After reaching your trophy and appreciating the sweeping arc and mass of the main-beam, length of brow tines or the color and sheen of the hide, it is time to shift focus to proper handling of your kill to preserve the memories and meat of the hunt.
How you handle your game animal after harvest has a dramatic effect on the safety and quality of wild fare you offer to those that come to the dinner table. Meat quality refers to characteristics associated with appearance, flavor and tenderness. Proper handling reduces the risk of disease transmission while fighting ever present and destructive bacteria that can ruin meat quality and render it unsafe to eat.
Meat may be damaged or ruined if not field dressed, cooled and transported properly. Processing and handling game animals with attention to hygiene and carcass management ensures the best results when your wild fare reaches the dinner table. As soon as possible, field dress the carcass by removing the entrails. It is recommended to field dress the carcass within one-hour after death; sooner is better. Take care not to knick the stomach or intestines while removing the entrails. Once field dressed, get the carcass off the ground.
Prop the chest cavity open with sticks and wipe it out with a dry cloth to remove blood, debris and moisture. Elevating the carcass assists in keeping the carcass clean and aids in cooling. By quickly eviscerating and elevating the carcass, with attention to keeping it clean, you have a great beginning to maintaining meat quality characteristics.
Assessing the carcass for signs of disease or serious injury not associated with your bullet or arrow should be standard in your. Field dressing should begin with an inspection of the animal you just killed. Run your hands over the body and note if the hair rubs off easily. Look for festering or old wounds or creamy or greenish discharge from orifices.
Is there a noticeable putrid smell to the carcass? Observe the muscle tissue throughout the field dressing and carcass handling process. Are blood clots or parasites noticeable in the muscle tissue? Is pus running from any organs? All of these may be signs of disease or serious injury that may bring into question the quality of the meat and its safe consumption. If you observe any of these signs and you or a member of your hunting party are not able to account for what has been observed, contact a NMDGF Game Warden as soon as possible so they may assist you in assessing carcass quality.
You should contact the Game Warden within hours as carcass quality may deteriorate quickly and waiting even a day, depending on weather, may ruin what otherwise would be a safe animal to eat.
It may be necessary to complete field processing of the carcass, while taking care to save the portion of the carcass that concerns you so you are able to show the Game Warden. If the Game Warden determines the animal is safe to eat, then your due diligence in handling your carcass ensures no. There are numerous variables that influence meat quality characteristics of game animals including species, age, gender, environment, harvest circumstances and carcass management.
Sparse scientific research exists that study efficacy of common practices employed by hunters to improve meat quality. Bleeding the animal is usually not necessary if the fatal wound was to the chest cavity or neck. Bleed the carcass further if you prefer, however, take care not to ruin the cape if you plan to shoulder-mount your trophy. Similarly, remove tarsal glands if you desire, however, research indicates there is no advantage to meat flavor by their removal.
Removing the tarsal glands prior to processing the carcass without thoroughly cleaning the knife and your hands may taint other portions of the carcass. Research on meat quality of wild ungulates in Europe indicated that removal of testicles shortly after harvest may prevent imprinting of strange taste characteristics. Great variability exists regarding animal age and tenderness of meat.
Also, physiological status and stress levels prior to death may influence tenderness. Generally, younger animals provide meat with greater tenderness than that of older animals. However, stress levels prior to death may also influence tenderness as do physiological condition of the animals prior to the hunt.
Just because you have shot a prime age rutting bull elk that has spent days eating little, fighting, spraying urine on his hind legs while rubbing his tarsal glands together and wallowing in a water, feces and urine cocktail does not mean that the meat will not be tender or tasty.
Similarly, shooting a spike bull elk is no guarantee that the meat will be tender. Poor shot placement followed by hours of tracking does little to enhance meat quality characteristics. A quick kill on an unsuspecting animal is the best approach to limit unwanted impacts to inherent tenderness of the animal. Ambient temperature influences meat quality by controlling the rate of bacterial growth on the carcass. Some bacteria may double every 20 minutes under prime conditions.
