ mile from our private property which offered the only

source of water in the area. In fact, during a routine cattle check in 2007, my husband was the first to discover and report the existence of the Aspen Pack den to USFWS. Area residents were already quite familiar with the pack. Earlier that year a terrified 8 year old stood 20 yards from an Aspen wolf as it attacked and killed her hound dog. The pack later returned to their Catron County home to kill her horse. While the Aspen female and her pups were denning near our property we suffered three confirmed cattle depredations. That summer we became well acquainted with the new pups. We kept a close eye on the wolves, an even closer eye on our cattle. In December 2011 I was reunited with an Aspen Pack pup. Female 1105 was now 4 years old. During those 4 years she had been very busy. In her first year alone, she and her pack were charged with “officially” killing 12 yearlings on our neighboring ranch, the Adobe Ranch. In 2010 she had bred with a Black Labrador. When USFWS arrived to euthanize her half-dog litter, she and one pup had disappeared from the den. Disturbing reports of encounters and the habituated behavioral patterns of 1105 were overlooked, as the priority became capturing and destroying the tainted bloodline of the AWOL dog-pup. By Christmas time 2011, the misfit 1105 had found her way onto my front porch. She stood within feet of my 2 and 3-year-old daughters, roughhousing with my border collie. She remained on my porch for the next 12 hours begging to join us, particularly the dogs, inside the house. By the next morning the authorities had arrived. Ignoring all the commotion around my house that day, 1105 was in a full trot returning to the house when she was lethally removed by U.S. Department of Agriculture Wildlife Services. She was put down 100 yards from my front door; 100 yards from my children. She was returning to a place she felt comfortable, my home. The following month, January 2012, my children and I experienced another close wolf encounter. I had parked my vehicle on the side of the road for the sake of my 3-year-old daughter who was prone to car sickness. As I assisted her on the shoulder of the road my 2 year old remained in the vehicle crying from her car seat. I returned my sick child to the car, strapping her in and then proceed to walk around the rear of my vehicle to find a large, healthy, undaunted wolf standing continued on page 27

near my open driver’s side door. This wolf circled my vehicle for over 15 minutes, allowing me to take video and photos from my cell phone. The louder my crying baby hollered from the back seat, the closer he came to the vehicle. Representatives of USFWS could not identify this wolf and offered no explanation for its habituated behavior. Megan Richardson, owner of the neighboring Slash Ranch, called in late March 2013 to inform me she had learned of a pair of problem wolves scheduled to be rereleased near our ranches. The pair is Male 1133 and Female 1108. Aspen pack female 1108 is the full sister to 1105 removed near my porch. During a pre-release meeting with USFWS hosted in our ranch lodge at Beaverhead, Megan, and many others voice their concerns. It is calving season. We’re in one of the worst droughts New Mexico has seen in years. And if things aren’t bad enough, now Gila cattle ranchers are to be reunited with two killing machines. It’s a hard pill to swallow for Los Adobes manager, Gene Whetten. Gene

looks the USFWS official in the face and reminds the room that when 1108 was captured off his ranch after her murderous rampage he was promised she would not be re-released. Megan’s concerns, like mine, are not just the threat these wolves pose to cattle because we’re not just raising cattle, we’re raising children. Discussing compensation for losses to a mother is immaterial and frankly inappropriate. As ranchers living among these wolves, we know their wild behaviors perhaps better than anyone. And the truth is there isn’t anything wild about them. They kill for sport, they are not alarmed by the presence of humans, and despite what the USFWS continue to tell us, they will not stay in their designated area. Our human safely concerns are met with a textbook response from USFWS. This particular pair will be released in McKenna Park in the Gila Wilderness based on the lack of human presence in the area. McKenna Park is less than 10 miles from Megan’s doorstep. Wolves may travel up to 50 miles or more in a day. Despite concerns from area landowners, local government officials, and outraged Ag organizations – the pair is released on April 26, 2013. On Wednesday May 8, 2013 Megan and

her family returned to their farm in Monticello Canyon, just outside Truth or Consequences and well outside of the wolf recovery zone. That afternoon, neighbor Shabrina Montoya shares with them cell phone photographs of a collared wolf she spotted right off the road while returning home from work that day. Shortly after, the wolf photographs appear on internet social media and on the front page of the next edition of the local newspaper. USFWS begin making plans to remove this unwelcome community occupant. He is finally captured 30 miles north of Monticello after killing a newborn calf. Most alarming to the Richardsons is the discovery of his identity. The wolf seen creeping around their farm home is none other than Male 1133. Released 12 days prior, 1133 had traveled over 100 miles from his wilderness release site. He was captured approximately 30 miles from Sevilleta, the breeding facility he knew as home. During the pre-release meeting at Beaverhead USFWS and U.S. Forest Service representatives were confident the pair would remain in the wilderness location of McKenna Park and were not likely to continued on page 28

Many times I have claimed the USFWS just won’t “get it” until one of their wolves kills someone. “Wait until a wolf takes a kid right out of camp” or “It’s only a matter of time before they kill a hiker or unsuspecting hunter.” These boastful predictions became deep-rooted fears when I became a mother. I can’t afford to wait around for a human tragedy to wake the USFWS to the recklessness of their program. The most likely of human victims to fall prey to these killers will be a child. The joyful laughter and distressed cries of children entice wolves. The only natural behaviors I have witnessed of these government bred wolves is their raw predator instinct to hunt. They are different from other forest predators in that they display no fear of humans. They are hunters and I fear my children are easy prey. The USFWS is unrelenting in their mission to establish a viable wolf population, but at what cost? Diminishing elk populations put outfitters and guides at risk of losing their livelihoods. Ranches that have been handed down for generations seem to be sacrificing their livestock as wolf feed rather than raising profitable cattle. Even in the state of our current economy, millions of tax dollars continue to be spent on a failing program. All the elk, all the ranch lands, and all the dollars in the world will be of little concern to a mother who loses a child as a result of this senseless program. The Gila forest hosts a large population of young visitors on weekends and summer months in addition to the countless children living in the area. The concern for too many involved in this wolf program is not for the young, fearful victims living in terror of these creatures. As mothers raising children among wolves we have the additional challenge of protecting our kids from a threat imposed by our own government and funded by our own tax dollars. Mexican Grey Wolves are tormenting our families and terrorizing our children. I beg for your help, in whatever capacity that may be, in protecting our sons and daugh■ ters.

Dumb But Useful he pastor was making a point Sunday morning. He said, “Even God’s dumbest creatures can be useful.” I tried not to take it personally. However, if he’d seen my grade transcript from vet school, I would certainly qualify for half of it! But, he was talking about sheep. Most people would agree that sheep are useful. It has always baffled me why all the “All Natural, Organic, EcoGreen” contingent turns a blind eye to the ewe. We make a hollow noise cheering on experimental energy sources; electric cars, and windmill arrays. But how can purists buy brand-name jackets that tout polyester, nylon and elastane ripstock as their ingredients? Does that sound green to you? Maybe they are persuaded by the claim of “A soft fleece backing that has natural moisture-wicking properties?” Does that mean sheep’s wool is really involved? Nope, their definition of “Fleece” is a ‘soft napped insulating synthetic wool.’ Oh . . . synthetic wool. God gave us sheep to eat and insulate us. If you were condemned to live on a deserted island like Ireland for 5 years and were allowed to have only one species of animal, which would you pick? Fish? A horse? A pack of dogs? A litter of kittens? Cows? Bears? Pigs? Alligators, Possum, Goats, Parrots? There’s a case for the horse as transportation, but it would be like being married to a high-maintenance wife. Something would always be wrong. Cows are equal to sheep in IQ and their SAT scores, but they are bulky and hard to handle. There is nothing fun about chasing cows afoot.

