Raising Ranchers Program

  • Have you managed an agriculture enterprise for fewer than 10 years?
  • Do you need land to lease for your enterprise?
  • Do you need access to quality animal handling facilities?
  • Do you need advice on bookkeeping or management practices?

If you answered YES, the Raising Ranchers program is for you. In collaboration with NM State University, Cattlegrowers Foundation, Inc. has established a new program to help expand, manage, and keep records for agriculture enterprises in their first 10 years of business.

Join the Raising Ranchers program and you will receive relevant information and resources from NM Cattle Growers' Association and NMSU Extension Specialists. Enrollment is not required to participate in the Raising Ranchers Webinar Series.
