The Valles Caldera Trust has chosen a diversified breeding stock program this year for its summer grazing season on the national preserve.
“It creates an enterprise that can dramatically improve the production of livestock for higher elevation ranching, promote economic development in the region and allows the Preserve to further enhance the self-sustaining, environmental and cultural goals set by the Valles Caldera Preservation Act,” said the Trust’s Executive Director Gary Bratcher in an announcement Tuesday.
From the five proposals submitted, Bratcher selected a bid by New Mexico State University, Jemez Pueblo and The New Mexico Beef Cattle Performance Association (NMBCPA).
The announcement noted that NMSU’s Cooperative Extension Service and Agricultural Experiment Station in Tucumcari, N.M. has managed and housed a seedstock performance testing facility in cooperation with the NMBCPA for 48 years.
Jemez Pueblo and NMSU have both been previous participants in the grazing program and have had an ongoing relationship over the years.
The grazing plan calls for providing cow-calf pairs, virgin bulls and replacement heifers in the 2009 program.