If Wrapping the carcass in light cloth, such as cold shortening occurs carcasses may cheesecloth, will protect it from dirt and benefit from aging. If killed in freezing conditions leave The primary reason for aging meat is to the hide on the animal to regulate the rate improve tenderness. Aging meat is accomof cooling.

The greatest gains in tenderness are achieved early in the aging process. Carcasses, hide-on or wrapped in game bags, that are hung in camp from one to several days have already been aged and usually require no additional aging.
Meat processors are often reluctant to age meat for customers as they are uncertain of carcass management prior to arrival at the facility and for liability concerns. Good hygiene and rapid cooling are important to minimize opportunities for bacteria to grow in a manner that reduces safety or meat quality characteristics. Temperature, moisture and cleanliness all play an important role in meat safety and quality.
Proper handling of the carcass reduces the risk of food borne illnesses cause by bacteria such as Escherichia coli E. While cases of Botulism. Further, botulism spores are resistant to heat and cooking is often inadequate to destroy the spores. Clostridium perfrengens results in a more common food borne illness often mistaken for the hour flu.
Current evidence suggests that CWD cannot be transmitted to humans. Regardless, many hunters prefer to take extra precautions. Chronic wasting disease is caused by a mis-folded prion, a type of protein.

I was born and raised in Tucumcari, my parents were school teachers, and my father was a western caricature wood sculptor.
As a family, we always traveled during the summer and I enjoyed learning about our travels from my parents. I feel that being able to share those experiences are important in raising children and you will find that, more often than not, I will have my children along by my side, if not participating. I am fairly new to the agriculture industry, although I attended college on an ag scholarship.

Minutes from the previous meeting were. Fish and Wildlife Service announced its latest round of funding to help ranchers affected by or living near wolves in December. One-third of that money will go toward projects in Arizona and New Mexico. One compensates livestock owners when wolves are proven to have killed their animals.
The other helps fund projects to prevent those conflicts from happening in the first place. Mexican gray wolves were hunted, poisoned and trapped out of existence in the southwestern United States by the s. By , the number grew to about wolves living within the 4.
The population, which was supposed to have reached by , has faced a number of challenges—including from a relatively small number of ranchers and local officials who remain vocally opposed to the wolf reintroduction program. Meanwhile, some ranchers and landowners are working with biologists and environmental groups to try and reduce conflict between cattle and wolves.
The goal is to support ranchers, their livelihoods and traditions— and also support a self-sustaining wild wolf population. For 12 years, that non-profit organization managed a program that compensated ranchers for livestock losses due to wolf predation.
Along with money from the non-profit Mexican Wolf Fund, and in-kind donations from livestock owners, they have leveraged the additional federal money, which is then distributed by states and tribes. In-kind donations can include things like materials and the use of equipment, horses and vehicles. Sometimes the animal is killed, while other times the problem wolves are hunted and placed in captivity. At the end of , the recovery program estimated there were 97 wolves in AZ and NMo.
Updated population information for will be released in February. The agency also investigated seven depredation reports in October, confirming four wolf-caused cow deaths in Catron County that month.

By doing so, we are standing up for responsible environmental protection, the rights of the regulated public, and the rule of law. Voogd, President, Voogd Consulting, Inc. This particular day I was able to prove that there are many factors that affect the disposition of the animal and ultimate outcome of the meat.
All of the beef that will be discussed were black, primarily Angus or Angus cross, but you will note a great degree of difference in sex, age, weight, temperament and carcass outcome. The origin was probably an. This small steer was extremely skittish, trotting off the trailer and ramming his hind end on the rear gate while being weighed on the scale. It then proceeded to gallop down the alley into an individual stall, skidding on the dry cement floor and crashing into the front and rear pen gates as the plant employee approached.
When moved toward the stun box, the steer balked for 10 minutes, refusing to enter the stun box and had to be returned to the holding stall to calm down. It also slipped in the lead up chute, nearly losing balance and falling, because of rapid, panicked movements.
It may be genetic, due to selective breeding for performance traits with little emphasis on disposition. But more likely the nervous responses were caused by lack of acclimation to humans or from several bad experiences earlier during loading or handling at the market or feedlot. Needless to say, the carcass was not ideal. Bruising was noted on the flanks,. I question whether the producer, terminal market or hauler is aware of the net yield loss associated with this poorly handled animal.
