One Howl of a Need!

Recent federal court decisions have created a need to fund additional wolf litigation if Arizona and New Mexico ranchers and their families plan to stay on the ground. The precedents set by the Tucson Federal District Court 10J Rule case will have far reaching impacts on all endangered species.

To head that off, we will likely need to appeal the recent Tucson decision… But there is good news!

Your dollars will go farther than EVER before! We have had tow generous donors, CKP Drought Insurance and Alisa Ogden have pledged to match every dollar donated!

New Mexico Wool Growers, Inc. & New Mexico Federal Lands Council Annual Meeting

The 2018 New Mexico Cattle Growers’ Association / New Mexico CowBelles / New Mexico Association of Conservation Districts Mid Year Meeting; New Mexico State University Short Course and the New Mexico Wool Growers, Inc. Annual Meeting are just around the corner. This largest mid-year gathering of New Mexico agriculture is scheduled for June 10 through 12 at the Ruidoso Convention Center in Ruidoso, New Mexico.   

Already it has been a busy year, but we hope that you can take some time out of your busy schedule to come and join us in some of the events we have to offer; bring the whole family!  We are happy to have New Mexico Association of Conservation Districts join us this year.  New Mexico CowBelles have new activities planned to help promote beef as well as our  Policy and Issues Sessions, Ladies Luncheon and NMSU Short Course, so there is bound to be something for everyone to enjoy.  As always, there will be a good mix of fun and learning to make this event worth your time. 

We will highlight the the 2018 Legislative Session, bills that passed and those that were vetoed, along with legislative issues that continue to be a concern and attack our lands and way of life.  The 2018 Elections are MORE IMPORTANT than ever!!!  It is never too early to start discussing who WE want to represent us both in the Roundhouse and on Capitol Hill.  New Mexico agriculture has strived to not only preserve our way of life but to enhance our livelihoods in providing food and fiber for all Americans.  NMCGA and NMWGI are proud of our members for all they do both on and off the ranch to achieve this goal. 

As you can see, we need your input to develop policy to fight these issues!  Throw all that in with the Bud Eppers & Les Davis Memorial Golf Tournament, where we cowboys get out our golf sticks at least once a year, along with good food, fun and fellowship, and a good time should be had by all!  Please make your reservations and registrations TODAY!  Click Here to Register Online.

New Junior Ranger Activity Book

New Junior Ranger Activity Book Encourages Kids to Go Fish

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Interior along with the National Park Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will publish a new free booklet to help kids get hooked on fishing. Starting June 2, aspiring anglers can download the Junior Ranger “Let’s Go Fishing!” activity booklet, which will introduce them and their families to fishing and encourage healthy and responsible outdoor recreation.

“The Junior Ranger fishing booklet is a great tool to inspire future anglers to get out on the waters and enjoy the American pastime of fishing,” said U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke. “Fishing in the rivers and lakes of Montana as a kid instilled in me a lifelong love of the sport.”

In the coming weeks, kids can pick up a print version of the booklet, funded in part by the National Park Foundation, at more than 500 national parks, national wildlife refuges, and national fish hatcheries that offer fishing. Upon completion of the booklet, kids will be sworn in as Junior Ranger Anglers and receive a National Park Service or U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service junior ranger badge.

“This booklet offers great opportunities to get kids and families outdoors, where they can make memories and enjoy the benefits of outdoor recreation together,” said National Park Service Deputy Director Dan Smith. “The activities encourage safe and enjoyable fishing experiences and promote the conservation of native fish and their habitats.”

“Teaching a child to fish gives him or her an outdoor skill that can bring a lifetime of pleasure,” said Cynthia Martinez, chief of the National Wildlife Refuge System, part of the Fish and Wildlife Service. “There are hundreds of national wildlife refuges and other public lands across the country — in both urban and rural communities — which are great places to fish, and this booklet will tell you all you need to enjoy them.”

“Discover the fun of sharing a fishing adventure with your friends and family,” said National Park Foundation President Will Shafroth. “Thanks to the support of generous National Park Foundation donors, this new book inspires people of all ages to get out and fish.”

For more information about the Junior Ranger “Let’s Go Fishing!” program or to download a copy of the booklet, visit www.nps.gov/subjects/fishing/. Visit fws.gov/refuges/kids/jrrangers for a list of the national wildlife refuges and national fish hatcheries participating in the program.

The Junior Ranger Angler program is one of more than 300 Junior Ranger programs in the Department of the Interior. Each is an intergenerational learning program that focuses on a site or theme tied to public lands. These activity books encourage young explorers to protect public lands, learn about the outdoors, and share their experiences with friends and family.