T

O

Pigs are smarter which gives them an advantage over sheep if you’re playing checkers but since when has intelligence been an advantage when you are going to eat them? It’s also a disadvantage if you’re trying to make them follow. Dogs can be good company and, when you get down to it, they can eat each other. I know, some cultures eat dogs but on a small island it might be hard to eat your friend. On the down side, how would you like to live in a world that smelled like a kennel? I don’t know if I could survive 5 years on nothing but chicken. There are people who have done that but they are from Arkansas and are used to guinea hens, condors and possum. But there would always be the advantage if an alligator, rattlesnake or squirrel somehow invaded your island, you would still be able to say, “Everything here tastes like chicken.” Granted, one might make a case for llama, possibly, or rabbits. But to insure your survival it’s hard to beat sheep as a source of bedding, clothing, leather, meat, disposition, ear plugs, padding, reproduction, milk, and some might say beauty and companionship. AND, to top it off they’ll eat anything! To accomplish this recognition of sheep as the world’s best all natural, edible, cuddly, wearable, rideable, milkable, recyclable species on Earth, one that is dumb but useful, we must first educate an urban community who believe that meat comes in a plastic wrapper, milk comes in bottles, fur is faux, and fleece is really a ‘soft napped insulating synthetic wool’. Like Astroturf, I guess.

3-PHASE POWER ANYWHERE!

APPLICATIONS

Phase-A-Matic, Inc. Phase Converters are used when three-phase lines are not available or are cost prohibitive. The phase converter will run virtually any 3phase machine at any single-phase location. Advances in converter technology have resulted in low price, high performance and reliability closely resembling three-phase line power. This enables us to provide the required power for CNC and other voltage-sensitive equipment.

Phase-A-Matic, Inc. Rotary Phase Converters run all common three-phase machine shop equipment, providing the power necessary to run all load types – including CNC/PLC, transmitters, lasers, welders, battery chargers, heating elements, etc. Whatever the load type – motor, resistive, induction, or transformer load – our Rotary Converter will power it. Phase-A-Matic, Inc. has been providing phase conversion for the home shop machinist, the industrial machinist, the farmer in agricultural use, for food processing equipment, the woodworking industry, the metalworking industry, medical equipment, elevators, etc. The Rotary Converter is designed to operate as modules with the ability to be connected in parallel to produce any required output, no matter how large. With fuel prices skyrocketing, diesel generators are now being replaced with Phase-A-Matic, Inc. Rotary Phase Converters. Bring your request to us and we will supply the right conversion for your application.

ROTARY CONVERTER RELIABILITY – MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) Failure rate (MTBF) is so low it’s almost impossible to determine. We find that within the first 12 months approximately 1 in 150 might have a problem, and usually within a few weeks or months. After the first 12 months, it might be one or less in 10,000 over a 35-year period. We continue to hear of our Rotary Converters that have been in service for 25 or 30 years or more, and which are still working flawlessly. It could go on to do another 25 or 30 years. The reason for the reliability is fairly obvious. Phase-A-Matic, Inc. Rotary Converters do not have start capacitors or contactors or mechanical connections of any kind as most other converters do, which contributes to and is usually the most common cause of failure. All connections are soldered, which is not feasible with other designs. Even though some other manufacturers claim to use Baldor motors, they still have start capacitors and switch gear, which we have eliminated by working with Baldor for approximately 2 years to develop the way these are engineered. It pays to buy Phase-A-Matic, Inc. for long life and high reliability. There is very little to go wrong with the Rotary Converter.

long-term dependability. It is the quietest rotary converter on the market, and the best quality available anywhere. It meets your concerns in delivering the critical uptime and reliability your operation requires.

COMPANY REPUTATION & BENEFITS Professional, available technical support for proper sizing and installation, consistent product reliability and immediate delivery from stock for most items are core components of the strength of the company and its esteemed reputation. Phase-A-Matic, Inc. phase converters range from 1/3 to 500 HP or more. We have the right converter to meet your needs in delivering economical, reliable and true 3-phase power of the highest quality, thus providing the dependability and uptime you must have.

OPEN GATE PROGRAM OVERVIEW New Mexico Department of Game and Fishâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (NMDGF) Open Gate program is a voluntary program available to landowners that leases access to private property for properly licensed sportsmen and women to hunt, fish, or trap. Landowners who work with the NMDGF through Open Gate receive an annual lease payment and are provided liability protection from the State. Leases generally run for the duration of one license year; however, longer-term agreements that cover multiple license years may be available under some conditions. Open Gate works with landowners to create a customized lease agreement tailored to meet their individual needs and protect their interests. Landowners may specify the types of activities that are permitted on their property and dictate the seasons for which the property is open. Landowners may elect to lease some or all of their property. Access is permitted only on leased acreage during open seasons. Sportsmen are expected to act responsibly and comply with the rules when using an Open Gate property. Game Wardens patrol Open Gate properties during open seasons enforcing the rules.

The NMDGF will prioritize leases that are located reasonably close to populated areas, in areas with limited access, and that have the potential to offer a wide variety of activities. All applications are evaluated by the NMDGF, prioritized and ranked depending upon benefits the proposed lease provides to the Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sportsmen and women.

Payments for a hunting lease are determined using a standard fee schedule that applies a per acre value to the lease based upon the hunting opportunities, habitat quality, and location. Payments for a fishing lease also are determined using a standard fee schedule that applies a value to the lease based upon the location, accessibility, size, type, and quality of fishing waters. Under some circumstance, Open Gate may pay for right-of-way across private property to gain access to large tracts of public land with limited accessibility. Lease rates for a right-of-way are determined by the number of acres the right-of-way opens for use.

