ESSAGE

NMCGA PRESIDENT

Hot Summer Greetings to All:

J

une has been a busy month for us in Cattle Growers’. We finished the regional meetings with “Bucky’s Birthday Bash and Dance” — well actually, we met before the bash began — but had a great time at the dinner and dance. This was a fund raising effort for the Gila Wolf Litigation Fund. We have attended the Livestock Board meeting, interim committee meetings, met with various agency officials, and last but not least, had a great mid-year meeting. Whew! One of the meetings in June was the NAIS mini-listening session held at Route 66 Casino west of Albuquerque. The reason for holding the meeting there was so that USDA could get testimony from socially disadvantaged ranchers. Now in all these years, socially disadvantaged is not a term I have heard used much to describe anyone in agriculture. In college, many cowboys were referred to as “rude, crude and socially unacceptable,” but not disadvantaged. We are made fun of because we generally say “yes/no ma’am/sir” when replying to anyone of any age. This is only because we know that our mothers will still get on to us for not doing so, even at the age of 53. Perhaps some of the other ways we might be considered socially disadvantaged is that most of us only use one knife, fork and spoon at a meal and can get confused if there are more than that at our place setting. The men rise, remove their hats and usually remain standing when talking to a woman, even when they know her. Men also open doors for women, when the women allow them to do so. Most men do not use foul language in the presence of women or their elders. Too bad more people aren’t as socially disadvantaged. Our kids could be called socially disadvantaged because most of them have to work all summer instead of going to camp or the movies or swimming. Of course, most ranch kids live on what others consider a camp or the wilderness, and where some other folks pay good money for the experience. In addition, our kids have seen animals being conceived, born and die, which could affect their fragile minds. I remember the first time we finally pulled a live calf from a heifer and Cody was so excited that we had saved one (our live calf percentage is really very high, but not to a then 6-year old). Our kids usually have more animal friends than people friends until they finally start school. Interestingly enough, when it comes to hiring kids, most employers want kids with agriculture backgrounds because they DO know how to work. I hope our socially disadvantaged ranchers in New Mexico were not a disappointment to those from USDA. Last, but not least, wasn’t the article in the June Stockman about Mary Skeen, Sheepman of the Year, absolutely wonderful? The picture on the cover captured her so well. I have very fond memories of both Mary and Joe Skeen. New Mexico is a better place for the contributions of both of them to our state. Congratulations Mary for the most deserving honor. Best to all,

Western States Working Towards USDA Recognition of Brand States’ Status ith the USDA’s recent New Mexico National Animal Identification System (NAIS) listening session, and continuing concern nationwide about the development of that program, animal identification is a hot topic for New Mexico’s livestock producers. The same is true for the New Mexico Livestock Board, charged with protecting livestock owners’ property and the health of their herds. To help ensure implementation of a successful national program, and that New Mexico’s current brand inspection and livestock identification system is recognized by the USDA, the agency is actively participating in the USDA’s Brand States Working Group. Made up of 15 western states with brand systems in place, the group was established to help the USDA progress toward their 48hour traceback objective in an animal health emergency, and to improve the agency’s ability to track animal movements. Over half of the cattle in the nation are raised in states represented by the working group — Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. The brand agencies in member states are set up differently — some are industry-run, some have no connection to their state veterinarian, and in some states, like New Mexico, both the brand and animal health agencies are housed together. However, all have close working relationships with their state veterinarian, and all utilize brand inspectors and collect and maintain the information the USDA wants. “We want to be sure that USDA takes into consideration the tools and equipment we have in place,” said Sam Wilson, who represents the NMLB and serves as working group co-chair. The ability to trace an animal to its place of origin, and identify all animals it has come in contact with in an animal health emergency, is one of the main goals of NAIS. Because of the brand and inspection system currently in place in New Mexico, the NMLB can currently provide that traceback information, and has done so in the past when USDA has made a request. “In New Mexico, we have been identifying cattle with brands since the Spaniards came into this country, and through inspections since the Livestock Board was founded in 1887. The USDA was not taking that into account as they developed NAIS, which was the main reason we got involved in the working group.” Wilson said. The working group has met several times, and recently submitted a report to USDA with several recommendations that would improve the NAIS and make it workable for western states. “We are trying to show the USDA that we already have, and can

provide, what they are looking for,” Wilson said. “All of our systems already have the infrastructure and personnel in place.” One recommendation made to USDA is to allow group identification for cattle that are shipped together and stay together, similar to what has been established in the pork industry. In New Mexico and other western states, a rancher will sell the majority of his calves in a group that goes directly to be fed, then slaughtered, as a group. Currently, the NAIS proposal would require individual identification for that group of calves, resulting in repetitive and unnecessary labor and paperwork for the producer. Another recommendation is to allow state livestock agencies to access the national database. The current plan would privatize the database, only allowing access in an animal health emergency. Part of a livestock inspector’s job is to return lost livestock to their rightful owners, but the new policy would severely limit that ability. “We definitely recognize the desire to keep that information private, but not to the point that it keeps our guys

from being able to do their jobs,” Wilson said. The group will meet again in mid-July during the International Livestock Identification Association meeting. “We have tried to stress to USDA the differences between eastern and western cattle operations,” Wilson said. “We’re not arguing that NAIS won’t work in the East. We’re saying that as it’s currently proposed, it won’t work in the West because of cattle numbers and the sheer size of cattle operations. We don’t want USDA to do away with the infrastructure and knowledge that we already have in place.” As proposed, NAIS places a huge burden on one segment of the beef industry — the cow/calf producer — the one segment that really has no way to pass those costs on. If each animal has to be individually identified, that burden falls directly on the cow/calf producer, who will not get any premium for that extra work. “It seems like this program has not been developed with the best interests of the cow/calf producer in mind,” Wilson said. “As it’s currently written, it seems to be driven by economics as opposed to actually trying to ■ make things better. “

New Mexico ranchers say No to NAIS ew Mexico’s livestock industry delivered a strong “No” to the USDA regarding the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) at the state’s recent listening session. Between 120 and 150 producers attended the meeting, held by USDA to get input on the proposed federal program on June 16 at Laguna Pueblo, said Alisa Ogden, New Mexico Cattle Growers’ Association (NMCGA) President, Loving. New Mexico and other western states have, and have had for at least 100 years, a brand system that permanently identifies cattle and can provide the traceback USDA is looking for, she said. “Will tags in their ears guarantee healthier cattle? Will tags guarantee that every rancher will do things the right way? Of course not. NAIS is not written to improve animal health, it’s a crisis reaction to BSE.”

N

“Almost everyone who testified was against the program, and none of our questions were answered. As it turned out, very few of the USDA representatives who were at the New Mexico listening session are even involved in the program.” Comments were transcribed by a court reporter, and attendees received no information or feedback from USDA staff in attendance, Ogden said. “Almost everyone who testified was against the program, and none of our questions were answered. As it turned out, very few of the USDA representatives who were at the New Mexico listening session are even involved in the program.” The concerns expressed by producers at the listening session are long-standing, and have yet to be addressed by USDA. Producers are concerned about the security of their private information — location, cattle numbers, etc., — that USDA plans to collect and maintain in a database. Where the database will be held and who will have access to that information are big questions. Producers also question the feasibility of enforcement, continued on page 22

The letter explained that the NAIS program is not an effective vehicle to achieve animal health and livestock market benefits. “The NAIS proposal was developed by the industrialized processing sector of our meat supply chain and it tramples over the rights and privileges of U.S. family farmers and ranchers,” the letter states. Instead of implementing NAIS, R-CALF USA informed DeLauro that the U.S. needs to develop a national strategy to improve livestock disease prevention, control and eradication. “Other than a resounding call for ‘No NAIS,’ the NAIS listening sessions held so far reveal that USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture) is violating the very principles of an effective disease strategy by

“. . . we are urging the entire Congress to follow DeLauro’s lead by putting a stop to NAIS.” held so far that USDA is knowingly introducing bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) from Canada, bovine tuberculosis (TB) from Mexico, fever ticks from Mexico, and also is trying to relax restrictions against foot and mouth disease (FMD) from South America. “It is unconscionable that USDA is knowingly introducing dangerous diseases into the U.S. while simultaneously blaming livestock producers for not cooperating with its failed NAIS program,” said R-CALF USA President/Region VI Director Max Thornsberry, a Missouri veterinarian

who also chairs the group’s animal health committee. “U.S. producers devote their lives to ensuring the health of their livestock only to have USDA purposely expose their herds to avoidable diseases. This is exactly the opposite of what we should expect from our government.” R-CALF USA CEO Bill Bullard testified at the NAIS listening session held in Rapid City, S.D., on June 11 and provided a list of USDA actions that demonstrate the agency has turned its back on protecting the health of the U.S. livestock herd. “We have informed Chairwoman DeLauro that R-CALF USA has provided an eight-point plan that should serve as a starting point for the development of a national disease strategy that would better protect the health of our livestock and the safety of meat produced from our livestock,” Bullard said. “Once NAIS is declared officially abandoned, we are hopeful that USDA will redirect its resources to begin development of a national disease prevention, control and eradication strategy. Meanwhile, we are urging the entire Congress to follow DeLauro’s ■ lead by putting a stop to NAIS.”

Full Senate to consider so-called Clean Water Legislation he Clean Water Restoration Act of 2009 (S. 787), federal legislation that would significantly harm private property rights, was recently approved by Senate committee on a 12-7 party-line vote and will now move to the full Senate. The New Mexico Cattle Growers’ Association (NMCGA) remains strongly opposed to this legislation, because of the impact it would have on private property rights and the burden it would place on landowners, said Alisa Ogden, NMCGA President, Loving. “We are extremely disappointed that the Senate Energy and Public Works (EPW) Committee passed this legislation, and will work hard to defeat it on the Senate floor.” The CWRA changes the definition of “waters of the United States” under the federal Clean Water Act by removing the word “navigable.” With this change, virtually all waters would fall under federal jurisdiction. Introduced by Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI), the bill has 24 co-sponsors. “This bill would exponentially increase the authority of the federal government, and get them even more involved in our daily operations,” Ogden said. “It would require federal permits for everyday work for many producers, and create a mountain of paperwork. Nothing in the legislation would result in cleaner water.” Under the CWRA, areas like small ponds, small and intermittent streams, creek beds, drainage ditches and mud holes, even if they only contain water during the rainy season or snowmelt, would be subject to federal regulation. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) oversees activities under the Clean Water Act. Currently, the agency has a backlog of over 15,000 permits. “As ranchers, we depend on clean water for the health of our livestock and forage,” Ogden said. “Burdening landowners with additional paperwork, and asking even more of a federal agency that has already fallen behind in permitting is not the way to achieve that goal.” A vote has not yet been scheduled on this legislation in the Senate, but it is important that producers and landowners to let Senators know how they feel about this issue, especially Senator Tom Udall, (D-NM) who is a member of the EPW ■ committee.

VS case confirmed ccording to New Mexico’s State Veterinarian, David Fly, USDA has recently notified New Mexico that a horse in DeBaca county has been confirmed as positive for the New Jersey strain of Vesicular Stomatitis. The premises has been under quarantine since June 18, 2009. No other horses have been exhibiting signs. At this time there are no other investigations. “New Mexico has a long history of this disease. Veterinarians around the state are well versed in reporting the disease. New Mexico will follow USDA guidelines as given in VS memo 555.17, May 30 2007,” says Fly. “Every effort will be made to assure that no animals exhibiting symptoms will be allowed to move. Sale barn, race track and event veterinarians will be ■ on notice to exercise due diligence.”