But what is the net loss versus a well handled animal? The steer was extremely docile coming off the truck, obviously trusting the farmer and the plant employees who weighed him on the scale. His weight was 1,, a bit heavier and taller in frame versus the previous steer. The farmer told me his grandson spent time with the cattle and they were used to people. This Angus steer ambled calmly to scale and the holding stall without a care.
When moved to the stun box, he stood waiting for nearly 30 minutes while the plant noisily operated the split saw, brisket saw and cleaned equipment in a nearby wash sink. Waiting a half hour in the stun box is not recommended, but the plant chose the ideal candidate.
When reviewing the carcass after hide removal, both sides were free of bruises. This producer would receive an excellent yield with no trim loss. Good eating for the family.
Healthy, calm and with excellent confirmation. When unloaded, he easily moved onto the scale and subsequently into the holding stall. When moved to the knock box, he hesitated, thinking he could not fit, but with a small amount of back scratching and encouragement from the producer, he walked into the stun box. This carcass was one of the leanest I have seen — and both sides were in excellent condition; no bruising or damage. After watching this magnificent animal, I wondered why he was not kept for breeding.
In my mind, he would be an ideal sire. Livestock that trust people are easier to handle at load out, unload and harvest. Understanding the principles of low stress handling and training employees to utilize these practices can help to assure that cattle are ready for the final day. There needs to be a time when no plant com-. The owner said she was having difficulty walking on one hind leg prior to calving and did not appear to improve after.

They returned to the famed Lincoln County war were Kid. He was described as about five feet a few hours later and shot up the place, getting hot.
Evans was firmly on the side of seven inches tall and weighing about through a window, killing three people, two Murphy-Dolan and The House faction, even pounds.
He had gray eyes, light hair and a of them soldiers. This were assigned the task of stealing horses June of and acquitted. Later the same event, of course, led to a shooting war in. On March 13, Tom Hill was killed while robbing a sheep camp.
Evans was wounded at the same time. Even though Billy the Kid vowed to kill everyone involved in the murder of Tunstall, he never made an attempt on Evans. In fact, it was rumored at the time that Jesse Evans was the only man that Bonney feared. In a lawless Lincoln County, Evans was an active horse thief and cattle rustler. All three were arrested and charged with the crime, but Evans and Campbell managed to escape from the Fort Stanton stockade before they could be tried.
Things in New Mexico had become uncomfortably warm for the outlaw, and he left for Texas where he promptly joined another gang of cutthroats. A Texas Ranger company chased. The entire gang was captured. Evans was sentenced to two ten-year prison terms and arrived at Huntsville Prison on December 1, He escaped from a work detail on May 23, , and officially disappeared from history.
He was never recaptured. There are several theories about what might have become of Evans. One is that he reverted to his real name, whatever that might have been, and lived out his years as an honest and up-right citizen. Another is that he took up with yet another outlaw gang and was killed sometime later. A third postulation has to do with a book published in called Alias Billy the Kid. In , a man named O. He knew too much about the war not to have been a part of it.
So who was Roberts? He may have been Jesse Evans, and for several reasons. First of all, the only Anglo involved in the war who. And then there was the matter of their descriptions, which were very similar, down to and including the shape of their ears. And finally, in spite of all that Roberts had to say about the players in the Lincoln County War drama, he had nothing even remotely bad to say about Evans.
At one point, Roberts, speaking as the Kid, even says this: But even more telling is the fact that Roberts ignored the fact that Evans participated in the killing of John Tunstall. Probably because in not many people had ever heard of Jesse Evans, while Billy had become something of a folk hero. If Roberts craved public attention, he surely got more as Billy the Kid than he would have as Jesse Evans.
Whatever he knew about Jesse Evans went to the grave with him. Whether he is floating down the Atnarko River with the grizzlies, or leading a string of pack horses through the mountains, he has spent his most enjoyable years outdoors.

But that is not always the case. The animals had been pastured only a minute drive from the Clifton Ranger Station at Three Way, AZ in an area with a known water delivery problem and little forage before monsoon rains.