BPI’s defamation lawsuit vs. ABC News ordered back to S.D. state court by LISA M. KEEFE, MEATINGPLACE.COM U.S. District Court judge in mid June ruled that Beef Products Inc.’s $1.2 billion defamation lawsuit against ABC News and others should be moved back to state court, where the company had initially filed last September. The ruling, by Judge Karen E. Schreier of the Southern District of South Dakota, is a victory for BPI. It was widely thought that ABC News was seeking a more sympathetic venue in its motion to move the case to federal court. However, in its request to have the case moved to federal court, filed last October, ABC had argued that only BPI — not its related companies, Freezing Machines Inc. and BPI Technology Inc. — are “parties of interest” to the case. Therefore, BPI’s argument that their co-location in Union County, S.D., gave the state court jurisdiction is invalid, ABC said. Moving the case to federal court in South Dakota was proper because the case remains in the “district and division” where it first was filed, but accounts for the fact that the parties to the case, including the defendants, encompass several different states. Judge Schreier rather harshly dismissed ABC News’s argument, however, saying that it not only went against legal precedent, “it also goes against reason.” “Defendants’ argument . . . proposes that the court first entangle itself with the facts of the case in order to make a legal determination about whether BPI Tech’s claim has merit. Put simply, defendants are suggesting that the court make a determination about the merits of BPI Tech’s claim before even deciding whether it has the authority to make such a determination. This is putting the cart before the horse. “Thus, the court finds that BPI Tech is a real party in interest. Because BPI Tech is a real party in interest, complete diversity of citizenship does not exist between plaintiffs and defendants. Accordingly, it is ordered that . . . the Clerk of Court will remand this case to the Circuit Court of Union County, South Dakota, from which it was removed.” In response to the decision, Erik Connolly, a partner with Winston & Strawn law firm in Chicago and one of BPI’s attorneys, told Meatingplace, “We originally filed the lawsuit in state court because that was the proper jurisdiction. The court’s decision confirms that we were correct. We look forward to presenting our case in state court.” An ABC spokesman told Reuters that, “This is purely a decision on what court will hear the case. The court stated that ABC and the other defendants have the right to move to dismiss the case in ■ the state court, and ABC intends to do just that.”

Lawmakers praise 6-month postponement of prairie chicken decision PHIL TAYLOR, E&E REPORTER awmakers of both parties praised the Fish and Wildlife Service’s decision to postpone by six months its decision on whether to list the lesser prairie chicken as a threatened species. FWS Director Dan Ashe informed lawmakers from Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas that the agency would not finalize its listing decision until the end of next March, as lawmakers had requested earlier this month (Greenwire, June 17). “Public comments received by the Service since publication of the proposed rule have highlighted substantial scientific disagreement regarding the sufficiency or accuracy of the available data relevant to the listing proposal,” Ashe wrote in a letter to senators and representatives of the states. The lawmakers had argued more time is needed to complete a five-state conservation plan that encourages landowners to commit to voluntary conservation steps to preserve the bird’s native grassland and prairie habitat. “This extension is the right decision for New Mexico and the West,” said Rep. Steve Pearce (R-N.M.). “In the past, we’ve seen hasty listing decisions needlessly cost thousands of jobs, destroy communities and even have a detrimental impact on the environment and the species itself.” Senators earlier this month had lauded

L

the “groundbreaking nature of the fivestate plan” and said participants should be given the maximum amount of time to enroll in the plan to demonstrate its effectiveness. The plan aims to eliminate the need for a listing. While lawmakers had asked FWS to

consider postponing its decision until next summer, Ashe said the agency does not intend to ask a federal judge for any additional time. The agency is obligated by legal settle-

ETTER DAYS ARE JUST AHEAD! The fundamentals are in place for a solid recovery for agriculture. Every day, we’re a day closer to a rain and with all the pent up demand for our products, there’s a solid market awaiting everything we produce. Let’s stay strong and stay proud as did our forefathers, with the faith that we’ll be rewarded with better days. Let’s stay prepared to take advantage of the better times we know are ahead, so that we can make the most of the good times. Our strength as an industry and as a community, depends on our strength as individuals.

We’re proud believers in the future of agriculture & the promise of better days ahead!

Deming Man 2013 NM CowBelles Man of the Year illy Armendariz, editor of the Deming Headlight, was named New Mexico CowBelles’ 2013 Man of the Year during the Mid Year Meeting held in Albuquerque in mid June. The BorderBelles CowBelles nominated Armendariz for the award in appreciation for the continued support and publicity in reaching thousands of people for are BEEF promotions. His outspoken championship of the importance of agriculture and beef in southwest New Mexico has brought statewide attention to the CowBelle mission of promoting BEEF. Armendariz graduated from Deming High School and continued his studies at the University of New Mexico. He returned to Deming, married Becky Quarrell and raised two children, Jay Jay and Dustin. In 2004 Armendariz became editor of the Deming Headlight, after having served 22 years as sports editor. He is an active member of the community and has been involved in many organizations including the Lions Club, Loyal Order of Moose, Knights of Columbus and Little League. He has earned variuous community awards including Friends of Education. “Billy has been a tremendous help to our organization,” said Gwyn Ruebush, Nominating Chairman. “So much of the time the general public does not realize the aspects of agriculture, thinking all goods are manufactured at stores. Billy has fusedthe link between rancher and farmer and the consumer in our area. “He has reached many more people than we could,” she continued, “using media and other resources. We are thankful he is behind our cause, helping in every way he can. Our local CowBelles are honored to have such a loyal supporter for ■ agriculture and BEEF.”

Angus Names Director of Activities, Events & Education Robin Ruff promoted to lead the American Angus Association’s event-planning efforts he American Angus Association® named Robin Ruff as the new director of activities, events and education for it’s nearly 25,000-member organization. Ruff’s commitment during her 6-year tenure in the junior activities department has earned her the opportunity to manage the Association’s entire event schedule and

T

further develop educational programs. “With Robin’s background and enthusiasm for the breed, the Association is confident she will lead our members in the right direction,” says Bryce Schumann, Association chief executive officer. “We are eager to see the new life and ideas she will bring to our activities and events.” In her new position, Ruff will work with members to coordinate events, such as the Beef Leader’s Institute, Cattlemen’s Boot Camps, National Western Stock Show, and more. She will also oversee the Associa-

tion’s award programs, including the Angus Heritage Foundation, Historic and Century Awards. “The American Angus Association represents more than a breed,” Ruff says. “It symbolizes a group of people who believe in something bigger than themselves, and I want them to feel that way when they walk into an Association event, large or small.” Most of all, Ruff says she is looking forward to expanding the Association’s educational outreach. One example will be the 2014 National Angus Convention and Trade Show in Kansas City. The event marks a dramatic departure from the traditional annual business meeting, which has been in Louisville, Ky., during most of the last four decades. The 2014 event will include educational workshops, a trade show featuring allied industry partners, top-flight keynote speakers and several social activities. “Planning the 2014 convention is an opportunity of a lifetime,” Ruff says. “I am excited to start brainstorming ideas and make this conference the event Angus members and cattle enthusiasts deserve.” In addition, Ruff is responsible for coordinating about 17 nationwide Roll of Victory Shows throughout the year. During her time with the Association, Ruff has served as the junior activities assistant and director of junior activities. She planned and managed the premier event of the beef industry, the National Junior Angus Show; served as advisor the NJAA Board of Directors; arranged annual Leaders Engaged in Angus Development conferences; and coordinated several other youth leadership events. A Kansas native, Ruff grew up in Hanston on a family-owned operation with around 200 head of cattle. She holds a bachelor’s degree in agribusiness from Kansas State University, and is expected to graduate with her master’s degree in youth development in 2014. Ruff is active in the community through the Saint Joseph Junior League, Trails West® Arts and Musical Festival and ■ Big Brothers, Big Sisters.