Emissions control myths and realities he United States is having better luck at controlling its emissions than most other countries, without the multibillion-dollar mandates of the Kyoto antiglobal warming treaty, says Drew Thornley, author of a new report, “Energy & the Environment: Myths & Facts,” published by the Manhattan Institute. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA): ■ Carbon-dioxide emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels increased 0.7 percent in the United States from 2000 to 2006, far below the worldwide increase of 21.6 percent. ■ During the same period, emissions grew 4.9 percent in Europe, 37.6 percent in

T

JULY 2009

the Middle East, and 52.3 percent in Asia. ■ Major developing nations saw big increases; for instance, India, Malaysia and China’s emissions increased 27.7 percent, 45.8 percent and 103 percent, respectively. In 2006, China passed the United States as the world’s biggest carbon emitter, and its lead is growing daily: ■ The EIA projects that China’s energyrelated emissions of carbon dioxide will exceed American emissions by almost 15 percent in 2010 and by 75 percent in 2030. ■ In 1990, China and India together accounted for 13 percent of the world’s emissions; in 2005, their contribution was 23 percent; and in 2030, they are expected to account for 34 percent of the world’s

emissions. The best-known U.S. carbon-cutting legislation provides a good idea of just how costly such plans run: ■ America’s Climate Security Act, also known as the Lieberman-Warner bill, called for emission reductions of 63 percent below the 2005 level by 2050 (President Obama’s much more ambitious plan is to cut emissions 83 percent below 2005 levels by 2050.). ■ The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) projected that LiebermanWarner could, by 2050, lower gross domestic product (GDP) by up to 6.9 percent, increase average gasoline prices by $1.40 per gallon, and raise electricity prices by 26 percent. Many private economic estimates continued on page 33


were considerably higher. ■ The EPA projected that America’s Climate Security Act could, by 2050, lower GDP by up to 6.9 percent, increase average gasoline prices by $1.40 per gallon, and raise electricity prices by 26 percent. We have a growing population with growing energy needs. The last thing we should do is implement policies that will reduce the supply of energy. We need more energy, and we need affordable energy. Adopting a carbon-cutting regime, à la Kyoto, will give us neither, says Thornley. Source: Drew Thornley, “Emissions Control, Myths, and Realities,” American Enterprise Institute, June 19, 2009.

unning Creek Ranch, Elizabeth, Colo., has been producing registered Limousin seedstock for the past 30 years. This large-scale operation was originally a commercial operation, and that foundation, which stretches back 38 years, gave ranch owner Joe Freund an opportunity to focus his goals for a seedstock operation. Running Creek Ranch is one of he country’s largest seedstock producers of any breed. Amongst the unmatched volume, you will find a quality herd of cattle backed by a variety of industry-leading genetics and years of performance evaluation. Our program is built around a highly adaptable and functional product that promises to excel in both the seedstock and mainline commercial industry. Whether you need one or a hundred, rest assured Running Creek Ranch can meet your needs. “Running Creek genetics reflect practical, functional cattle emphasizing reproductive efficiency,” says Joe, “and mature cow size must be synergistic with the environment in which the cattle are expected to perform and excel.” Running Creek markets around 300 registered, performance-tested bulls annually, all at private treaty. All the bulls undergo a stringent culling process at weaning and yearling ages, and if they make the grade, they will be performance tested as coming twos. With 1,600 mother cows in production, Running Creek Ranch is the largest breeder of Limousin in the country.

The Freund operation is also heavily involved in feeding Running Creek-bred cattle through to the feedlot and on to natural beef marketing programs. Running Creek markets 6,500 to 7,000 fed cattle annually through natural beef programs. The ranch makes the data on the various bloodlines available to their commercial customers. In this manner, Running Creek and its bull customers can identify the bulls that improve profitability in different herds and in a variety of environmental situations. Running Creek Ranch has made a strong commitment to the commercial cattle industry, as evidenced by their cooperative efforts with Colorado State University and the North American Limousin Foundation on several

research projects to study the relationships between reproductive, calving ease, growth and carcass traits. Because of Joe Freund’s experience as a commercial cowman, he was determined to developbalanced EPD criteria by utilizingintensive culling and production andperformance data. As a part of Running Creek’s commitment to helping its commercial customers achieve higher levels of profitability, Joe Freund offers a premium calf buyback program for Running Creek’s bull customers. The ranch’s highprofile involvement with natural beef programs is a growing part of its profit optimization efforts.

As a part of Running Creek’s commitment to helping its commercial customers achieve higher levels of profitability, Joe Freund offers a premium calf buy-back program for Running Creek’s bull customers. The ranch’s high-profile involvement with natural beef programs is a growing part of its profit optimization efforts. Running Creek’s bull calves are “dry-wintered” in preparation for returning to grass in the spring. The calves are weaned on a pound of oats per 100 pounds of body weight and grass hay. Thirty days after weaning, the ration is changed to corn, and the hay ration is increased. In February, the bull calves are put on feed at Double J Feeders, Ault, Colorado. Their ration is designed to allow the calves to gain 2.25 to 2.5 pounds per day. On May 1, the bulls are culled, and those that survived the culling are shipped to summer pasture at the Hoyt Division of the ranch. They run on grass through the summer, and on October 1 they go back to Double J Feeders, where they are weighed and measured for frame score, muscle score, body condition, and visual and disposition evaluations, prior to being put on a 120-day performance test. The 70 percent silage/ haylage and 30 percent cracked corn ration is designed to allow the bulls to express their genetic potential for growth while not exceeding a body score of 6.

At the conclusion of the feeding period, the bulls are moved to the main ranch headquarters, where buyers can evaluate them. Running Creek offers to keep all bulls until May 1 at no additional cost to the buyer. If that isn’t enough, Running Creek also offers to deliver bulls to the buyer’s ranch at no charge. They also offer a “salvage bull” program whereby they pay a premium for their customers’ older bulls as they are exchanged for new crop bulls. The Running Creek bull marketing program is, in a word, complete. One of our program’s staples is the volume of cattle we offer. Nowhere in the country will you find a larger selection of 2-year-old Limousin bulls and bred females. We specialize in the production of approximately 250 2-year-old bulls and 300 bred heifers.

E

Dr. J. Lush (world renowned geneticist, Iowa State 1939) said, (quote) “The hybrid vigor from crossing two lines of pure blood would be of a very short period. The gene trait for consistency will noticeably decrease in the third generation. If the cross breeding program continues, the loss of other essential gene traits will also continue to decrease in each of the following generations. Gene pools broaden as new blood is infused and hundreds of additional gene trait combinations will occur. This results in a much wider variation in the new calf crop”. Therefore, it should be of no surprise that the present daily slaughter is at the lowest level for carcass quality since record keeping began. A major packer reported that only 16% to 22% of the daily beef slaughter makes the choice grade. We ultrasound a combination of 200 young 36

We ultrasounded 85 eleven month old heifers that averaged 4.47 in the marbling trait. Only three heifers scored lower than the superior score of 3.5 (3.42, 3.39, 3.28).

Sheep producers vote to keep lamb checkoff heep producers across the country recently voted to keep the lamb checkoff, which funds research and promotional activities, in place. “The projects funded by the checkoff are critical to our industry’s survival,” said Joan Kincaid, New Mexico Wool Growers Inc. (NMWGI) President, Pinon. “If we want to stay in business, we have to help ourselves and get out there and promote our product. No one is going to do that for us. I’m so glad that producers came together to continue this important work.” With the passage of the referendum, sheep producers, exporters and feeders will continue to be assessed $.005 (one half cent) per pound upon the sale of a live animal.

S

aren’t making sure they are aware and educated.” Under the Commodity Promotion, Research and Information Act of 1996, which authorized the checkoff, the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture was required to hold a vote of producers not more than seven years after assessments began to see whether they should continue. Assessments started July 1, 2002, and the vote was held throughout the month of February, 2009.

For the program to continue, it had to be supported by a majority of voters and a majority of the production represented in the vote. Eighty-five percent of ballots nationwide were cast in favor of the checkoff program, and 14.9 percent were opposed. In production terms, 93 percent of the production represented by ballots cast was in favor of continuing the checkoff. In New Mexico, 15 producers voted in favor of the program, and two voted against. An overwhelming majority of the production represented by the vote was in ■ favor of continuation of the checkoff.

Keith W. Avery’s art featured at Kansas museum he Prairie Museum of Art & History, Colby, Kans., is hosting an exhibition of the art and poetry of New Mexico, artist Keith W. Avery throughout the months of July and August 2009. Visitors to this exhibition will be treated to a showing of art of the highest caliber. Avery, who died in June 2005, left behind an extensive collection of western paintings that realistically depict horses and cowboy life. His highly sought after work was completed in eight mediums, and Avery’s art was never completed on a totally white background. The renowned western artist’s paintings have appeared on the covers of the Quarter Horse Journal, Western Horseman and New Mexico Stockman often over the years. His articles have also been published frequently. Born in Lansing, Michigan, in 1921, Avery grew up with the encouragement of his father, an internationally honored master photographer. The family modeled a strong work ethic for young

T

Keith, one that would positively influence him throughout life. A graduate of New Mexico State University, he was also the recipient of an honorary doctor of letters from NMSU. In 1994 he was awarded the New Mexico’s Governor’s Award for Excellence in Art for his successful artistic achievements. Avery’s widow, Carol Haddan Avery, still resides in New Mexico. Keith Avery was a man of many talents and interests, but his art is considered by many to be his crowning accomplishment. It was always his simple aspiration to enrich the lives of others by sharing himself and his talents. His art is his legacy to the world. The Prairie Museum of Art & History is located at 1905 S. Franklin in Colby, Kans. Museum hours are 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m., Monday-Friday, and 1:00 p.m.– 5:00 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. There is no charge to view the Keith W. Avery exhibition.

A shock at the pump ising gasoline prices are back. Millions of Americans at the end of May faced prices for regular gas averaging $2.35 per gallon, a full 30 cents higher than the beginning of the month and nearly 60 cents more than at the start of the year. But don’t expect any help from Congress. In fact, Washington is working on a bill that would raise costs further, says Ben Lieberman is a senior policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation. The proposed American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 (the WaxmanMarkey proposal) essentially would limit

R

how much gasoline and other fossil fuels Americans can use. The aim is to cut emissions of carbon dioxide from energy use; yet, prices would have to rise high enough so the public would be forced to drive less and meet the ever-tightening energy rationing targets. How high? A Heritage Foundation analysis estimates that gasoline costs will rise $118 annually for a typical four-person household once the bill’s provisions take effect in 2012: ■ That’s about 10 cents more per gallon, and the impact goes up as the bill demands tougher energy use restrictions each year, tacking on an additional $1.23 to the inflation-adjusted price per gallon by 2035. ■ Electricity is also hit hard; in fact, the main target of the bill is coal, which affordably provides 50 percent of America’s electricity. ■ The costs would filter down to consumers and boost electric bills by $235 in 2012, rising to $468 by 2035; that’s a 90 percent increase over current rates. ■ The bill also would cost jobs, especially in the manufacturing sector.

each other, and both fell across the barrel of the same canon. It must be noted that about half of McRae’s officers and men also died at Valverde. Thus did McRae’s Battery become famous. One observer of the battle wrote, “Lieutenant [sic] McRae commanding the battery, fought and died like a hero, defending his guns.” Confederate General Sibley wrote to Alec’s father, “The universal voice of this army attests to the gallantry of your son. He fell vailently [sic] defending the battery he commanded.” McRae was originally interred at Fort Craig, but in 1867 his remains were removed to West Point. Fort McRae, New Mexico, was established near the presentday town of Truth or Consequences in 1863. It became home to units of Buffalo soldiers after the Civil War, and was used as a base against Apaches. It closed in 1876. McRae Canyon nearby is a reminder of the intrepid officer, a hero in New Mexico’s Civil War. ¹ McRae didn’t initially graduate from Newark College, but was later granted a liberal arts degree. A note on sources: Books dealing with the Civil War in New Mexico, including Don Albert’s two volumes, Rebels on the Rio Grande and The Battle of Glorieta, generally mention McRae’s Battery or Fort McRae, as do general references such a New Mexico Frontier Military Place Names and Roadside History of New Mexico. The best source, though, is Destiny at Valverde: The Life and Death of Alexander McRae by Marion Cox Grinstead, published in 1992 by the Socorro Historical Society. Don Bullis’ two volume work, New Mexico: A Biographical Dictionary, received the 2009 Lansing B. Bloom Award from the Historical Society of New Mexico at the New Mexico History Conference in Santa Fe in April. His latest book, New Mexico & the Politicians of the Past, was issued earlier this year.

