With the moneys generated from the salute to rancher night and cattle sale we have been able to replace our outdated speaker system and able to purchase a new computer system for our annual cattle sale. We have also been able to finance business trips to conventions and important meetings.
As I attended the winter and summer Arizona Cattle Growers Conventions I noticed that Gila County has one of the largest contingents there. This shows how involved our members are. Therese Hicks, David Cook and I attended the Public Land Council legislative conference in Washington DC in April to keep our association in the forefront of public land issues. We had 4 special meeting over this year with the Forest Service Supervisor and personnel that were very productive dealing with issue on the Tonto Forest Allotments.
You have been a great group to work with and Gila County Cattle Growers still ranks as one of the top associations in the state. We have several people that represent us at the state level working on committees to improve public land, ranching, wolf legislation and environmental issues.
As I write this I am recuperating from a bad wreck with a bull. I broken or cracked 20 bones in my neck, back and rib, but by the Grace of God and prayers and well wishes from many friends I will not have any permanent issues to deal with. I hope to be able to attend the steak fry. That is my goal! Either way I thank you for letting me serve you as a president of GCCGA. It's been a great ride and I have utmost confidence with the new officers. See you down the road.
