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.