Grazing Lands Initiative to link ranchers and conservationists razing lands make up between twothirds and three-fourths of the national land base. The wise management of these lands has environmental and economic implications that exceed common perception, says Bob Drake, Chairman of the Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative (GLCI). “Any serious student or practitioner of conservation, land use or ecosystem management cannot reasonably ignore the importance of grazing lands,” Drake says. “The sheer quantity of land involved demands a serious dialogue among ranchers, conservationists, educators, environmentalists, economists, government agencies and land managers.” The Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative is hosting a forum to facilitate just such a dialogue. On December 13-16, 2009, GLCI will host its 4th national conference in Reno, NV, to facilitate the exchange of information on successful “cutting edge” grazing management technologies — especially applied research on grazing lands, public policy implications of grazing, issues related to the agricultural-urban interface, and the economic and marketing implications of

grazing. One thing that sets GLCI apart from other conferences is its focus on ranchers as presenters. “We know experts come from academia, government, and the non-profit world and we welcome them all, but we also look for the “cowboy expert” who has gained his — or her — expertise through long hours with livestock and first-hand exposure to all sorts of elements — natural, economic and political,” says Drake. In conjunction with hosting the conference in Reno, GLCI in 2009 will give increased focus to western grazing issues. However, the conference will continue its past format of providing information along four “tracks” that will also include Eastern, Midwestern and dairy grazing issues. Some of the issues to be highlighted include the value of rotational grazing and of riparian habitat, carbon sequestration, and the flexibility within grazing systems. Information on registration and/or exhibitor opportunities is at www.glci. org. Early bird registration of $260 is available through Oct. 1, 2009. Our web■ site is: http://www.glci.org

W

eaver Ranch, headquartered 15 miles north of Fort Collins, Colo., is owned and managed by Adrian Weaver and has been home to registered Angus cattle for 49 years. Most of the cow herd is on the Cottonwood Ranch at Sedgwick, Colo. Weaver Ranch started its registered Angus operation at Tie Siding, Wyo., in the spring of 1960, with Eileenmere cows. In the fall of 1960, the Weavers bought more cows from Dale Redding’s herd at Minitare, Neb. The Weavers purchased their present ranch headquarters at Owl Canyon in 1969 and the Cottonwood Ranch at Sedgwick in 1988. Over the years, the Weavers have utilized Artificial Insemination (A.I.) in their breeding program, choosing sires with low birth Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs), high growth EPDs and high carcass quality. A.I. sires they’ve used include: S S Rito 0715 OH3, Bon View Winton 1342, Baldridge Oscar, QAS Traveler 23-4, Scotch Cap, Nichols Trademark, U.G. Herschel 1062, Franco of Wil We, Emulation N Bar 5522, GAR Sleep Easy 1009, VDAR New Trend 315 and most recently, TC Stockman 365. They’ve developed

Bulls they have developed and used as herd sires include: Weavers Traveler 87-257, Weavers Traveler 9196, Weavers Traveler 6958, Weavers Math 92-18 and Weavers Sleep Easy 5176. Weaver Ranch Angus have been bred for performance and good disposition. The Weavers have maintained records on their cattle since the mid-1960s and have selected for easycalving and growthy cattle. They also participate in the AHIR (Angus Herd Improvement Records) program offered by the American Angus Assn. The results of the Weaver breeding program have been impressive. In 1997, Weavers Traveler 87-257 received the Pathfinder Bull Award, and 32 of their cows received the Pathfinder Cow Award from the American Angus Assn. The operation received the Outstanding Seedstock Producer award in 1998 from the Colorado Cattlemen’s Assn., and in 1999, they were recognized with the Pioneer Breeder Award from the Colorado Angus Assn. At their annual production sale held in February, the Weavers offer 125 coming two-year-old registered Angus bulls and 100 bred commercial heifers at the ranch north of Fort Collins. The heifers are bred to light birth weight Angus bulls, so calving should be a breeze. Free delivery is offered within 100 miles on bulls, adding 50 miles for each additional bull purchased. Weaver Ranch also sells semen on Weavers Math 92-18, Weavers Traveler 6958 and Weavers Sleep Easy 5176. Contact the ranch for more details about their upcoming sale offerings. Sale bulls and yearling heifers are summered at Tie Siding, where the elevation is 7,500 feet, to develop good feet and legs; PAP tested there in September; then brought to the ranch headquarters at Owl Canyon, where they are put on pasture and fed ground corn and alfalfa hay. The yearling heifers come to Tie Siding with clean-up bulls. Weaver Ranch provides a full set of EPDs and weights; ultrasound data for ribeye, intramuscular fat, rib and rump fat; and scrotal measurements to their buyers. Bulls are tested for fertility, trichomonas, and susceptibility to high-altitude brisket disease. “We believe our breeding program, built on the balanced traits of performance, easy calving and desirable carcass traits, and combined with proven performance records, good disposition, sound structural correctness and top carcass quality, will provide our customers with outstanding genetics to enhance their breeding programs!” says Adrian Weaver. To improve your herd with these balanced Angus genetics, call Adrian Weaver at 970/568-3898 or email him at WeaverRch @aol.com. Visitors are welcome to stop by the ranch, located at 3000 West County Road #70, north of Fort Collins, CO 80524. Check out the ranch’s website at www.weaverranch.com. JULY 2009

BEEF

COUNCIL

bullhorn BSE Web Site Updated with Help of Nine International Experts BY DINA CHACÓN-REITZEL, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, NEW MEXICO BEEF COUNCIL

I

’ve heard some fellow cattle producers say that just one checkoff achievement – funding the industry’s epic response to the United States’ first BSE case in 2003 – was by itself well worth the checkoff investments we’ve all made over the past 23 years. Certainly the checkoff has helped to fund many other beef market milestones, and it’s the job of our vigilant Issues and Reputation Management program to safeguard the public perception of those market advances, especially when it concerns beef safety. Without a doubt, when the first U.S. BSE case was announced in December 2003, our checkoff-funded crisis response team was so quick to reach consumers, media, producers and others with facts that a truly catastrophic industry crisis was averted. Through it all, consumer confidence in beef remained at about 90 percent. And it remains that way to this day. Although the United States hasn’t had a BSE case since 2006, the subject remains a significant topic in the scientific community and in the media. Whether discussing trade negotiations or a beef recall, the public is still interested in U.S. BSE regulations and the multiple measures in place to protect the safety of our product. That’s why the checkoff-funded Issues and Reputation Management team has just launched a complete refresh of the web site, BSEInfo.org. This resource, which started as a print piece in 1998 and moved online in 1999, is the industry’s single source for data on bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), often referred to as “mad cow.” It’s also a comprehensive information source for other transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE) diseases, such as Creutzfeldt-Jakob (CJD), variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob (vCJD), scrapie and chronic wasting disease (CWD). What makes the site even more impressive is the world-class level of TSE knowledge it houses. Nine top TSE experts

served as scientific reviewers for site content, working within their own areas of expertise. These experts came from the National Institutes of Health, the American Veterinary Dina Chacon-Reitzel Medical Association and the National Prion Disease Pathology Surveillance Center, to name a few. BSEInfo.org now provides consumers, media, scientific/government influencers, state partner organizations and beef producers with accurate, timely information about BSE. It’s one of only a few sites to offer such a comprehensive range of material, which is probably why it typically draws 2,000 unique visitors from around the world each week. The site gives details on every aspect of TSE diseases, including definitions, incidence/cases, transmission, clinical symptoms, diagnosis, prevention and control. For a visual global overview, try the inter-

active maps that highlight the geographic distribution of BSE cases worldwide to date. However, you don’t have to be a scientist to understand and make use of the information on this site. The home page is set up to direct visitors – whether they’re beef industry users, consumers, reporters or scientists – to the pages most likely to meet their information needs. For visitors who want to expand their search, BSEInfo.org is also a portal to other government, international and Web industry sites containing related information about regulations, human health and trade negotiations. The entire Issues and Reputation Management program, which creates materials like this web site, is another example of checkoff investments at work, especially in critical, behind-the-scenes jobs. Thanks to producer checkoff dollars, the industry can depend on an issues/crisis management team as far-sighted and prepared today as they were when the first U.S. BSE case emerged in 2003. I believe the extensive update of BSEInfo.org reflects this industry’s diligent and determined effort to seek and provide the most current, scientifically valid information, whenever questions arise, in any type of circumstance, from any of our multiple audiences and stakeholders.

Making Beef Good To Go How the Checkoff is Exploring Convenient Beef Products to Suit Today’s Mobile Consumers

N

ever before have the signs been more obvious about how consumers live and eat. For example, time pressed consumers choose convenience over all other factors for food, including: ■ healthfulness, price and taste. ■ 65 percent try to eat healthier meals, but 33 percent say they don’t have the time to prepare or eat healthy meals. ■ 47 percent of consumers say they would likely use curbside takeout if their favorite table-service restaurant offered it. ■ 19 percent of all meals are now eaten inside cars. ■ 21 percent of children ages 6-17 are overweight; that number is expected to rise to 33 percent by 2020.

A Good Sport

BY LEE PITTS

watched Michael Jordan play in a Final Four game, saw the first World Series game ever played in beautiful Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, witnessed first hand how crazy Ohio State football fans are on game day, saw Kareem play in the fabulous Forum and used to go to the Rose Bowl Game every year. But I have never enjoyed myself at a sporting event as much as a day at the horse races in Australia. I fell in love with horse racing as a teenager and the sport became an obsession with me the year we spent in Australia, where practically every small town had its own racing meet. That’s why it breaks my heart to see horse racing decline in popularity so badly. And I don’t understand it. People will watch NASCARS go round and round a track but they won’t watch horses do the same thing. And horses have much more personality than a

Ford, Chevy or Tony Stewart. I don’t understand why people will watch soccer and hockey but not horse racing. Horses have much more to recommend them than our spoiled athletes; they aren’t paid $100 million like A-Rod or Manny, rarely kill or rape anyone, they aren’t tattooed up like the Denver Nuggets and the equine’s English is just as good as most modern day football players. And yet the sport is racing backwards in popularity. Part of the problem, I’m sure, is that there hasn’t been a Triple Crown winner in many years to capture our fancy. And young horses being euthanized on the track is not good public relations either. We all fell in love with Barbaro but when he died many people fell out of love with the sport. There needs to be more cowboys winning races like this year’s Kentucky Derby and fewer sheiks and billionaires for

people to really accept the game. But if you ask me the biggest thing that has hurt horse racing is off track betting. I know, it has increased the money wagered on races but it has also meant that people could play the ponies without being there in person. And there is nothing quite like a day at the races to make a person appreciate the sport. The rows of bettors at the bookie joints in those big fancy Vegas casinos might as well be betting on corn futures. (I hope I haven’t given anyone an idea.) What was so great about horse racing in Australia was that the entire town turned out to watch a bunch of nags from neighboring farms and cattle stations run the opposite way around the track. (In the southern hemisphere even the water swirls around the drain backwards!) Many of the horses arrived that morning at the track in the same stock trailers that hauled bullocks the previous day. The rural folks came to town in their best clothes and it was all very civilized as we spent the time in between races in a big tent drinking cordials and Aussie beer, and eating meat pies and chips. continued on page 58

The only racing guides were written by local amateur hacks and if a local horse had a bad outing or two the owner just changed its name. The bookies all stood on boxes in a common area with chalkboards above their heads and fistfuls of cash in their hands. If they weren’t getting enough action they’d simply change the odds on their chalkboards to attract more business. It was all very free market. We all watched the horses warm up and many people, myself included, placed our bets on how the horses looked and acted. I always preferred my horses to be calm, but not comatose, and if it went to the bathroom right before the race I considered that a very favorable sign. (Less weight to carry.) Believe it or not, I was actually quite good at picking winners and I’ll never forget the time I picked a horse with 95 to 1 odds and he won! I had placed $20 on him and I figured with a few more days like that I wouldn’t need the education I was in Australia to get. So you can imagine how disheartened I was when I went to the bookie’s stand to collect my considerable winnings and he wasn’t there. Vanished without a trace. Probably changed his ■ name, too.

“No Regrets” global warming solutions suggested any proposed solutions have been offered in the hysteria over global warming which would be “much more costly to society than the danger it seeks to avert,” according to a June report by National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA). “The world will surely regret it if billions of people are mired in poverty because resources are diverted to solve a nonexistent or trivial problem. On the other hand, the world would regret doing nothing if human-made global warming is a serious problem,” says the report authored by Iain Murray, of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, and H. Sterling Burnett, a senior fellow with the National Center for Policy Analysis. They suggest “no regrets” programs that would prove beneficial whether or not human activities are creating a global warming problem without sacrificing living standards. These policies would reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase energy efficiency, reduce harms associated with global warming or increase the world’s capabilities to deal with climate change associated problems. Here are 10 of them:

M

Eliminate all subsidies for fuel use; Reduce regulatory barriers to new nuclear power plants; ■ Reduce wildfires through alternative forest management institutions; ■ Liberalize approval of biotechnology; ■ Repeal the National Flood Insurance Program; ■ Increase use of toll roads with congestion pricing; ■ Remove older cars from the road; ■ Reform air traffic control systems; ■ Remove regulatory barriers to innovation; and ■ Encourage breakthrough in new technology. Favoring an “X” prize competition that rewards successful independent research —- like the government and private competitions that encouraged early development of the automobile and the airplane — could be a solution, say Murray and Burnett. ■ ■

HORNED CATTLE: They are developed from the “Paydirt” cattle that have worked so well for over thirty years in Arizona and New Mexico. These cattle are well known for their excellent fertility, longevity, and being “easy keeping” cattle. A Grandson of “Paydirt” is used as one of our “Herd Sires” today. To get an outcross bloodline we have crossed the “Paydirt” cows with “Pure Gold” bloodline from Colyer Herefords, the cattle from this outcross are exceptional. POLLED CATTLE: Our Polled cattle are proven producers, they are the right size, are great mothers and good milkers. We are very proud of them, they have some of the best milk EPD’s you will find anywhere; (we wean calves at eight months old that weigh over 800 pounds). Our polled Herd Sire is from the last crop of calves produced by the famous “Frank Felton” herd from Marysville, Missouri, before Frank passed away. He was recognized by the AHA as one of America’s best Hereford producers. Our herd bull was selected as a calf by Mr. Felton himself, and has exceeded our expectations, his calves are absolutely super. The horned and the polled cattle are both easy keeping cattle bred to thrive on the ranges common to Arizona and New Mexico. Cows that rebreed and calve every year are the backbone of every commercial cattle operation. Nine Cross cows breed and raise their calves on the same type of range our customers have, we know our cattle will work for you. QUARTER HORSES: Our horses are bred to be gentle, have excellent dispositions, and be very high performance horses, the right size with the right conformation. All of our horses carry the blood of the famous “Three Bars”. If you are looking for good horses, we have them.