Freedom of Information Act Abuse by KAREN BUDD FALEN, ATTORNEY, CHEYENNE, WYOMING ince 2009, Western Watersheds Project (“WWP”) has issued at least 675 Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”) requests just to the BLM and Forest Service, related to livestock grazing on the public lands. Although I did not read all 675 requests, I did find some letters that demanded information for as many as 50 allotments in one single FOIA request. Most WWP FOIAs also wanted documents from multiple years and on multiple subjects. Many of the requests included instructions to the BLM or Forest Service offices stating that the response to WWP should be sent electronically or in a certain format. While the FOIA requires that the federal government make certain documents available, can a requester really dictate the format of the response? Additionally, for every request, WWP argues that they should receive all information free of charge because they are: ■ a non-profit membership organization dedicated to protecting and conserving the public lands and natural resources of watersheds in the American West. WWP has over 1200 members . . . WWP is active

S

in seeking to protect and improve the riparian areas, water quality, fisheries, wildlife, and other natural resources and ecological values of western watersheds. To do so, WWP actively participates in agency decision-making concerning BLM [Forest Service] lands throughout the West, and the BLM’s management of livestock grazing in Idaho, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming.* ■ WWP is effective at increasing public awareness of environmental matters, such as protection of the diverse and valuable sagebrush-steppe ecosystem, through public education and outreach, participation in administrative processes, litigation & other enforcement of federal environmental laws. (*WWP uses this same language to justify its fee waiver requests in Montana, California, Arizona and New Mexico as well). In contrast, if a rancher/permittee requests that very same information about his allotment requested by WWP, the BLM or the Forest Service will charge him $42.00 per hour for administrative search time and $.15 per page for each photocopy made. It seems backwards to me that a rancher is charged for “administrative search time” and photocopy costs to see what is in his own files, yet a group whose stated goal is to “get cows off the public lands ASAP” gets that exact same informa-

tion for no charge at all (not even charging out-of-pocket costs). In addition to the shear volume of FOIA requests and the mass of information requested in each of the individual requests by WWP, other issues are of note: First, in addition to requesting information about individual allotments or groups of allotments, some of WWP FOIAs request documents and information about named individuals. Of the FOIAs I reviewed where WWP wanted information about named ranchers or other individual ranchers, not one of the ranchers was contacted by the BLM or Forest Service before their information was released to WWP. Second, a great number of FOIAs requested the same information over and over. For example, in 2009, a FOIA would request all monitoring data “gathered or generated to date” for an allotment or large group of allotments. The exact same FOIA will then be filed in 2010 requesting all monitoring data “gathered or generated to date” about the same allotment or groups of allotments. The same FOIA will then be filed in 2011. There is no mention in any of these FOIAs that the BLM or Forest Service had already supplied a great continued on page 146

deal of the requested information in the past – the agency simply has to relocate and copy the same information over and over again–all at the public’s expense. Third, if these radical groups do not receive the information they want – for free – federal court litigation follows, again at the taxpayers’ expense. The vast amount of FOIA cases filed by environmental groups only included the filing of a federal district court complaint, a settlement agreement for the release of the requested information and the payment of attorneys fees. Fee payments

were anywhere from $5000 to $50,000. In May, 2013, the Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform for the U.S. House of Representatives, the Ranking Members of the Committee on Environment and Public Works and the Committee on the Judiciary for the U.S. Senate sent a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) strongly questioning EPA’s practice of “readily grant[ing] FOIA fee waivers for liberal environmental groups – effectively subsidizing them – while denying fee waivers and making the FOIA process difficult for states and conservative groups.” It

is clear from the above research that the EPA is not the only agency who engages in such practice. Ranchers who should have the information that is kept in their files are forced to pay excessive amounts for information while radical environmental groups pay no fees for using this exact same information to file substantial numbers of administrative appeals and federal court litigation against these ranchers. With these radical groups, it is not a matter of providing fair public information; it is a matter of pushing a political agenda being subsidized by the taxpayers. While there is no question that FOIA is an important statute to allow the public to get information from the federal government, this short essay points out the serious inequities in how the statute is implemented. Individuals are forced to pay search time and copy costs for the information gathered about them and located in their own files, while radical environmental groups can get the same documentation for free to use in litigation against the federal agency and rancher. Is that ■ really the purpose of FOIA?

ments with the Center for Biological Diversity and WildEarth Guardians to issue a listing decision for the prairie chicken, which has been a candidate for protection since the early 1980s. The iconic bird, known for its elaborate mating dance, is in danger of extinction in the foreseeable future due to threats including grazing, tree encroachment, conversion of rangeland to crop and nonnative forage, and energy development, FWS said in November (Greenwire, Nov. 30, 2012). “We are committed to working with the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies and the states to further lesser prairie chicken conservation,” Ashe said in his letter to the lawmakers. “We strongly support the efforts to develop a rangewide conservation plan and are working closely with states to refine that plan.” ESA allows FWS to extend its decision time frame “if there is substantial disagreement regarding the sufficiency or accuracy of the available data relevant to the determination, for the purposes of soliciting additional data.” Such a determination was made in December 2010 in the case of the dunes sagebrush lizard. Six months later, the Fish and Wildlife Service decided to withdraw its proposal to list the 3-inch lizard as endangered, angering environmental groups. ■

everal years ago we wrote about the case of Denisa Malott, an Arkansas woman who had her horses seized by HSUS for allegedly not caring for them — only to find that the horses were, after the seizure, apparently dropped off in a field and left without adequate food and water, despite HSUS’s promise that the animals would be taken to a care facility. Previously, Malott had filed a complaint with the FBI asking for an investigation under the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act. And now the other shoe has dropped: Malott has filed a lawsuit. Read it here. The suit, filed in February in the Circuit Court of Stone County, Arkansas, seeks unspecified damages for defamation, malicious prosecution, abuse of process, intentional infliction of emotional distress, trespass to real property, trespass to chattels, and conspiracy. The defendants are the Humane Society of the United States, HSUS’s state legislative director Desiree Bender, the Humane Society of Missouri, and three other individuals. The seizure occurred in November 2009, after which Malott was charged with 25 felony counts of animal cruelty. Those charges were later dropped to misdemeanors — and then those charges were completely dropped altogether, in November 2011. In short, Malott had to sit under the looming threat of criminal prosecution for two years after the seizure that was conducted by HSUS and others. Following the seizure, HSUS put out a press release in which HSUS state director Desiree Bender alleged the horses were living in “deplorable conditions” and HSUS claimed that the “horses are being taken to The Rescue Wranglers’ pasture in White Hall, Ark., where they will receive the attention they deserve.” But Malott alleges that the attention the horses got was far from what they deserved. Instead of going to The Rescue Wranglers’ pasture three hours away, the horses were found close to the seizure site. What’s more, they allegedly were found to be

without adequate food and water — essentially dropped off in a pasture, from the sound of it. Malott wasn’t allowed to feed her horses because of the pending criminal charges, but she eventually won physical custody of the animals and was able to feed them. The June/July 2010 edition of MareConnection has more details about the seizure and subsequent events. In short, Malott’s lawsuit asserts that the allegations of HSUS and others were false, which damaged her reputation and business. She’s essentially saying: “Prove it.” So we’ll see what HSUS has got to back

up its actions. But if her horses were seized under false pretenses or HSUS made defamatory statements, then the organization could be pretty deep in manure. Two other HSUS “raids” have spurred lawsuits: One in South Dakota and one in Hawaii. The South Dakota case is still active and is slowly progressing. HSUS is also facing a federal lawsuit filed under anti-racketeering statutes. As always, we’ll keep an eye on this case and keep you ■ posted as to any developments.

