NMSU Hosts Ranch Management Series in Northeastern New Mexico Communities
"The bottom-line is the drought is taking a toll on the country, the cattle, and the people. The inventory of cattle in northeastern New Mexico is greatly reduced and the remaining cattle left or being brought into the country are likely drought-stressed and thinner than usual," said Manny Encinias, NMSU Extension Beef Cattle Specialist.
As New Mexico beef producers continue to manage through one of the state's most severe droughts, New Mexico State University's Cooperative Extension Service is offering a free Ranch Management Series across northeastern New Mexico. The series is focused on managing cattle and the ranch through these challenging times. Sessions are designed to be driven by questions from program attendees into a discussion with experts and fellow ranch managers on timely management topics.
Sessions are offered at various northeastern counties, with the series running through March, 2013. All programs begin at 4:30 pm with supper provided at each location.
Registration is not required, but is appreciated to assist with meal planning. RSVP online or contact the Extension Office hosting the event.

Northeastern Ranch Management Series is hosted by the Cooperative Extension Service in Colfax, Guadalupe, Harding, Quay, San Miguel, and Union counties.