Are Flies Bugging your Cattle? by ROBERT WELLS very spring, our thoughts turn from calving season to breeding season, green grass, rainy days and warmer temperatures. But with the growing pastures and pleasant temperatures come some disadvantages as well — fly season is upon us. Flies are a nuisance for humans, but an even greater nuisance for livestock. Additionally, flies can spread disease, from anaplasmosis to pink eye. They are also responsible for a tremendous amount of lost production in the form of decreased weight gain or lower milk yields. Rather than eating, cattle will spend time stomping and tail-swishing, lying down, standing in groups or in the middle of a stock pond. It doesn’t take a large number of flies to have an impact on your cattle’s production. As few as 100 to 200 flies per side is enough to impact stocker gains by 50 pounds during the summer. This is greater than or comparable to the weight gain achieved through a growth implant program. If you can see more than a hand-

E

sized patch of flies on each side, typically behind the shoulders, of your cattle, there are enough to be a problem. There are many methods of fly control. Some of the more common methods are: pour-on, sprays, rubs or dusters, ear tags, feed-through additives and biological control. Some methods work better than others and each has its place. Using a combination of methods will afford you the most effective control. Also, remember to change the class or family of chemical you use periodically to reduce resistance. The following are a few thoughts on the various control methods: ■ Pour-ons and sprays provide a good initial kill with two to six weeks residual. Sprays will typically wear off faster. Rainfall or cattle lingering in stock tanks reduces the duration of protection. ■ Rubs and dusters are an effective method of control once the cattle associate the use of the applicator apparatus to a reduced insect load. It is best to place the applicator next to mineral feeders, water sources or an area that will force the cattle to rub up against it. Additionally, the chemical will need to be recharged once

every one-two weeks or after a rain. ■ Ear tags are a very effective seasonlong treatment, but remember to cut the tags out at the end of the season. Leaving the tags in builds resistance to the chemical. Change the active ingredient from year to year. If you used a synthetic pyrethroid this year, change to an organophosphate or organochlorine tag next year. ■ Feed additives are effective in stopping the fly life cycle. But one of the biggest obstacles is ensuring consistent and adequate intake of the product to have effective control. ■ Biological control in the form of fly wasps, sometimes called fly predators, is also effective. Some feedlots have started using this method as the fly wasps are considered a natural, nonchemical method of control. Since they are weak fliers, the wasps must be placed in areas of high manure concentration, i.e., feedlots or horse stables. They do not reproduce so they have to be replenished monthly during the fly season. Remember to follow label directions and applicable withdrawal times prior to slaughter. Getting in control of your fly problem will make your cattle more com■ fortable and your wallet happier.

Developing Replacement Heifers by JOHN WINDER ne of the most difficult aspects of cow-calf production is getting yearling heifers properly developed to breed at one year of age. This is particularly difficult in spring-calving herds where heifers must grow and develop during the dormant season. Ideally, about 50 percent more heifers should have been selected at weaning time than will be

O

needed as replacements. The additional heifers are kept for two reasons. First, this allows additional selection before breeding. There are always a few heifers that do not develop adequately. Second, conception rates in limited breeding seasons are rarely 100 percent. To compensate, plan to breed 1525 percent more heifers than are needed as replacements. Another thing that should be consid-

ered at the time of initial selection is age. Age is a major factor affecting puberty in beef heifers. Beef heifers usually reach puberty between 10 and 15 months of age (if properly developed). Do not waste time and money developing heifers that will not be old enough to breed. Once heifers are selected at weaning time, producers should carefully plan their development programs. If a stepwise procedure is used to plan and implement heifer development, many problems can be avoided. Step 1:

Establish Target Weight and Rate of Gain. Yearling heifers should be bred about 30 days before the main cow herd. This gives them more time to recover from the stress of calving so they can rebreed with the main cow herd. Plan your breeding time accordingly. Heifers should weigh at least 65 percent of their mature weight at the onset of breeding. The following example outlines the process of establishing performance goals. Estimated Mature Weight of Cow Herd: 1200 pounds Average Weaning Weight of Selected Heifers: 550 pounds Weaning Date: November 1 Breeding Date: April 1 Calculate Target Weight: 1,200 pounds x .65 = 780 pounds Days to Reach Target: 150 Required Average Daily Gain: (780 550) / 150 = 1.53 pounds per day Step 2:

Plan Feeding Program. There are two strategies that can be used to achieve desired breeding weight. The first (and most common) is to try to maintain a relatively constant rate of gain. In the example above, target rate of gain would be 1.53 pounds per day. A diet capable of producing this rate of gain must contain approximately 10 percent crude protein and 60 percent TDN. Total daily feed intake must be 15-17 pounds of dry matter per head per day during the entire period. This type of diet could come from free choice high quality hay, hay and supplement, small grains pasture or other sources. A second strategy allows producers to let heifers grow fairly slowly during winter followed by a more rapid growth phase in the early spring. This “slow-fast” method is often cheaper than constant weight gain because less body weight is maintained during the first 2-3 months. continued on page 63

However, you must be able to achieve higher rates of gain during the last 60 days. With this method, gains of about .5 pounds per day can be tolerated for the first 60-90 days. This rate of gain can be attained by feeding about 2 pounds of cottonseed cake per day with free choice native hay or comparable feeds. During the last 60 days, heifers must gain 2.5-3 pounds per day to compensate for the slow gain period. During this period, a high quality diet must be available in adequate amounts. About 18 pounds of dry matter containing 11 percent crude protein and 65 percent TDN will be required daily to produce needed gains. Research results indicate no differences in subsequent performance of heifers developed on constant or “slowfast” regimes.

Step 3:

Monitor Heifers During Development. Too often producers fail to realize that performance of heifers is inadequate until it is too late. Regardless of which development program you use, observe heifers carefully. If possible, take periodic weights on at least a few heifers to monitor performance. ■ Adjust feeding accordingly.

Parasite tied to global bee deaths

Tax on livestock methane emissions blocked

he sudden collapse of honeybee colonies around the world, a condition identified in 2004, is most likely caused by the parasite Nosema ceranae, not the human causes alleged by environmental activist groups, Spanish researchers have reported in “Environmental Microbiology Reports”, a journal of the Society for Applied Microbiology. The researchers reached their conclusion after studying a large number of affected colonies and finding Nosema ceranae as the only common thread among them: ■ Since 2004, honeybee populations around the world have been succumbing to Colony Collapse Disorder, characterized by worker bees leaving their hives and dying off without returning. ■ Loss rates have varied from 30 percent to 90 percent of regional colonies. ■ With no known cause to account for the die-offs, environmental activists blamed everything from pesticides to cell phones to global warming. In April, Dr. Mariano Higes, lead researcher at the Bee Pathology Laboratory in Spain, announced scientists had found the likely cause. The parasite Nosema ceranae was found in all the bee

n mid-June, the House Appropriations Committee adopted the Tiahrt Amendment preventing the EPA from regulating livestock as a greenhouse gas source. U.S. Congressman Todd Tiahrt (R-Goddard) offered the amendment during consideration of the FY2010 Interior and Environment Appropriations bill. The provision blocks the EPA from mandating Clean Air Act permits for greenhouse gases emitted by livestock, including carbon dioxide and methane. The amendment was adopted with broad bipartisan support. “Farmers and ranchers could soon face unprecedented taxes, excessive reporting requirements and hefty fees if the government decides to regulate livestock greenhouse gas sources,” said Tiahrt in a statement. “By blocking the EPA from regulating livestock emissions, we won an important victory for agriculture producers whose businesses could have seen profits erased. “President Obama has made it clear he supports regulating all greenhouse gases. If his plan is enacted, regulations and fees would strangle small and large farm operations alike. EPA permits could cost as much as $175 per milk cow and more than $85 per head for beef cattle — nearly the ■ profit margin.

T

populations they studied. Once that was discovered, the Spanish science team introduced fumagillin — an antibiotic — into the affected bee colonies. It cleared the parasite and halted colony collapse. Many colonies began to rebuild their numbers shortly thereafter. This is the same thing that happened with frogs when amphibians were declining, says H. Sterling Burnett, a senior fellow at the National Center for Policy Analysis. The environmental activists were quick to point their finger at global warming, pesticides and other human activities, when it turned out entirely natural factors were the cause. Of course, after the activists’ media allies sounded the alarm that pesticides and global warming are killing frogs and bees, they became strangely silent about reporting the exculpatory evidence that natural factors are to blame, says Burnett. The general public has no idea that humans in fact were not to blame, unless they subscribe to and read academic journals. Source: E.

Artificial Insemination can work for commercial producers by KYLE STUTTS rtificial insemination (AI) is one of the most effective tools available to enhance the productivity and profitability of beef cattle production systems. Even though this tool has been commercially available for more than 65 years, it is still dramatically underused in today’s beef herds. Less than 5 percent of the nation’s beef cows are bred using AI, with the majority of these breedings taking place in the seedstock and club calf sectors. A properly managed artificial insemination program can yield long-term benefits. AI is not just for purebred breeders, but has applications at the commercial level, as well. The advantages of using AI are numerous and well documented. Some of them include: ■ The ability to use sires of superior genetic merit; ■ Rapid improvement in traits important to an operation; ■ The ability to mate specific sires to individual cows; ■ Elimination of separate breeding pastures; ■ Elimination or reduction of disease transmission; ■ Increased genetic merit of retained replacement heifers; and ■ When combined with estrous synchronization, a shorter calving season can be achieved, resulting in a more consistent, uniform calf crop. For the commercial cattleman, this could mean increased weaning weights, improved post-weaning performance, enhanced carcass value and more productive replacement heifers. The usual arguments against AI programs are lack of time, additional labor and the cost of implementing a program. AI pro-

A

grams do require more intensive management of the herd. To be successful, a producer must have a sound nutrition program that keeps the cattle in good condition, an efficient record-keeping system, an effective herd health program, adequate working facilities, accurate estrus detection and a well-trained AI technician. The primary reason for undesirable results with an AI program is poor management in one or more of these areas. In the past, the greatest demand on time and labor came from proper estrus or “heat” detection. Recent research in reproductive physiology has improved and refined estrous synchronization systems, making them more feasible for beef producers. Today, there is technology available that allows producers to set the time and date they want to inseminate their cows. Several estrous synchronization programs allow producers to successfully inseminate cows at a predetermined, fixed time, resulting in pregnancy rates similar to those achieved with estrus detection. A couple of recent economic studies have indicated that several estrous synchronization/AI programs cost less than natural service and several others have costs that are only marginally higher than natural service. In addition, the model used to evaluate these programs did not include the added value of AI-sired replacement heifers, which will increase the overall productivity and quality of the cow herd over time. If you are ready to take the next step in improving the quality of your herd or simply want to reduce the number of bulls needed or eliminate bulls altogether, I strongly encourage you to con■ sider implementing an AI program in your herd.