My Cowboy Heroes by JIM OLSON

Bobbi Mulhall Jeen – “Lucille OLSON First Cowgirl” o see a petite young lady roping and tying a steer or performing stunts ahorseback is special. To do it in the early 1900s, an era of rough and tough, “real” cowboys, and do it as well as, or better than the men is incredible. Lucille Mulhall was born October 21, 1885, in St. Louis, Missouri, to Colonel Zack and Agnes Mulhall. The family relocated to Oklahoma during the great land rush of 1889 and homesteaded one-hundred-sixty acres. The Mulhalls eventually laid claim to about eighty-thousand acres of rangeland located north of Guthrie — some of which was leased land. However, much of it was open range they simply controlled and claimed by virtue of use and being on it (a common practice of the day). By age seven, Lucille was riding the range, being taught cowboy ways by the men who rode the plains, in what was then “Indian Territory.” Zack Mulhall once claimed that when his daughter was only thirteen, he told her she could keep as many of his steers as she could rope in one day. He bragged, “She didn’t quit until catching more than three-hundred head!” Col. Zach Mulhall (a title bestowed

upon him despite never serving in the military) started a “Wild West show” in the early 1900s. Many early movie cowboys, including Tom Mix, and Will Rogers got their start in Mulhall’s Congress of Rough Riders and Ropers. Lucille also starred in the show. She was among the first women to compete in roping and riding events with men and earned many championship titles. Today she is celebrated as the first cowgirl. Will Rogers wrote, “Lucille's achievement in competition with cowboys was the direct start of what has since come to be known as the Cowgirl. There was no such a word up to then as Cowgirl.” The term was coined to describe Lucille when she dazzled Easterners in her first appearance at Madison Square Garden in 1905. “Against these bronzed and warscarred veterans of the plains, a delicately featured blonde girl appeared,” a New York reporter wrote. “Slight of figure, refined and neat in appearance, attired in a becoming riding habit for hard riding, wearing a picturesque Mexican sombrero and holding in one hand a lariat of the finest cowhide, Lucille Mulhall comes for-

ward to show what an eighteen-year-old girl can do in roping steers. In three minutes and thirty-six seconds, she lassoed and tied three steers. The veteran cowboys did their best to beat it, but their best was several seconds slower than the girl’s record-breaking time . . . The cowboys and plainsmen who were gathered in large numbers to witness the contest broke into tremendous applause when the championship gold medal was awarded to the slight, pale-faced girl.” However, Lucille was a cowgirl long before becoming an entertainer. “By the age of fourteen,” the New York Times reported, “She could break a bronco and shoot a coyote at five-hundred yards.” Newspapers tagged her with titles like “Daring Beauty of the Plains,” Queen of the Range” and “Deadshot Girl,” but the one that stuck was “Cowgirl.” It has been argued that the term “cowgirl” had been in use since before she was even born, but few would argue that Lucille was the first to give it national meaning. Even the great Geronimo was an admirer of Lucille’s talent and once gave her a beaded vest and decorated Indian bow — items she reportedly treasured her entire life. Teddy Roosevelt was also among Lucille’s fans. While campaigning in Oklahoma as a vice presidential candidate in 1900, he saw her perform. It was the Fourth of July, and she roped in front of a large crowd at a “Cowboy Tournament” in Oklahoma City. The Daily Oklahoman reported, “Roosevelt was most enchanted with the daring feats of Lucille Mulhall. She rode beautifully throughout the contest and lassoed the wildest steer in the field.” Teddy Roosevelt was so impressed by Lucille’s skills that he invited the Mulhalls to join him and a select group of the Rough Riders for a private dinner. That night Lucille gave the hero of San Juan Hill a silk scarf she had worn during the contest. Zack Mulhall then invited Roosevelt to continued on page 149

stay at his ranch — Teddy accepted. After watching Lucille’s skills with a horse, rope and gun on the ranch, Roosevelt encouraged her father to get her more exposure. “Zack, before that girl dies or gets married or cuts up some other caper,” Roosevelt reportedly said, “you ought to put her on stage and let the world see what she can do.” The rest, as they say, is history. Legend has it that during the visit, Roosevelt went riding with Lucille and they spotted a grey wolf. This whetted Roosevelt’s appetite for a hunt. The wolf eluded them that day but Roosevelt told Lucille if she could catch the wolf, he would invite her to his inaugural parade. Some claim she later roped the wolf, then killed it, others say she shot it at fivehundred yards. But by all accounts, she sent the pelt Roosevelt who displayed it in the White House after he and McKinley won the election. Lucille and family attended the inauguration and Roosevelt reportedly gave her a saddle and an 1873 Winchester. Besides starring in Mulhall’s Wild West show, Lucille also performed in the Miller Brothers 101 Ranch Wild West show (another well-known wild west show from the day), in Vaudeville, and Lucille’s career even took her to Europe, where she performed for heads of state and royalty. In 1913 she and her brother, Charley, formed a company and produced “The Lucille Mulhall Roundup.” Lucille became known world-wide as the greatest (and first) cowgirl — the result of her fine roping skills and an uncanny knack with horses. Her talents were, in part, fine-tuned by another natural cowboy — Will Rogers, who was a lifelong friend of Lucille’s (both came from Oklahoma ranching backgrounds). Couple that with her slight figure and ladylike demeanor and you had a cowgirl anomaly. More important however, she was authentic, genuine and generous — crowds loved her. It has been said that she had a natural connection with horses. She claimed her horse, Governor, knew many tricks. In an interview Lucille said, “My system of training consists of three things: patience, perseverance, and gentleness. Gentleness I consider one of the greatest factors in successful training. Governor, the horse I ride in our exhibitions has nearly forty tricks. He can shoot a gun; pull off a man’s coat and put it on again; can roll a barrel; can walk up stairs and down again — a difficult feat; is perfect in the march and the Span-

ish trot; extends the forelegs so that an easy mount may be made; kneels, lies down and sits up; indeed, he does nearly everything but talk.” She was briefly married in 1907 to Martin Van Bergen, a cowboy singer who was an opening act in the show. Together they had a son. She was also married in 1919 to Tom Burnett, whose father had established the Four Sixes Ranch in Texas. Each marriage lasted only a few years and it was reported that Zach Mulhall remained the most important man in her life. Lucille basically retired from world-

wide travel in 1917 as live Wild West performances were being overshadowed by the up and coming Hollywood westerns. However, she continued to perform throughout the 1920s and ‘30s, mostly in Oklahoma and Texas. She made her last known public appearance in September of 1940. Lucille Mulhall died near the home ranch in an automobile accident on December 21, 1940. She was only fifty-five years old. She was posthumously inducted into the Rodeo Hall of Fame in 1975 and National Cowgirl Hall of Fame in 1977. ■ Long live Cowgirls!

