New Mexico Agriculture Official to Meet with Farmers, Ranchers

January 6, 2016 06:25 AM

The state's top agriculture official will be talking to dairy farmers and beef cattle ranchers in southeastern New Mexico impacted by last month's record snowstorm.

New Mexico Secretary of Agriculture Jeff Witte will join officials from the state's Farm Service Agency at two informational meetings organized by the Dairy Producers of New Mexico.

The purpose of the meetings is to discuss disaster programs with dairy farmers, ranchers and other affected agricultural producers.

One meeting is scheduled Wednesday in Roswell at the Chaves County Extension Office with the other Thursday in Clovis at the city's Civic Center.

Witte and other leaders within New Mexico's agricultural community are urging those who had livestock or other agricultural losses in the storm to contact their county FSA office.