Walter D. “Wally” Armer, Jr. ARIZONA’S CATTLEMAN OF THE YEAR By GLENDA PRICE ally Armer says when he was named Cattleman of the Year he was “surprised and honored.” Like most everyone else involved in agriculture, Wally works at doing the best he can for the industry. The difference is his best is better than most, although he certainly would never say that. He figures he’s just doing his job — again, like most other agriculture leaders. He served as Arizona Cattle Growers’ Association president from 1992 to 1995, and always has been active in both the Arizona and the Southern Arizona Cattlemen’s Protective Association, the Arizona Beef Council and NCBA. A University of Arizona graduate, Wally also gives of his time and substance to the university’s foundation, the college of agriculture’s advisory board and other UofA endeavors. He recently was reappointed to the Arizona State Parks Board, having served from 1997 to 2003. He is a farm and ranch appraiser, and

has the Accredited Rural Appraiser (ARA) and MAI designations. Wally, in the midst of all his other activities, had an army career. “I was two years on active duty and 28 years in the reserves,” he explains. “I was on active duty before things really heated up in Vietnam, so I didn’t go over there even though I was an infantry officer. By the time things heated up I was either off active duty or about to be off, so I avoided that — which didn’t hurt my feelings. Also, I switched from infantry to tanks after awhile. That’s better than walking.” Most of his active duty was in Fort Benning, Georgia and Fort Ord, California. All these activities, in the end, are secondary in importance for this family. The ranch comes first. Wally calls it his “cow habit.” The family’s Double X Ranch is near Benson. He and his wife, Lew, along with Wally’s sister and her husband are the owner-operators. “We’re strictly a crossbred cow-calf operation,” he says. “Historically, we’ve

had Hereford-Charbray cows. We’ve been using Red Angus bulls for several years now, and keeping replacement heifers, which we breed back to Red Angus.” “We calve year-round, and leave our bulls out year-long,” Wally says. “In this dry country we figure a late calf is better than no calf.” They had a good shower about the middle of May. That was a red-letter day, because they don’t usually expect any rain until probably the 4th of July. “If the monsoons come then, I’m happy,” he says. Wally’s wife, the former Lillian Elizabeth Wolter, came to Nogales as a high school freshman. “Her father was in the government,” says Wally. “That’s where I first met her. Her initials were L-e-w, so she’s always gone by Lew.” They raised two children. Walter III, 41, lives in San Francisco and is in real estate development. Daughter Christy is married and lives in Tucson. Christy has two children while Walter has one. Wally says they plan to keep that ranch because “number one, we enjoy it and number two we think it’s beneficial for the grandkids to know a little about it. We always encourage them to bring their continued on page 67


friends out and show them there’s more to the food supply than going to the grocery store.” He adds, “Our daughter and her husband are very active in the ranch’s operation, but as we all know it’s hard to make a living at it. You’ve gotta do something else.” Still, the Armer family’s “cow habit” is in their genes. Wally is a member of the fourth generation of this Arizona ranching family. It all began with the arrival, in the mid1800s, of young Henry Armer from Ireland. This teenager worked as a mule skinner on the Erie Canal for awhile before he “went west,” working in California, Oregon and Washington. He married Lucinda Hibbard, whose family had come from Wisconsin, in 1861. Like most other pioneer families, they worked — hard — all their lives. Henry worked as a freight hauler for the railroad builders in California. While he freighted, Lucinda cooked for the crew. The family moved to Arizona in 1876. Their seventh child, Preston LeRoy (Press) was born in the Tonto Basin in 1878. He was presumed to be the first white child born in the area. Lucinda was assisted in his birth by an Indian woman, Dominga,

the wife of famous Indian scout Archie McIntosh. In 1879, the family established their Jackshoe Ranch on the Salt River, about five miles above where Roosevelt Dam now stands. It became known as Armer Gulch. In 1884 Armer Gulch got a post office, and Lucinda served as post mistress until the place no longer existed. The government purchased land that would be underwater after the dam’s construction, including Armer Gulch. Wally’s grandfather, John, married Margaret Griffin in 1908. Wally’s father, Walt, was born in Globe in 1916. The patriach who started it all, Henry Armer, passed away in 1909 at age 85. Walt played football at the University of Arizona in addition to his academic pursuits, graduating in 1940. Virginia Little of Glendale, Arizona, where her father was postmaster, also attended UofA. She was working for the Arizona Livestock Sanitory Board when she and Walt were introduced. In January of 1941 Walt was called into active service for what he called his “ROTC, one-year active duty stint” which began at Fort Riley in the horse cavalry continued on page 68

and lasted through several years of World War II. While on leave in June of 1941 Walt and Virginia were married. Virginia returned to Globe and stayed with Walt’s mother, Margaret, until after the war. Wally was born in 1942 and his sister Cathy in 1948. Walt worked for the extension service as a range and livestock specialist in the state office until 1952, when the family moved to Nogales where Walt managed a large farm and rangeland operation. That ranch ran Santa Gertrudis cattle, and Walt later became the Arizona Santa Gertrudis Association’s first president. When the operation’s owner died and the property was sold the Walt Armer family moved to Tucson. That was 1957, and Walt began his ranch management and appraisal business, Walter D. Armer and Associates. Walt also found time to serve as Arizona Cattle Growers president in 1982 and 1983. He has passed away, but Wally still owns and operates the business. Through all the various “other” pursuits ranching has been the base for this

family. Each year during the Arizona National livestock show they try to have a ranching family compile a history of their operations. When the Armer family did theirs, Wally says, “We put together a map showing all the ranches that at one time or another, past and present, different Armer family members have had,” he says. “It surprised us how many of them there were over the state — I think it was 15 or 20.” Current Arizona Cattlemen’s Association president Tom Chilton says it’s all about friendship. “My dad and Wally’s dad were good friends, and their dads were good friends. Now Wally and I are good friends.” He adds, “My dad and Wally’s dad went to school in Gila County, my dad at Miami and Walter at Globe. They both were good athletes. They always played their football rivalry game on Thanksgiving, and they brought out the captain from each school for the coin toss. Their senior year my dad was the captain for Miami and Walter was the captain for Globe. It was great. They remained friends for life.” He adds, “I can’t say enough good about Wally and the Armer family and what they mean to the cattle industry and especially ■ to our family.”

China says no to greenhouse gas cuts after talks with US hina will not accept binding cuts in its greenhouse gas emissions, an official said after the United States said it made progress with Beijing in talks here on a global climate pact. The comments came after a visit by US climate change envoy Todd Stern aimed at pressing the Asian giant to commit to hard numbers on emissions reductions ahead of December talks in Copenhagen on a new global warming treaty. “China is still a developing country and the present task confronting China is to develop its economy and alleviate poverty, as well as raise the living standard of its people,” foreign ministry spokesman Qin Gang told reporters. “Given that, it is natural for China to have some increase in its emissions, so it is not possible for China in that context to accept a binding or compulsory target.” China and the United States are the world’s two largest emitters of greenhouse gases that cause global warming.

ment describing the meetings as “a step in the right direction on the road to Copenhagen and to charting a global path to a clean energy future.” “We deepened our dialogue with our Chinese counterparts through a candid discussion of the challenges we must overcome and the opportunities we must seize if we and the world are to reach an international climate agreement,” it said. During his four-day visit, Stern met key Chinese officials including Vice Premier Li Keqiang and climate negotiator Xie Zhenhua.

China has said the bulk of the responsibility for emissions cuts lies with developed nations. In an interview with the state Englishlanguage China Daily, Stern indicated he had backed down on insisting that China adopt a binding cap on emissions. “We don’t expect China to take a national cap at this stage,” the China Daily quoted Stern as saying. “We understand China’s paramount need to grow and develop for its people . . . our demand is that the development with the available technologies is based on low carbon growth.” As part of ongoing global negotiations to replace the Kyoto Protocol when it expires in 2012, China has said the bulk of the responsibility for emissions cuts lies with developed nations. It has pledged to play a constructive role in the negotiations in Copenhagen, while implementing domestic energy targets and developing alternative and clean energies. Such efforts have been “very impressive,” the paper quoted Stern as saying. The US negotiator added he believed that China was “willing to do more.” Officials at the US embassy in Beijing refused to immediately comment on Stern’s interview with the China Daily. Stern said in a recent speech in Washington: “China and other developing countries do not need to take the same actions that developed nations are taking. “But they do need to take significant national actions that they commit to internationally, that they quantify and that are ambitious enough to be broadly consistent with the lessons of science.” The US refused to ratify the Kyoto Protocol largely due to a lack of commitments by developing nations to cut emissions. ■

Removing the political shortage of water bout 82 percent of Americans receive drinking water via publiclyowned water systems, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Many of these municipal and regional systems operate at a loss, meaning users’ fees don’t cover the cost of treating and delivering the water. Many water authorities are critically behind on maintenance. They lack the capital to update their water purification and wastewater treatment plants, or to secure additional water supplies to meet expected growth in demand, say H. Sterling Burnett, a senior fellow, and Ross Wingo, a research assistant, both with the National Center for Policy Analysis. Abroad, studies have found operating and infrastructure improvements from privatization have improved water quality. For example, a study from the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella in Bueños Aires, Argentina, found that water privatization reduced child mortality by 8 percent. According to the Rio Grande Foundation, a New Mexico research institute, private systems are more efficient than government-run systems: ■ Operating expenses are 21 percent lower for privately run systems than comparable government-run water systems. ■ Maintenance costs for privately run water suppliers are on average half that of public water systems. ■ Private water companies require less than half as many employees as public water systems and spend one-third less of water sales revenue on employee salaries. Consumers benefit when private suppliers are allowed to manage water supplies, say Burnett and Wingo: ■ Water fees are slightly lower — an average of $14 less per household per year — in counties where water is provided solely by private companies, according to the AEI-Brookings study. ■ The AEI-Brookings study found ratepayers saved about 10 percent or $33 per year, on average, in counties served by a number of private companies. ■ The Rio Grande Foundation found even higher savings, an average of 25 percent, on water rates in areas where a number of private companies provide water and sewage treatment.

World Champion Auctioneer sought the title for 12 years here was just one championship title left for Ty Thompson to win in Livestock Marketing Association’s World Livestock Auctioneer Championship – that of world champion. And that’s the one he took home, following competition June 13 at the Fergus Falls Livestock Auction Market, Fergus Falls, MN. This was the Billings, Mont., auctioneer’s 12th time in the WLAC. He’s come close to winning the contest, taking the reserve championship twice, and the runner-up spot last year. Before this year, he’d also been one of the ten finalists seven times. The 2009 reserve world champion is Tom Frey, Creston, Iowa, and the runnerup world champion is Kyle J. Shobe, Lewistown, Mont. Asked about the 12 years he’s spent pursuing the world title, Thompson said, “I’m thankful it took this long, because I think it’ll make me a better champion.” His championship year will put him on the road for LMA, appearing at livestock markets and other events across the country — and Thompson said he’s “looking forward to it, because livestock marketing has been good to me and my family, and I want to give something back.” He was sponsored by Public Auction Yards, Billings Livestock Commission, Northern Livestock Video, all in Billings, and Winter Livestock, Inc./Riverton Livestock Auction, Riverton, Wyo. Reserve world champion Frey is also a veteran contestant, having been a finalist several times. His previous highest finish was runner-up world champion in 2007. At age 47, Frey is very aware of the many younger contestants vying for the title. As far as re-entering the contest, he said, “If my staying in the contest keeps the young guys interested in auctioneering and the contest, I’ll keep entering.” His sponsors were the market he owns and operates, Creston Livestock Auction, Inc., Creston, Iowa, and Unionville Livestock Market, Inc., Unionville, Mo. Runner-up world champion isn’t the only title Shobe won. He was also named the Audrey K. Banks “Rookie of the Year,” the highest-scoring first-time entrant to make the semi-finals. That earned him a $500 check from LMA. The award is named in honor of Banks, a long-time LMA employee who worked on the WLAC for over three

decades. Shobe, 26, said he felt “blown away” by his success as a first-time entrant. “I was surprised to make the finals, and I didn’t think I had a chance to make the top three,” he said. His sponsors were the Lewistown Livestock Auction, Lewistown, Mont. The remaining seven finalists, who emerged from a field of 33 contestants, were, in alphabetical order, Charly Cummings, Yates Center, Kan.; Justin Dodson, Welch, Okla.; Jim Hertzog, Greenwood, Mo.; Mike Nuss, Minatare, Neb.; Ted Odle, Brush, Colo.; Jason Santomaso, Sterling, Colo. and Kevin Schow, Paxton, Neb. From LMA, Thompson received a $5,000 check, the Champion’s sculpture, a hand-tooled Billy Cook roping saddle, a custom-made belt buckle, and for use his championship year, a new 2009 Chevrolet Silverado Quad Cab 4x4 Z-71 truck. He received the custom-designed world champion ring from the host market. From LMA’s reigning champion, Matt Lowery, he was presented a hand-tooled, custom leather briefcase. The Missouri Auction School presented him the Gold Microphone Award, and from the World Wide College of Auctioneering, the Golden Gavel Award. LMA awards the reserve champion and the runner-up champion $2,000 and $1,000 respectively, along with custommade belt buckles. The runner-up also gets a crystal gavel, and the reserve champ, a Waterford crystal decanter and matching glasses. The finalists receive custom belt buckles from LMA, and windbreakers from TenStar Technologies. The semifinalists are awarded barbecue tools from LMA, jackets and caps from the host market and portfolios from TenStar. The Championship is an actual sale. Six judges score the semi-finalists on vocal clarity and quality, talent at keeping the sale moving, bid-catching ability, and by answering the question, “Would I hire this auctioneer?” A portion of the contestant’s score is determined by a pre-contest interview, where they’re judged on several criteria, including clarity of expression/articulation, knowledge of, and the ability to act as a spokesman for, the livestock marketing sector. The 2010 WLAC will be June 19 at the Oklahoma National Stockyards, Inc., Oklahoma City, helping to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Stockyards. ■

Common Ground?

by Caren Cowan, Exec. Director, New Mexico Cattle Growers’ Assn.