Dear CowBelles, e are now seeing a few clouds in the sky, and some may have seen a little moisture, please keep praying and it will come sometime. Remember that our ancestors have gone through this, we just didn’t think we would have to, be strong and believe as they did, don’t forget how we got here and the great people that gave us the opportunity to live on this great land. They gave us our independence, and left us with lots of knowledge and strength. Memorial Day and the Fourth of July are tribute to our veterans and that is why we live in a free country. We have many veterans in our own industry; we need to tell them thank you and how much we

appreciate them, and that without them we could not be in the business we are in today. Thank you for giving us the privilege to live in America and do what we love most – that is ranching and raising BEEF. Some were unable to serve in the armed forces but still served our country by raising Beef to feed those who were serving in our military. It may be dry and times are tough but be like a veteran, hold your head up and keep pushing forward. The summer meeting was very informative. We are thankful for those attending and mading it a success. Thank you Shelly for doing such a great job with the

Respectfully submitted, Tamara Hurt Reporter The June meeting of the Chamiza CowBelles was called to order by President

Gloria Petersen with eight members present. There was discussion regarding allowing the winner of the beef raffle to opt for money rather than the beef, and the specifics of how much money would be won. It was the consensus of the group to declare the amount was approximately $500 in previous years, but given cattle prices, no set amount would be promised. If the winner this year opted for the money, then the group would sell both halves of the beef. Dolores and Nancy will purchase the beef if needed. It was decided to donate four coffee mugs, a package of small napkins, and a license plate to the theme raffle for the Winston Fiesta to give exposure to the CowBelles and sell beef raffle tickets as well. Cathy relayed to the group how much Matt Welty appreciated receiving the groups scholarship this year. He has been thanking every CowBelle he meets and has already given Gloria a copy of his college schedule. Jodell, again, relayed her thanks for the donations to the food pantry. Last month $40 was collected. She also mentioned the Cancer group will be holding a fundraiser on June 15 at Elephant Butte Lake.

She said she came up with a salsa recipe to market. The name of her company is “Salsa Y Salsa” and she is currently selling in many stores around Albuquerque. During the process of establishing her business, she had to locate a commercial kitchen but she couldn’t find one to suit her. After much hard work and red tape, she now is nearly ready to open her own. Diane has made her kitchen available to all in the community who want to produce food products for resale. Her pricing is from $8 to $12 per hour depending upon what cooking functions are utilized. There was discussion about the food safety regulations concerning home made goods. Diane also plans to open a retail shop for marketing the food that is produced in the kitchen. She said she hopes to be open by July 1.

Federal

Lands News My column this month includes a government conspiracy against a ranch family, grazing in monuments and a federal virus.

The Other Hage Case ost are familiar with the Hage case before the Court of Federal Claims. However, this case is about the antics of the federal land management agencies while Hage was winning in the claims court. In 2007 the feds filed suit against Hage, citing 44 instances of livestock trespass on BLM and Forest Service land and requesting both damages and an injunction. The judge found Hage liable for trespass in two instances, and set total damages at $165.88. The judge found Hage innocent on the other trespass charges. The judge also ruled the denial of Hage’s grazing renewal application was “an abuse of discretion” and a “violation of due process”. The court also said the feds were enjoined from “unreasonably interfering with the ability of Defendants Wayne N. Hage and the Estate of E. Wayne Hage to bring cattle to those water sources and attendant ditches in which these Defendants have vested rights to water their cattle” and that the cattle drinking that water “need not be supervised during ingress onto federal land, while watering, or during egress from federal land” based on Nevada law concerning unfenced land. It’s an amazing opinion, but there’s more. The court found that during the trial the feds engaged in the following behaviors: 1. Invited others to apply for grazing permits on allotments where the Hages had previously owned permits 2. Applied to the state engineer for their own stock watering rights with the “purpose of obtaining rights for third parties other than Hage in order to interfere with Hage’s rights” 3.

where the Hages did have preference 5. The feds sent trespass notices to people who leased or sold cattle to the Hages “in order to pressure other parties not to do business with the Hages, and even to discourage or punish testimony in the present case.” The court said government officials “entered into a literal, intentional conspiracy to deprive the Hages not only of their permits but also of their vested water rights”, that these actions had “shocked the conscience” of the court, that officials had been found in contempt of court and the matter had been referred to the U.S. Attorney. Monument grazing

With the recent creation of a National Monument in New Mexico, and the enviros pushing for at least three others in our state, the issue of livestock grazing in National Monuments has come to the forefront. A recent court case caught our attention. On January 17, 2001 President Clinton issued Proclamation No. 7398, which designated 495,502 acres as the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument in Montana. Almost 120,000 acres of that was private land, or land owned by the state or counties. The proclamation says this about grazing: “Laws, regulations, and policies followed by the Bureau of Land Management in issuing and administering grazing permits or leases on all lands under its jurisdiction shall continue to apply with regard to the lands in the monument.” The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) then began its planning process, eventually issuing a programmatic EIS for the monument, and a site specific EA for a large grazing allotment. The Western Watersheds Project (WWP) then sued, challenging both the EIS and the EA The WWP claimed the BLM had misinterpreted the language in the proclamation in preparing the EIS and had violated the National Environmental Policy Act

BY FRANK DUBOIS

(NEPA) in the EA because a no grazing alternative had not been considered. The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued an opinion about this on June 7 of this year. In summary, the opinion stated the BLM had reasonably interpreted the proclamation in that it required no programmatic changes in grazing and therefore the EIS was in compliance with NEPA. However, the court also ruled the EA did not comply with NEPA because it did not contain a no- or reduced-grazing option. Ranchers in the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument can probably expect to see such an option in any EA on their allotment. We had hoped this decision would give us some clarity on interpreting the grazing language in these proclamations. Unfortunately that was not to be. A footnote to the opinion said WWP had provided a draft Resource Management Plan with a different interpretation of the grazing language. The court rejected the document because the proclamation had been issued prior to the BLM providing agency guidance on this issue. Its concerning to us the BLM would rule one way on the grazing language, and then after issuing guidance to the field they are now interpreting it differently. To further complicate the issue, when comparing the Proclamation grazing language in the Upper Missouri River Breaks with the grazing language in the Proclamation for the Rio Grande del Norte, I found a clause in the latter that does not appear in the former. That additional language is not in our favor and I’ll have a more complete discussion of that in next month’s column. Regional Mitigation

If that monument stuff is not enough to tax your brain, then please grab a hold of Regional Mitigation. Earlier this month the BLM issued an Instruction Memorandum on Regional Mitigation Strategies, Regional Mitigation continued on page 157

because the strategy includes “opportunities on both BLM-managed public lands and non-BLM-managed lands (other Federal, Tribal, State, and private lands).”

continued from page 156

Planning and Mitigation Implementation, accompanied by a 21-page Draft Manual. Traditionally the BLM has looked at energy and other issues on a project by project basis. Starting under Secretary Salazar and looking at solar industry projects, the BLM prepared what one author called “a super zoning plan”, with the idea of determining in advance which areas were best for development and which areas had the most potential conflict with other uses. This involved millions of acres. Now this “look-before-you-leap, landscape-scale approach” is being adopted nationwide by the BLM. All land owners should take note

The press reports there have been over 150 Park Service workers and several groups of visitors who have become ill at Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks. The Center for Disease Control confirms they were suffering from a “highly contagious” norovirus in the stomach. That means you will face two long lines at Yellowstone this summer.

