The Nevada Cattlemen’s Association Welcomes You


Held February 18, 2017 - A Great Success:

Even with cold temperatures and winter weather across much of the west, it did not keep cattlemen from attending the 51st Annual Fallon All Breeds Bull Sale held at the Fallon Livestock Exchange. This year’s sale featured bulls ranging from 14-25 months of age. Cattlemen from California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, and Utah attended the sale looking to buy their range-ready bulls for the year. The Sale Average for the top 75 bulls sold comes to $3,696.67. Breed Averages included: Angus for $3,681.45; Balancer for $3,150; Charolais for $3,408.33; Herefords for $3,246.15; and Red Angus for $3,500.

NCA Comments on Sage Grouse “Not Warranted” Listing

The Nevada Cattlemen's Association (NCA) supports the United States Fish and Wildlife Services (USFWS) recent designation of the Greater Sage Grouse (GRSG) as "not warranted" under the endangered species act of 1973. NCA feels this was the correct designation for the benefit of the Greater Sage Grouse, rural communities and the environment. The designation will hopefully result in the continued trend of positive habitat restoration on more than 17 million acres of habitat in Nevada. The recovery rate of species listed as endangered by USFWS under the ESA to date is poor, to say the least, with less than 1% actually recovering.