s I often say, one of the most frustrating parts of my job is the continual efforts to find common ground with other groups who claim to want to work together when in reality they want to erase us from the landscape. It is a catch 22 that there is no way to win. If the New Mexico Cattle Growers’ Association (NMCGA) refuses to participate, the story is that we had a chance to better situations for our members, the land and/or wildlife and refused. If we do participate, the story is that we “were at the table” and thus in agreement with the outcome no matter how vehemently we opposed the process and/or outcome. One of the better examples of that arose out of the last Game Commission meeting. At the meeting I was approached by a representative of the New Mexico Wildlife Federation (NMWF) who claimed to want to work on the state trespass statute. NMCGA has worked for several years to address this statute because it does little to deter trespass and even allows poachers to keep the game they illegally take. Each time, no matter how hard we try to work on the issue, the NMWF chooses some backdoor path to kill the effort rather than sitting down like men and coming up with a bill that we both might be able to support. Admittedly, the NMWF got the bill only 24 hours before its hearing this last year — that way they could not introduce amendments without at least showing them to us as they have in the past. However, during that 24 hours, instead of working together, they choose to send out a call to action to kill the measure. The day after the Game Commission meeting where the NMWF rep asked me to meet with him over the summer to work on the issue, he put this out: NMWF June eNewsletter . . . Most important, the Game Commission decided to continue efforts to revise the system in which antelope hunting permits are distributed. Currently, only 30 percent of antelope hunting permits are allocated to the public drawing with nearly 70 percent going out as landowner subsidy permits [emphasis added]. Of that 30 percent in the public drawing, only 78 percent of per-

A

74

JULY 2009

mits are dedicated to New Mexico residents. The result is that less than onequarter of all antelope hunting opportunities in New Mexico are dedicated to resident hunters. In Arizona, Wyoming, Montana and other states, 90 percent of hunts are dedicated to residents in a public drawing. The State Game Commission cannot change the 78 percent quota, which is set by the Legislature, but establishing a more fair system of tag allocation for our publicly owned wildlife is critical. NMWF will take a closer look at the antelope and other hunting programs in the summer edition of the Outdoor Reporter, which comes out in July. The next Game Commission meeting is scheduled for Thursday, July 2, in Chama. Who is being subsidized here? How much are hunters paying to feed and water the wildlife they hunt? Who owns and cares for the land the wildlife thrives on? Aren’t landowners subsidizing hunters when they feed, water and provide habitat for the wildlife they hunt? Where is there any common ground? It is precisely this kind of rhetoric that makes it very difficult to work with the NMWF and their buddies on ANYTHING. And Another Thing . . .

t press time New Mexico Cattle Growers Association learned that Senator Jeff Bingaman is pursuing a feasibility study to turn the management of the Valles Caldera National Preserve (VCNP) over the National Park Service rather than the congressionally mandated and presidentially appointed board that was set in place when the federal government purchased the property. Not only did the federal purchase take the land off the local tax rolls, but the management structure seriously limited the ability to meet the mandate and utilize the property for the historic livestock grazing and a working ranch that helped keep the land as a magnificent ranch and landscape that is has been for generations. The NMWF and others have worked diligently to remove grazing from the Preserve while protecting their ability to utilize the property for their own recreational

A

and hunting purposes. And, tell me again . . . who is being subsidized here? While there probably aren’t enough livestock on the Preserve to make a difference to the cattle industry in the long run, the fact that a very small group of antigrazing, anti-free enterprises and antiproperty rights group can affect public policy in this manner is scary indeed. It is truly frightening that a very small but highly vocal group whose goal is to eliminate grazing, on federal lands at least, seem to have the ability to change the landscape and culture of New Mexico forever. It is well past time for real New Mexicans to stand up for their custom and culture. If you get an opportunity to see Senator Bingaman or any of the New Mexico Congressional Delegation in the weeks and months to come, please let them know you oppose this change in management for the Preserve. Watch your email and the website at www.nmagriculture.org for talking points and letters on this issue. Congress will be in recess over the 4th of July as well as during the month of August. ONRW

f all the acronyms we work with every day this is among the most misunderstood today. It means Outstanding National Resource Waters (ONRW) and it is the highest water quality rating under the federal Clean Water Act. There was a move in New Mexico to make a sweeping designation of over 5,000 miles of streams ONRWs which would have put numerous land uses in jeopardy. The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED or Department), the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, and the New Mexico Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department have backed off that grand designation and have, at press time, issued a new proposal that appears to affect only waters in Wilderness areas. That new proposal is being evaluated and comments must be filed by August 4, 2009. Please watch your email and the website for draft comments to submit.

t is well past time that other industries join forces with agriculture for self preservation. Way too much time is spent trying to protect the interests of agriculture and private property owners in the of face encroachment by other industries — who should be friends. We all need power to operate our homes and businesses but it sure would be nice if those utility workers would close the gates behind them and not tear up the roads or the pasture when there is a blessed rain. We appreciate that railroads do transport goods that we all need, but it sure would be nice if they would take responsibility for the livestock trains hit — and close the gates and not tear up the roads. These things are the simple stewardship of the land that ranchers practice every day. We ask that everyone take responsibility for the land that they tread on, just as we do.

On A Slightly Brighter Note . . .

t appears that there are least some people in this country who understand the importance of agriculture and the role it will play in the years to come. Maria Bartiromo interviewed Jim Rogers for a recent issue of Business Week. Rogers was George Soros’ partner when they started the Quantum Fund. Rogers retired and invented his famous commodity index. Here is a tidbit from the interview: On agriculture — “I really think agriculture is going to be the place to be. Agriculture’s been a horrible business for 30 years. For decades the money shufflers, the paper shufflers, have been the captains of the universe. That is changing. The people who produce real things will be on top. You’re going to see stockbrokers driving taxis. The smart ones will learn to drive tractors, because they’ll be working for the farmers. It’s going to be the 29-year-old farmers who have the Lamborghinis. So you should find yourself a nice farmer and hook up with him or her, because that’s where the money’s going to be in the next couple of decades.”

come to apply that name to those of us left in my family. It is expected that at some point the previous generation would leave us and that is as it should be, no matter how painful the goodbyes were. Daddy’s passing narrowed the Cowan family to a bunch of cousins, several of whom I share common bonds and interests with and thus we have become our own remnant tribe. The shock of losing one of my tribe so soon is unfathomable. Rick Snure lived life hard and fast and in the past few years gave his life fully to his passion for flying. He started a helicopter service to help his fellow ranchers gather livestock. With today’s labor shortage he was never at a loss for cattle to gather. His work ethic kept him in the air as long as there was daylight. His customers quickly learned they needed to break his flying time over several days because he could gather more cattle in two days than could be worked in a week. Rick didn’t approach anything in his life in a small way. He was an excellent cattleman and horseman, raising and training the horses that his sons rode to rodeo champions across the West. Rick’s proudest accomplishments were his sons, Dr. Roland, Bill and Clay. The joy of his life was grandson Olan. Although like most cowboys showing affection was not something that came easy, Rick loved his family and friends with a passion that few can match. When one of the tribe was ill a couple of years ago, he jumped in his helicopter and flew to Tucson to be with her in a matter of an hour, rather than the four that it would have taken on the dirt road and highway. While his action was commendable, it did get him in some hot water. The fastest way to get to Marguerite’s side was to land the helicopter in a friend’s yard. That friend’s neighbor didn’t share Rick’s love of family or helicopters and turned him in to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). My last conversation with Rick in early June was about another cousin in need. We both knew there was an issue, but I was preaching caution, giving the cousin space and me time to rearrange my schedule a bit. Rick was absolutely adamant that life was short and he was going ahead. I just didn’t realize how far ahead of me he would go. Rick’s crash was not flying low to turn back that last salty cow. He was quietly flying from one pasture to another. The continued on page 77

country was rough and there was a rural power line that ran from ridge top to ridge top. He didn’t see the wire strung across. The crash was hard, but not terribly destructive and I find some solace in knowing that Rick is at peace and in the folds of those who went before. The tribute that Rick’s friends and family paid him was telling of just how many people cared about him and were proud to call him their friend. More than 500 people came from as far as thousands of miles away to fill the Douglas High School Auditorium, creating the largest parking lot of diesel pickups most folks have ever seen. Family and neighbors celebrated Rick’s life with stories that made everyone laugh. Joe Delk’s lone fiddle allowed the needed tears to flow. The lobby and bar of the Gadsden Hotel hasn’t seen such activity since the Arizona State High School Rodeo finals were held in Douglas well back in the last century. Our tribe has a big hole and Rick’s brother, Billy Ben, is left to manage a herd of “sisters” as the tribe carries on in the face of whatever obstacles come before us ■ — just as we were raised to do.

he Obama Administration continues to fill positions important to Federal Land grazing operations. Some appointees have been closely associated with environmental groups while others have experience in natural resource issues at various levels of government. None of them have any livestock industry experience. Citing personal reasons, Homer Lee Wilkes has withdrawn his nomination for USDA Undersecretary for Natural Resources and the Environment. Mr. Wilkes is currently serving as NRCS State Conservationist in Mississippi. NRCS has a long tradition of working with farmers and ranchers in soil and water conservation on private land. He would have overseen the USDA Forest Service. Wilkes didn’t want to uproot his high school age children and move them to Washington, DC in their last two years of school. The only indication of a replacement is Chris Wood, Chief Operating Officer of Trout Unlimited who was said to be under consideration earlier. Wilkes had no experience with western natural resource issues and might have had a hard time managing the policies of the Forest Service. On the other hand, he might have been immune to the anti-grazing bias that is so pervasive in the ranks of the agency. The position was held by Mark Rey in the Bush administration. Rey was a lightning rod for criticism from environmentalists. Harris Sherman has been named to be Chief of the Forest Service. Sherman is the Director of the Colorado Department of Natural Resources. He has been criticized by some environmental groups for his role in developing Colorado’s version of the Roadless Rule for National Forests. He allowed some roads for access to oil and gas development and for timber operations that were conducted in conjunction with fuel reduction for fire prevention. He has said that since the Obama administration has returned to

T

the Clinton roadless plan he doesn’t think Colorado needs its own. Access provided by roads is essential for almost any commercial use of forest resources from oil and gas to timber to livestock and even recreation. Closure of roads is usually the first step to locking the public out of an area that will eventually be designated as a wilderness area, national monument or some other category that prevents its productive use. There is nothing in his background to suggest an understanding of livestock grazing. Sam Hamilton, the Southeastern director for the US Fish and Wildlife Service, has been selected to be the new national director. FWS enforces the Endangered Species Act and issues some of the most influential and controversial rulings. Bob Abbey has been named BLM Director. Abbey retired from the BLM in 2005 as the Nevada State Director. Abbey at least has dealt directly with BLM permittees but Nevada permittees have had their share of problems with the agency. Wolves continue to make news. Northern wolves are spreading into eastern Oregon with predictable increasing conflicts with livestock operations. As Idaho and Montana assume management for the wolf populations in their states, Wyoming officials continue to push for delisting on their terms which include some reasonable management of wolves to prevent devastation of the state’s livestock and wild game populations. Environmental groups are pursuing legal options to reverse the delisting again. In New Mexico and Arizona, the Mexican wolf program continues unchanged. The Wildearth Guardians have launched an effort to make the Gila region the next great National Park or Monument. Their vision is a healthy population of wolves surrounded by miles of wilderness. Unstated in their announcement is the goal of eliminating all rural residents and continued on page 79


any form of economic activity over a several thousand square mile area of the southwest. The revision to the Clean Water Restoration Act, S787, has been making its way through both houses of congress. It is now in the Senate in the Environment and Public Works Committee where Chairman Barbara Boxer is trying to ram it through without hearings. This bill would replace the “navigable waters” definition from the Clean Water Act and give the feds the authority to regulate every drop of water everywhere. Not only does it open up every puddle, stream or any other body of water to regulation, it also exposes anything a landowner might do to that puddle to the citizen-suit provisions of the Clean Water Act. Any environmental group could stop virtually anything that could be construed to affect water. If this bill can’t be held up in committee the last chance will be on the Senate floor. It has already passed the House and the President will sign it if it gets to his desk. It has been described as the biggest federal power grab in the nation’s history. Another devastating piece of legislation being debated in Congress now is the mas-

sive climate change bill. The American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 sponsored by Henry Waxman of California and Edward Markey of Massachusetts would devastate the US economy especially agriculture. This cap and trade legislation is the culmination of the global warming hysteria that has been ginned up by Al Gore and others. Although the bill is full of complicated schemes, its core is a huge tax on any form of energy. The purpose is to discourage energy use. The problem is almost everything we produce consumes energy in some way. Farm products are no exception. There are estimates that this legislation will reduce net farm income by over 50 percent over the next ten years. Although range livestock production is not a heavy energy user, most livestock consume at least some feed before they are marketed. As feed costs rise, livestock prices generally fall. A lot of energy is also used hauling livestock and livestock products around the country. This legislation or anything derived from it will be devastating to the economy generally and agriculture specifically. Some Democrats are reportedly withdrawing support but there will likely be