every year they are probably dying faster. But there are so many other issues with this “news” report. Hasn’t anyone told them that it is politically incorrect to refer to “global warming?” The current correctspeech is “climate change.” But even that term is apparently on its way out. The Rio Grande Chapter of the Sierra Club recently referred to something called “climate disruption.” I don’t spend a lot of time pondering things I just don’t believe in – those global/climate/disruption folks call me a “denier.” I prefer to think of myself as a realist who is constantly in awe of Mother Nature and the power of our maker. Of course the climate changes. It is changing constantly and will continue to do so no matter what mere man does. Who is to say that the extreme overgrowth of trees in the forest isn’t changing the climate within the forest? We know that fires create their own weather. The more trees the hotter the fire and the more damage to everything in the air, on the ground – including water and wildlife. Fire in and of itself isn’t a bad thing for the land. The fact that man has created an overload of fuels that allow for the carbonizing fires the West is suffering is a bad thing. So I guess from that perspective man has had an impact on climate – but it isn’t because man did something. It is because he didn’t. Nearly 20 years ago I first learned that we were on a collision course to the catastrophe that we are witnessing today. We were told that unless there was a change in forest management practices, we could expect exactly what we have seen over the past two decades. Fire went from a few thousand acres to tens of thousands of acres and now to hundreds of thousands of acres. With those acres are going precious wildlife, homes, water quality and human life. The loss of 19 elite fire fighters last month underscores the need for the public to stand up and say NO MORE. How much

longer are we going to let our families and our land be devastated by agenda driven zealots who are succeeding in destroying everything in their path? And, don’t overlook the fact the federal government is paying them to do it. Meanwhile back at the ranch…

We are losing own freedom fighters. It is amazing how fast a person can become ingrained in your life. When I interviewed for the job with the New Mexico Cattle Growers’ Association in early 1997, I didn’t even know who Jimmy Bason was. Oh, how that was to change. During the interview gauntlet I soon learned that for whatever reason, Jimmy was a champion for me. He was on the search committee so that was huge. Rumor has it that he even turned down an invitation to the “other” room to discuss his vote. During his years as president-elect Jimmy’s “privacy issues” began to surface. I soon learned that there were a lot of things he just didn’t think were any of my business. I often disagreed. His love of the practical joke also became apparent. One of his favorite tricks during the two Legislatures we worked together was to leave my cell phone or pager number on the back of his card during his nighttime excursions. I learned not to return a page unless I was pretty sure who I was calling. Jimmy also had a slightly different approach to travel and outreach. My first full two years was with Bob Frost. Bob and Jane and I covered lots of miles, but the routine was fairly standard. You got up early in the morning, worked at a fair clip all day, and by about 9:00 p.m. the day came to a close. Not so with Jimmy. When traveling with Bason, there was no need to rise early and there was usually time for an afternoon nap. But you better be ready to dance until the band quit playing. Jimmy never let the social issues of the day curb his tongue. At one point during his presidency Jimmy was concerned that I was working too much. I didn’t disagree, but when there are so many needs, how do you determine who you are not going to help? One night at dinner the topic of conversation came up. He looked at me awhile and finally said, “It’s a wonder you don’t have a house full of kids.” That went right over my head. He

finally said, “You have never learned the word NO.” I think he got a lecture from a past president over the meaning of sexual harassment. I almost got even once. Randy, Callie and I were out to dinner in Albuquerque. Lo and behold, in walks Jimmy with a date. This was pre-Pattilu. He didn’t see us and was seated in another part of the restaurant. I begged Callie to run to his table and say, “Daddy, Daddy, Momma and the kids really need you. Won’t you please come home?” She, probably wisely, refused, but we did stop by his table before leaving. He was

none too pleased to see us. It was about that time that he began to accuse me of having a tracking chip on him. Fun was a definite part of Bason’s persona. But it wasn’t that that made him larger than life. It was his firm grasp of right and wrong along with his willingness to go to the mat every time for anyone who needed it. He was smarter than most people and definitely more cunning than just about anybody. Jimmy was a strong believer in alliances. During his tenure as NMCGA continued on page 160

president he traveled to all of our neighboring states including Chihuahua. He couldn’t have been prouder when the presidents of those state organizations came to the Joint Stockmen’s Convention. But he often did his best work alone. One of his stealth missions was the passage of the “Get Ted & Jane” bill. That wasn’t his title, but the measure was aptly named by a member of the Governor’s staff. The bill allows the state of New Mexico to tax the value of severed development rights for conservation easements. The measure could be a valuable revenue generator for local governments if they ever choose to enforce it. Despite the liberal bend of the New Mexico Legislature, the bill sailed through. That fact that he had Senator John Arthur Smith carry it didn’t hurt anything. Governor Gary Johnson signed the bill. Jimmy had a love of history and the need to preserve it. Those piles of paper throughout the ranch house were deeply significant. Pattilu was able to contain them to a room or two, but they were there nonetheless.

Many of his stories have been memorialized forever by his great friend and prolific author Max Evans. There is a new book coming out that we all need a copy of in Jimmy’s honor. I could go on, but if you knew Jimmy, you know the stories. If you didn’t, you missed a great man. Jimmy has left a tremendous legacy . . . and a big hole in mine and many other lives. Special Thanks . . .

Among those piles Jimmy was so fond of, someplace there is his DD214 (honorable discharge paper) from the U.S. Air Force. As plans were being made for the celebration of his life, there was a need for that single piece of paper. It was not to be found. After hours and hours of searching Pattilu and Brent went through the channels necessary to obtain an emergency copy. That involves the government, so you can imagine how well that worked out. Congressman Steve Pearce and his staff were put on the problem. In much less than 24 hours, the necessary paper appeared. Jimmy had lots of friends in high places.

Congressman and his state and Washington, D.C. staff. It means the world in honoring every facet of Jimmy R. Bason. Tied Hard & Fast

One of Jimmy’s tests of how good a cowboy and friend you might be was based on how you roped. If you tied hard and fast, you were a keeper. It was Jimmy’s theory that if you were a dally roper, you might not be there when times get tough. It appears that the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) is made of up those who dally rope . . . or maybe bull riders who have only hang tough for eight seconds. It was extremely disappointing to learn last month that the NCBA Executive Committee voted to eliminate the growing junior programs that were initiated in 2008. Despite the fact that the programs were fully funded by Farm Credit, NCBA determined that they had to prioritize – involving the youth that one would hope will be soon taking the reins of our industry isn’t a major priority today. The plot got thicker when we learned that NCBA has initiated the first round of another rifting of employees. The need for this is blamed on the decrease in the nation’s cowherd and the reduction of checkoff dollars. Before you start screaming “I knew it. They are spending checkoff dollars!” read the rest of the story. NCBA is the major contractor to create and execute checkoff programs in research, education and marketing. Many investigations support the fact that checkoff dollars are not used in policy matters. That all makes sense, but it hasn’t been all that long since NCBA eliminated a chunk of employees. Perhaps if the organization was able to interest even a fraction of the nation’s ranchers and farmers in membership the story would be different. And other ugly stories

