|New Mexico Wool Growers Association Inc., Caren Cowan, Executive Director
(December 1, 2009) The New Mexico Wool Growers Association Inc. is the oldest livestock trade organization in New Mexico, in existence for close to 110 years. It provides the communication, lobbying and regulatory affairs arm for the industry, working on federal lands issues, predator issues and marketing issues, to name its major focuses. Because the land in New Mexico is 60-percent owned by some government entity, both state and federal, most ranches are commingled between private, federal and state government land. This can make it difficult to deal with issues like predator management, because it’s like a patchwork quilt of land ownership.