some form of climate change legislation passed eventually. Whatever is passed will have no effect on climate change and a huge negative effect on the economy. In another related federal action, the Environmental Protection Agency has issued an “endangerment finding” concerning carbon dioxide emissions. This means the EPA has declared CO² emissions to be a danger to us all and it’s their duty to develop regulations to protect us from them. We can expect regulations to deal with every aspect of energy use. Of course if any form of the climate change bill passes, there won’t be any need for such regulation because none of us will be able to afford to use energy anyway. The public seems to be finally waking up to the danger of government taking over everything. At some point the pendulum will have to start swinging back toward common sense. Who knows how long that will take? In the meantime we will have to fight the lunacy where we can and figure out how to survive it until sanity prevails. Forecasters still predict a turn toward wetter weather later on this summer. Let’s pray they are right. Until next time, may God bless us all. ■

jinglejangle resident’s Message: Happy Birthday to Our Nation! First of all we need to Thank Jesus Christ who died for our freedom and also the American Soldier who has died for our freedom. Often times on the Fourth of July we see the patriotic character Uncle Sam on posters or marching down a parade route. Uncle Sam is wrapped in a flag with a star spangled coat and striped pants. He was given a beard to honor President Abraham Lincoln. Uncle Sam took on his most famous image when he graced “I Want You” on military recruiting posters during World War I. However, Uncle Sam’s roots began in the Beef Packing business. The individual, Sam Wilson was born on September 13, 1766 in Arlington, Massachusetts. In 1789, Sam and his brother moved to Troy, NY to open a brick yard. Eventually the brothers went into the meat-packing business. During the war of 1812, Mr. Wilson was kind enough to try and help the troops fighting the British as best as he could by sending them crates of meat, which he stamped U.S. Presumably the U.S. stood for United States, but it is not entirely certain. Those soldiers familiar with Sam Wilson and his operation jokingly, claimed the U.S. stood for “Uncle Sam.” The image of Uncle Sam has been associated with American Patriotism. On this Fourth of July I encourage all of you to have an All American Hamburger or a slice of Brisket and salute our troops with thankfulness and prayer for safety. One of our locals, the Chamiza CowBelles, each year donates several hundred dollars to “Beef for our Troops.” I am very proud of this local in donating dollars for a great nutritious meal for our troops. In the summer months many locals do not have a regular meeting but award scholarships to youth in their area for the upcoming college year. They also work hard on their ranches and try to keep a garden going in the heat and wind. Previously in this article I mentioned having Brisket on the Fourth of July. The recipe this month comes from Karen Kelling. Curt and Karen are hosts throughout the summer to many groups of Norwegian motorcyclists. They prepare food in large quantities so prepare for a large feed with this recipe.

Barbeque Brisket

Rub for 10 (12# average) packer Trim Briskets 2 cups red chili powder 2 cups kosher salt 1 cup garlic powder 1 cup onion powder 1 cup coarse black pepper 1 cup brown sugar 2/3 cup ground mustard 2/3 cup Mexican oregano – crushed Two days before Barbeque Go to Texas and bring home oak and mesquite wood. Day before Barbeque 7:00 p.m.: Wash briskets. Smear with olive oil. Rub liberally with brisket rub. Wrap fat side down in doubled, heavy-duty foil. Place on foil cookie sheets for ease of handling. 9:00 p.m.: spread cookie sheets of foilwrapped, fat-side-down briskets on racks in BBQ cooker. Light fire in firebox with predominately oak wood. Bring cooker to approximately 250 degrees. Shut down 80

drafts on firebox and smokestack to about ¼ inch. Go to bed smelling like smoke. Day of Barbeque 6:00 a.m.: Check briskets with meat thermometer. Temperature should be approximately 160 to 170 degrees. Add enough mesquite wood to firebox to bring briskets gradually to 180 degrees. 9:00 a.m. or three hours before serving: unwrap and roll briskets out onto racks, fat side up, arranging those less cooked closer to the firebox. A flat, rigid cookie sheet is a good thing to move them around with. Add enough mesquite to smoke and maintain briskets at approximately 180 degrees. Serve! Take out of cooker and serve one at a time while outside crust is still bubbling. Slice brisket in two at the base of the thicker, fatter end. Slice thicker end lengthwise. Slice thinner end across. Serve each person a little (or a lot) of each. People will say, “This is really good. How do you do it?” Don’t tell them. They won’t believe you anyway.

Toni Barrow read thank you notes from Zia Thompson and Beck Baker for the graduation donations. It was decided that a cowgirl book would be given to Bay Baker in appreciation for the note cards she made and donated to the silent auction bucket for Chuckwagon. There was discussion about the EPA tax proposed on horses, cows, and pigs. The group pledged to each email and write to congressional representatives and senators. Toni reminded about the Mid-Year meeting in Ruidoso on June 28 through the 30. The next meeting will be at the First Baptist Church in Mountainair. Jerry Shaw will give a program on the history of the Mountainair area. Meeting adjourned at 12:30 p.m. Submitted by Babbi Baker The home of Dolores Ortega in the picturesque and historic town of Chiz was the location of the June Chamiza’s Cowbelles meeting. It was reported that a Chamiza Cowbelles Cookbook was sent to the silent auction at the Cattle Industry Summer Conference. A Thank you note was received from the WALC for donated mugs. Information on the re-publishing of more cookbooks was attained and reported on. More discussion was had in the placement of Chamiza Cowbelles in the state district location. Our present location is due to an attempt to equalize membership in the four districts. It is doubtful that any redistricting will occur in the near future. Discussion was had on placing Cowbelle items in more local retail outlets. A suggestion was made to place beef charts in all the cookbooks, which could be done during a monthly Cowbelle meeting. New business was introduced by Tommie Aber announcing that beef raffle tickets are now available. The goal for the scholarship rafcontinued on page 81


fle is again $4,000. This year’s scholarship winners are Dal Rae Chavez, Bailey Shivers, Shandee Smith, and Hannah Bradshaw. Each recipient will receive $1000 in scholarship funds. The next Chamiza Cowbelle meeting will be at the home of Ellie Nordgren in Hillsboro on July 2. Members are requested to bring a dish to pass. Submitted by Helen Langham The Copper CowBelles meeting of May 12, 2009 was called to order by President Kim Clark. Guests included Lindsay Latham, recent Agricultural graduate of NMSU and Lola Polley, Executive Director of the Silver City Grant County Chamber of Commerce. Ruth Wold, NMCB Secretary thanked group for the donation to the National Beef Ambassador Program. Kim quoted from Caren Cowan’s “Here’s the Moos” that “From Surviving to Thriving” was the theme of the 8th Women in Agriculture Leadership Conference held recently in Ruidoso. Over 90 women met to discuss current issues and to honor Grace Cain, Engle, N.M. and Michelle Heaveyside, Clovis, N.M. with the Conference’s “Diamond in the Rough” award. Grace, a retired schoolteacher, was the first woman in the state to teach Ag in the Classroom and is a founder and past pres-

ident of the Chamiza CowBelles. Michelle is Chairman of the Milk Lovers’ Ball, a fundraiser for three local children’s homes. She is founder and President of United Dairy Women. It was decided that Copper CowBelles would sponsor a local teacher to attend the Annual Workshop for Teachers for Ag in the Classroom. Kim presented a Call to Action from the NM Cattlegrowers concerning a legislative bill concerning water rights. Ranch Days in Alma at the McKeen Ranch was attended by several CowBelles, including Kim Clark, Pat Hunt, Kathy Davis, Lori Reed, Sally Raphael, Judy DePedro, Pattie Biefeldt and Mary Jo Hooker. Sally gave a report on the success of the two-day event for local middle school children and the 19 stations of information concerning agriculture for them to visit. The Silver High FFA presented group with an engraved plaque of appreciation for continuous support of their programs. Revised guidelines for the scholarship committee were accepted. Kathy Davis reported on the sign progress. The Cliff “Welcome to Beef County” sign has been postponed. The Deming sign will be finished early this summer. She announced that Big Bear (Steve and Pat Bearup) have

generously agreed to provide the crane needed to install the signs. Under New Business, it was decided to send a door prize/donation for the national summer conference and ANCW silent auction of $50 value. Pat discussed Cowboy Days to be held at Gough Park on July 25. She will be contacting members for volunteers to cover the booth to be shared with the Grant County CattleGrowers at the park. Shirley Sova is painting the scholarship bucket and will have it ready by the 25th. Items are needed to fill it! Guest Lola Polley turned in a membership application before the end of the meeting. Welcome! Guest Lindsay Latham who graduated NMSU with a degree in Agricultural Community Development gave a presentation about the new trend for community gardening. The NRCS website will help you determine what type of soil you have and what you need to prepare the soil for optimum plant growth. Lindsay hopes to develop a career helping communities develop gardens, providing nutritious food and helping people understand the benefits of growing their own food and using local farmers markets.

2009. The cost to CowBelle members is $25/brand. Sign-up sheets will be mailed to all other Lincoln Co. ranchers around the end of June. The Ag Week program at the school received positive feedback and efforts were recognized in the Ruidoso Newspaper. The change from a one-day to a four-day program worked much better for the teachers. It was reported that the group has only received $1,380 in donations for Ag Week compared to a total of $3,170 in 2008. Members were encouraged to approach those who have given in the past. A letter was read from Chairman of the New Mexico Bred and Raised Steer Show, Matalina Smith from Logan, N.M. Smith is asking organizations in New Mexico who have an interest in the beef program to donate. It was noted that Lincoln County youth does participate in this program, which is similar to our Cream of the Crop program for those that raise and show their own animals. It was decided to give a $250 donation to the New Mexico Bred and Raised Steer Show. As the State Secretary Ruth shared that she is responsible for working multiple days at the State Fair Booth and needs some help. Discussion of a meeting time change to encourage more participation among membership as well as to recruit new members who usually work during the day was had. Those present felt it should be pursued. Kimberly committed to report back at the next meeting the results. Ruth informed all present that the next meeting will be held at the Wortley Hotel in Lincoln on June 10, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. From the April meeting: The Annual Picnic will be held July 19 in Ruidoso at Cedar Creek picnic area, potluck.

EPA: Reckless endangerment n mid-April the EPA decided to play capand-trade roulette with the U.S. economy by ruling that carbon dioxide is a dangerous pollutant that threatens the public and therefore must be regulated under the 1970 Clean Air Act. This socalled “endangerment finding” sets the clock ticking on a vast array of taxes and

I

regulation that EPA will have the power to impose across the economy, and all with little or no political debate. This is a momentous decision that has the potential to affect the daily life of every American, says the Wall Street Journal. Peter Glaser, an environmental lawyer at Troutman Sanders, told Congress in

2008, “The country will experience years, if not decades, of regulatory agony, as EPA will be required to undertake numerous, controversial, time-consuming, expensive and difficult regulatory proceedings, all of which ultimately will be litigated.” The EPA has now opened this Pandora’s box: ■ The centerpiece of the Clean Air Act is something called the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) under which the EPA decides the appropriate atmospheric concentration of a given air pollutant. ■ Under this law the states must adopt measures to meet a NAAQS goal, and the costs cannot be considered. ■ For global warming, this is going to be a hugely expensive futility parade. Greenhouse gases mix in the atmosphere, and it doesn’t matter where they come from. A ton of emissions from Ohio has the same effect on global CO² as a ton emitted in China; and even if Ohio figured out a way to reduce its emissions to zero, it would still have no control over the carbon content in its ambient air. But under the law, EPA would be required to severely punish Ohio — and every state — for not complying with NAAQS, says the Journal. Under the Clean Air Act, the EPA also must regulate all “major” sources of emissions that emit more than 250 tons of an air pollutant in a year. That includes “any building, structure, facility or installation.” This might be a reasonable threshold for conventional pollutants such as sulfur oxide (SOX) or nitrogen oxide (NOX), but it’s extremely low for carbon. Hundreds of thousands of currently unregulated sources will suddenly be subject to the EPA’s preconstruction permitting and review, including schools, hospitals, malls, restaurants, farms and colleges. According to EPA, the average permit today takes 866 hours for a source to prepare, and 301 hours for EPA to process. So this regulatory burden will increase by several orders of magnitude, says the Journal.