New Mexico and the nation were shocked in late May when the New Mexico Livestock Board was forced to seize around 1,000 starving cows from an eastern New Mexico ranch. New Mexico’s livestock industry has come together to support the Livestock Board for their actions. There are lots of theories out there about what happened, but the fact is that the Livestock Board worked with the ranch owner for some time before the search warrant and seizure occurred to no avail. He simply refused to feed the anicontinued on page 161

mals. It doesn’t appear that financial resources were the issue. The Livestock Board does not have the power to issue a search warrant or a seizure warrant. These warrants are issued by the local district attorney. The DA involved in this case served the search warrant requesting that the Livestock Board accompany him. As the law enforcement charged with the protection of livestock and livestock production in New Mexico, the Livestock Board had the duty to execute both warrants as directed by the DA. There is no doubt that they entire situation was distasteful and hard on everyone involved. There are many who are still deeply concerned with the entire action. On that, there are two points I would like to make. First, if you do things right, you needn’t be in fear of the law. That was a lesson I was taught from an early age. I grant that in today’s “big brother” environment, that premise may not hold as true as

it did when my father was teaching me morals and ethics. Second, does anyone remember all those animal cruelty bills we fought off during the 2013 Legislature? How do you suppose this case might have been handled if the Livestock Board wasn’t in place? We have long been a proud and inde-

New Mexico’s Old Times and Old Timers

Nicholas Trist & the Mexican War hen President James K. Polk was elected in 1844, it was understood that he supported the annexation of Texas by the United States. He was, after all, a protégé of former President Andrew Jackson and thus a strong supporter of the policy of Manifest Destiny which held that

W

the United States should extend from the Atlantic to the Pacific. That policy did not sit well with Mexico. Specifically, the dispute began over the eastern boundary of Mexico: The United States, siding with Texas, held that it was the Rio Grande; Mexico held that it was at the Rio Nueces.

By DON BULLIS . . . Don Bullis is the author of ten books on New Mexico. Go to www.DonBullis.biz for more info.

President Polk ordered U. S. troops to a point on the Rio Grande opposite the Mexican town of Matamoros, well within the disputed territory. General Zachery Taylor then proceeded to blockade the Rio Grande which isolated the 3,000 man Mexican Army at Matamoros. Shots were exchanged and lives were lost, most of them American at that point. On April 23, 1846, Mexican President Mariano Parendes y Arrillaga declared a “defensive war” with the United States. President Polk, in a message on May 11, did not ask the congress for a declaration of war against Mexico, but he did ask for acknowledgement that a state of war already existed. While there was considerable northern Whig opposition to the conflict (Polk was a southern Democrat), congress approved 50,000 troops and $10 million to prosecute the war. Things moved so quickly that Brigadier General Stephen Watts Kearny and the U. S. Army of the West captured New Mexico and occupied Santa Fe by August of the same year. Only a year later, by May 1847, General Winfield Scott had established his headquarters at Puebla, 70 miles southeast of Mexico City. Nicholas Trist, President Polk’s negotiator, arrived at Vera Cruz about then. General Scott didn’t trust Trist, and for that matter he did not trust President Polk. Early on, Trist and Scott would not even speak to each other, and each spent considerable time in criticizing the other by mail to Washington. Things reached such a nadir by early June that Scott asked to be recalled. The president simply ordered the two men to quit bickering. They did. General Scott, at one point, sent Trist a jar of guava marmalade as a peace offering. Both then sent letters to Washington begging that their earlier missives be deleted from the official record. Initial talks between Trist and Mexican emissaries began in August 1847. Trist’s instructions from Washington were to set the border between Texas and Mexico at the Rio Grande, and to establish Mexico’s northern border at the 32nd parallel from the Rio Grande west to the Pacific Ocean. Trist’s early negotiations were not successcontinued on page 163

ful, and in November he was ordered back to Washington. Some historians are less than charitable about this event. Columbia University historian Henry Steele Commager said, “Trist’s blundering . . . led to his recall.” No matter what led up to it, Trist simply ignored the order and continued to negotiate. Meanwhile, back home, there was great debate about what Trist was doing in Mexico regarding new borders. Some people were opposed to the acquisition of any Mexican land. Senator Daniel Webster of Massachusetts orated that New Mexico (which then included what is now Arizona) and California were “not worth a dollar.” On the other extreme, President Polk himself said at one point that the United States “might have to take the full measure of indemnity into its hands.” This was interpreted to mean than the United States might annex all of Mexico. Northern Whigs believed that Polk’s expansionist activities were intended to extend slavery into new territory and thereby increase the influence of southern states in congress. Polk was, after all, a slave owner. Not only did Nicholas Trist continue to negotiate with the Mexican government— without authority but with General Scott’s blessing—he wrote a 65-page letter to his boss, Secretary of State James Buchanan, in which he denounced President Polk’s attempt to recall him as a “deadly blow to the cause of peace.” In early January 1848, Trist got down to basics. He knew that his days as a negotiator were numbered but by the end of the month the two sides were still quibbling. Trist issued a “now or never” ultimatum: Mexico would surrender 500,000 square miles (essentially what was then New Mexico and California) in return for payment of $15 million, plus more than $3 million in Mexican debt to Americans would be forgiven. That was the offer, and the Mexicans accepted it. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed in a village of the same name on February 2, 1848, and sent off to Washington. President Polk was outraged. He called Trist “an impudent and unqualified scoundrel.” The president could not deny, however, that he had a peace treaty in hand, and it would be difficult to ignore that fact. Besides, he acknowledged that the treaty delivered just about what he had hoped for at war’s start. He sent it on to the U.S. Senate where, after considerable

debate, it was ratified on May 30, 1848. For better or worse, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was a fact. Historian Rubén Sálaz Márquez believes that Polk recalled Trist because the president had decided to annex all of Mexico and Trist stood in the way. He cites Richard Griswold de Castillo who wrote, “Had it not been for Trist, all of Mexico might have been made part of the United States.” Whatever the case, Nicholas Trist engineered the cessation of hostilities and saved countless lives, both Mexican and American. Some provisions of the treaty he negotiated, however, have been debated from that day until this. Selected Sources: George Baker.

JULY 2013

he World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) and Compassion in World Farming last week released a report titled “Zoonotic diseases, human health and animal welfare,” implicating intensive animal agriculture for outbreaks of human illness. In 2012, the groups commissioned researchers to compile a series of reports examining the public health threat posed by some of the major zoonotic diseases and the effects of farming systems on this threat. The report summarizes their findings and provides policy recommendations from the two groups. A news release from the WSPA leads with a statement that “The intensification of modern farming is an increasing hazard for human health.” The report cites incidents of foodborne illnesses from campylobacter, salmonella and E. coli, and zoonotic diseases such as bird flu and swine flu, concluding that concentrated production, animal transport and associated stress and disease exposure are to blame for outbreaks. The authors offer the following recommendations: Ensure health – by developing farming policies for humane sustainable food supplies that ensure the health of animals and people. This includes using animal breeds, diets and management conditions that minimize stress and optimize animal welfare and immunity. Surveillance and vaccination – helping minimize the spread of disease. Limit transport – ensuring animals are slaughtered humanely on or near to the farm where they were raised. Invest in research and knowledge transfer – helping support farmers to develop and implement higher welfare livestock systems. Reduce non–therapeutic antibiotic use – limiting the risk of antibiotic resistance. Encourage consumers to eat less and higher welfare meat – reducing the risk of exposure to food infected with Salmonella, Campylobacter or E. Coli. Read the full report from the WSPA and ■ Compassion in World Farming.
