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.

“Teacher of the Year” Nominations Due

The Nevada Cattlemen’s Association has started their thirteenth annual quest for “Teacher of the Year” candidates. We are asking for your help in soliciting nominations from school principals and fellow teachers. Nominees may include teachers considered in previous years but who were not selected for the award. The deadline for submitting nominations is October 16, 2015.

The winner of this award will receive a $1000 school supply stipend, donated by Nevada Agriculture Foundation. The award recipient will also be recognized during the Nevada Cattlemen’s Association’s annual awards banquet on November 14th in Winnemucca, Nevada.

The nominations must be an elementary, junior high, or high school teacher, who incorporates agriculture into their regular curriculum. For example, a teacher who teaches a one week segment on agriculture and its importance to Nevada.

Anyone may submit a nomination form which is available here or by sending a request by email, or by calling (775) 738-9214.

Nominations may be submitted by email with “2015 Teacher of the Year Nomination” in the subject line; forms may be faxed to 775-738-5208; or sent by mail to, “Teacher of the Year Nomination”, C/O Nevada Cattlemen’s Association, P.O. Box 310, Elko, NV 89803.

Nevada Cattlemen’s Association believes that the future of our industry lies in the education of the generations to come, as we explore new and innovative methods of sustainability. Please help us in our efforts to recognize and support our teachers and their vital efforts in educating our youth.

Thank you in advance for nominating a deserving teacher.