USDA programs to benefit sheep producers ew Mexico sheep producers can now start to participate in two USDA programs approved in the 2008 Farm Bill to help benefit the industry, according to Joan Kincaid, New Mexico Wool Growers, Inc. (NMWGI) President, Piñon. U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack announced on April 7th that regulations governing Marketing Assistance Loans (MAL) and Loan Deficiency Payments (LDP) are now in place. Although the programs were approved last fall, publication of the regulations was needed for the programs to move forward. “We are pleased that the USDA has continued to work on getting the critical assistance in these programs to producers,” Kincaid said. “Shearing season in New Mexico is finishing up, and with this announcement, producers will be able to get LDP assistance for the 2009 wool clip.” Beginning in mid-April, producers also will see more flexibility in loan repayment rates. Once a week, the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) will determine and publish loan repayment rates based on average market prices during the previous 30 days, as well as announce an alternative repayment rate. The effective repayment rate will be the lower of the two. “Considering today’s fluctuating markets, this added flexibility will be a big benefit to sheep producers,” Kincaid said. Sheep production has a long history in New Mexico, and while sheep numbers have declined in recent years, the industry remains strong. Several factors have contributed to that decline, including predators, market conditions and drought. “Sheep people are a hardy bunch, predators and the losses they cause our biggest issues,” Kincaid explained. “It is hard to stay in business when your profits are literally being eaten up by predators you can’t control.” Sheep in New Mexico number 130,000, with about 800 active sheep ranches in the state. Of the 6.1 million sheep in the nation, New Mexico produces about 130,000, ranking it 13th in sheep production, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service. For more information, sheep producers should contact their county Farm Services Agency office, or visit ■ http://www.fsa.usda.gov.

The Border and a Modern Cowboy by STEPHEN L. WILMETH he heat was building as the little Robinson flashed and then disappeared again behind the low ridge. Occasionally dust would appear and the pop, pop, pop of the rotors cutting the air in the turns could be heard over the two miles of space between the mounted cowboys and the working helicopter. The big end of the first calf heifers in this 120 section “trap” would soon appear and the mounted cowboys would trot in behind them and take them on to the corrals. Another day in the lives of Hurt Cattle Company cowboys was at hand. A blend of old and new was fully in play. Two way radios, helicopter, cow dust and saddle leather all played a role in this drama. Other than the high tech components, the sights and sounds of bawling cattle were no different from a century earlier in this far corner of New Mexico. The ramparts of Big Hatchet and Big Animas Mountains flanking the Playas Valley were the same dark blue that any old time cowboy could remember. As the cattle were penned and the cowboys dismounted, the helicopter landed nearby. Dust covered everything and everybody. Without knowing, the crew was debriefing itself like a military operation following a mission. Had the bunch of heifers on the lake bottom been picked up? Was there any likelihood that cattle were left in the heavy brush at the Thompson or the Whitmire? Looking closer an outsider would have been struck by the banter and the

T

accents. Spanish and English were used interchangeably. These modern-day cowboys were not different from their counterparts of years ago. Spurs jingled, horses stood hocked up on three legs in the shade, and the heat of the Southwest influenced the dress and the style of the hats. From the cockpit of the helicopter the pilot traded his helmet for a wide brimmed palm leaf and stepped out. Richard Hays, Hank as his friends know him, is a native New Mexican. To those who know him he looks more like his maternal grandfather than he would admit. He is a true son of the American West and a descendent of pioneering families. His mother’s family settled in the first half of the last century in Catron and Grant County (ies) New Mexico. His father, a “greatest generation” war veteran, a gifted cowboy poet before they became recognized, a saddle maker, a well driller, a roper, and a superb cowboy came from a ranching family in Kansas that had ties to settlement that dated to the Civil War era. Hank is retired from the United States Border Patrol. His duties were numerous, but his defining duty was as Chief, Flight Operations, United States Border Patrol. Following his retirement from the Border Patrol he settled in Deming, New Mexico and returned to his love of flying in an interesting way. He is employed by the Hurt family where he works cattle in a helicopter in the rugged expanse of New Mexico’s Boot Heel where he had worked as a rookie Border Patrol agent in early 1970.

This is an area of the United States that in many ways has been left in time and space. It was added as part of the Gadsden Treaty that, in 1854, secured by the United States as a southern railroad route to the Pacific Coast. It is remote, it is sparsely populated, and the natural surroundings are spectacular. It has also become one of the most active and dangerous corridors of illegal human and drug smuggling along the Mexican border. In his duties, Mr. Hays flies constantly in this remote corner of southwestern New Mexico. He sees issues of illegal immigration through the eyes of a veteran Border Patrol professional, but through the prism of a modern cowboy. His views are interesting, they are esoteric, and they are insightful. He worries about America’s future. “Every time we work cattle I find evidence of dope running,” he says. “If and when we find a load there will be a spotter somewhere in the vicinity. He will be in a position to guide whoever is supposed to pick up the load into the area. He will be equipped with either a cell phone or a radio and he will call the shots on the pickup.” The spotter serves as liaison between the “mule” who has packed the load from the border to the pickup point and the individual who will move the load to the next point. He is the communication link and security agent for the transfer. If there is danger of being detected he communicates that information. His job is to get the load through and into the distribution system. He has little patience for any excuses from a lowly “mule”. “We are seeing a lessening of human smuggling, and, if anything, an increase in running dope,” Mr. Hays continues. “This could be a combination of the economic situation in the United States and the further development of soft entry access in the Boot Heel.” What this observation suggests, however, is that with all the intensified border efforts illicit drugs are still being brought in at an accelerating rate in the Boot Heel corridor. Violence is not just a newspaper article subject, either. “On a game camera photo, we have a picture of a Mexican national carrying an AR-15,” he continued matter-of-factly. Evidence indicates that the Sinaloa (drug) Cartel is operating on the north side of the border and attempting to wrestle business and product away from the northern Chihuahuan and the Sonoran cartels. continued on page 87

Everyone in the area is amazed that more armed confrontations haven’t occurred. “The dope rings are still very leery of American law enforcement, but it is only a matter of time before something erupts that will lessen that respect. When it does, it has the potential of escalating into something none of us can imagine. This is a very serious deal down here.” It is also something that Americans had better take seriously. Politics and administration policies are something that can become life threatening to the people who make their lives in this border area. For example, efforts to designate wilderness on federal lands

...efforts to designate wilderness on federal lands along the border by several border congressional representatives is a serious and consequential matter. As described in the organic act, wilderness is a place that roads and motorized access are not allowed. along the border by several border congressional representatives is a serious and consequential matter. As described in the organic act, wilderness is a place that roads and motorized access are not allowed. Regardless of proposed steps to mitigate access concerns by the Border Patrol, wilderness will limit full interdiction efforts. Confining and limiting such activities in any way is not only dereliction of Congressional responsibility it is an affront to the American people. It must not be allowed to happen. The Border Patrol needs full and unencumbered authority to do whatever is necessary to protect the American border and not be sidelined or confounded by a political agenda. “Our congressmen need to come work some cows with me and see what is taking place,” Hank says and then smiles and contemplates what he just said. “There might be a different perspective on this whole border deal.” The fact is that, if America could come and hear the views of border ranchers, there might be a whole different perspective on a lot of things.

Ash Creek Ranch Gary & Sharla Mortimer www.ashcreekranches.com The sun rises bright each morning on Ash Creek Ranch in Central Arizona. There have been many changes since two families homesteaded this beautiful valley in 1880. They chose it for the fertile farm land, plentiful forage, mild climate and available water. The Mortimer family also chose this land where they could raise their children and continue the legacy of good stewardship of the land. This high desert ranch is comprised of both public and private land, sustaining many native grasses, junipers, cacti, and mesquite. Gary and Sharla Mortimer utilize a rest rotation schedule using each pasture once every eighteen months. Explains Gary, “This system makes it possible to use alternating summer and winter forage in each pasture. We also continually develop and improve the available water for livestock and wildlife across the ranch.” The Mortimers raise Registered Black Angus and Commercial Angus Cross cattle. Through artificial insemination (AI) they’ve built their herd utilizing the best genetics available to provide premium quality and yield. They AI all their heifers and cows every year using a Breeding Synchronization Protocol. Artificial insemination allows Ash Creek Ranch to select bulls for the very best genetics for their operation and shorten their calving season. Additionally, the AI protocol ensures more calving cows and fewer bulls providing more money to the operation’s bottom line. Plus, AI is also ensuring the operation can purchase higher quality bulls. Finally, with a focused AI protocol Ash Creek Ranch can market more uniform and quality calves. “With our AI protocol, our goal is to calve our heifers unassisted in 30 days and our cows in 90 days,” explains Gary. Nutrition Becomes the Other important Focus for Ash Creek. No matter how great a breeding program is, you can’t have a top-performing cattle operation without good nutrition. “Of course, as with all ranches the most important factor of our success is nutrition,” say the Mortimers. Their cow herd is raised on range conditions. They move their cows into a fresh pasture during the third trimester prior to calving. They have also developed a low cost Range Pro Protein & Mineral Supplement. This supplement provides loose minerals, vitamins, protein, and salt needed by cows. The formula is everything a cow needs in addition to range grass and clean fresh water. Fed in portable ground feeders on the range, the mineral supplement also makes poor quality forage more digestible to the cattle. The feeders become a tool for grazing management because they place the feeders in locations where the cattle don’t normally graze. As a result, the cattle graze underutilized areas. Additionally, they use irrigated pastures for heifer and bull development. Ash Creek Ranch Spotlights Premium Quality Genetics Ash Creek Ranch sells their premium quality genetics as replacement females, and bulls through direct treaty. They also sell feeder calves to feed lots looking for quality genetics, age and source verification. Gary is a Certified ABS Beef Representative. Dedicated to helping other ranchers use the available technology to improve their own herds, Gary is available to help other ranches implement an AI program including developing turnkey breeding program, custom breeding, semen sales, USDA source and age verification, and marketing at premiums. Say Gary, “We believe these premium services will add dollars to your bottom line – especially in this tight market with increased feed costs.” Gary also teaches Artificial Insemination and Palpation courses with live practice at Ash Creek Ranch.

The Mortimer Family The Future of Ash Creek Ranch The Mortimers will continue to do what they do best: Raise premium beef through solid genetics and healthy nutrition. They’ve additionally developed a market for consumers who like Angus beef raised in a natural environment. This direct-market beef niche has become another opportunity for them to showcase the importance of good breeding and good livestock nutrition. “We believe Ash Creek Ranch can continue to stay on the leading-edge of beef production by continually improving our AI protocols, always evaluating our nutrition strategy and discovering new management opportunities with our beef operations,” says Gary. “We also believe in coming alongside our peers in the industry and making sure we’re producing the best American beef around.” “Plus, it’s our goal to protect the land and the wildlife and steward the land as effectively as the first families did,” adds Sharla. “They are our inspiration and have passed on a legacy.” This Central Arizona Ranch is proving quality genetics, high percentage calf crops, and short calving season are all possible in the rugged high desert of Arizona.

JARITAS RANCH Colfax, Harding and Mora Counties, New Mexico 18,232 Deeded Acres—More or Less • 28,005 Acres – NM State Lease 46,237 Total Acres—More or Less This extremely well improved and productive ranch is located east of Springer, New Mexico, in the heart of Northeastern New Mexico’s most productive cattle country. The Jaritas has a historical carrying capacity of approximately 1,250 animal units. The terrain is diverse, ranging from open rolling upland prairies, to several major drainage areas and low lying valleys that descend into rough escarpments along the Canadian River bottom. The upland prairies have an open appearance, with juniper, piñon, oak, and scattered ponderosa pine being common throughout the canyon areas. The Jaritas Ranch may truly be the best watered ranch in the state. The Canadian River always has a substantial flow, and live spring water is also found in several tributary creeks. There are numerous dependable earthen ponds on the ranch, and several are unusually large. Last year, the owners completed an extensive waterline expansion project. In addition to existing waterlines, they installed approximately 46 miles of new waterlines and 41 new fiberglass drinking troughs. Cattle now have access to water within a distance of 1 mile throughout nearly the entire ranch. The headquarter improvements are located in a compound area, and are very extensive. Most of these improvements were built in the late 1800’s. Barring no expense, these improvements have been tastefully restored and the entire headquarters complex can now be said to be some of the most impressive structural improvements on any ranch in the area. The focus of the Jaritas Ranch has always been cattle ranching, but the property offers great recreational features, such as elk, mule deer, antelope, bear, lion, turkey and migratory birds. The property is realistically priced at $650 per deeded acre with the New Mexico State Lease assigned to the purchaser. This desirable lease is only approximately $1.17 per acre. Giving consideration to the lease, the blended price is only approximately $256 per acre. You will look long and hard before you will find a ranch equivalent to the Jaritas.

Let’s face it, hand-feeding, means more costly visits to the pump. That’s why cattlemen choose Purina Accuration feed with Intake Modifying Technology® to maximize their feed efficiency – saving an average of $27/head on total feed cost. So you spend less on fuel. And Labor. And equipment. And land resources. Which means you can put your money where it counts, giving your herd that uniform, muscular look that boosts net return for your operation. How much could you save? Contact your Purina dealer for a free feed cost analysis at 1-800-227-8941. *See actual field comparisons at cattlenutrition.com