No one with jurisdiction over the equines bothered to check on them for four straight weeks during the hottest part of the summer. Out of sight, out of mind. As might have been expected, the water system failed and the animals suffered a most unpleasant death.
The New Mexico Stockman contacted the U. Forest Service regarding the death of these horses. The leadership and staff at the ApacheSitgreaves National Forests is committed to improving livestock management protocols and pasture infrastructure, where necessary, for the well-being and safety of our livestock.
It had been the legal not to mention humane and moral duty of the responsible parties at the Clifton Ranger Station to properly care for these animals. Multiply that by three and it becomes even more serious. Their belief is that animal cruelty is very often an early indicator of future violent crimes. Although the FBI still allows the states to handle these cases, its new rule is meant to encourage those same states to invoke harsher penalties for such incidents.
An in-house inquiry, meaning the FS investigating itself, has so far not held anyone accountable. Which is hardly surprising since transparency and justice are often not well-served this way. But those animals actually belonged to American tax payers and had only been entrusted to the Clifton Ranger District RD employees. That trust was broken, as were well-defined laws of the state.
The FS has had more than four months to prove culpability and show the public that they took appropriate actions in order to regain some semblance of credibility.
The fact that the range staff person has recently left Arizona for a similar FS position in New Mexico does little to relieve public concern about such actions occurring again. Oliver is a freelance writer and wildlife consultant who has worked for the wildlife division of the FS on several ranger districts, as well as other state and federal wildlife agencies.
With herds located in several locations, we are able to test our genetics based on real world conditions. A modern approach is badly needed because it is increasingly clear the old approach, which has grown increasingly powerful since the s and is based on command-and-control, primarily from Washington, D. First, 60 percent of the U.
Second, conservation is, by definition, a human endeavor that requires active, hand-on management, not letting nature take its course. For example, about 11 percent of the U. Third, conservation often takes many years if not decades to show results.
Fourth, conservation needs to be flexible to respond to ever-changing, site-specific biophysical data and social information—a practice known as adaptive management. These dynamics also apply to the landowners who have rights to graze and use water on federal land, which con-.
Sixth, over the past decade a significant body of scholarly surveys, covering landowners in 19 states, reveal factors that encourage and discourage participation in efforts to conserve endangered species, including that landowners: Read more at dailycaller. Now comes a study that says that eating a vegetarian diet is not only NOT as healthy for the body, it can more often lead to mental deficiencies as well.
Soy is evidently not the savior after all, according to the University of Graz in Austria where they reviewed health interview surveys in Austria and in Europe. Those surveys showed that vegetarians are unhealthier and more mentally-disabled.
Anyone who enjoys a chunk of tofu more than a ribeye steak or a juicy hamburger is missing a few taste buds, if you ask me. According to the study, vegetarians are more often ill, have a lower quality of life than meat eaters, have more heart attacks and are a greater burden on the health care system. Just as vegetarians created knockoff meat products, we should turn the tables or at least the dinner table and make fake vegetables out.
After all, turnabout is fair play. Instead of chowing down on synthetic turkey called Tofurky, how does fake Tofurky made with real beef sound? We can call it Beefurkey. Remind me to apply for a patent. I wish you could see the counterfeit rutabagas I made from beef in my test kitchen.
Believe me, they look a lot more delectable than their attempts at counterfeit bacon made with bean curds. So lighten up veg-heads, instead of dreading another dessert of baked pears with bread pudding just think how good it would taste if the pears were made from hamburger and the bread pounding was covered with beef gravy. Because ground round is malleable I found it very easy to make it into the shape of zucchini, broccoli, beets and artichokes. I make a great slab of imitation tofu too, made from a chunk of Choice top sirloin.
My revolutionary idea will solve a host of problems. Make those lima beans out of beef and kids might actually eat them. Bogus vegetarian pizza made with beef would put a little pizzaz into those poorly attended vegetarian potluck suppers too. Peace would break out between the meat and vegetarian factions at Whole Foods, closet meat-eating-vegetarians will have coming-out parties, vegetarians and meat eaters alike will hold hands, sing Kumbaya, while we barbecue faux veggies and nibble nuts made with real beef ones.
Needless to say, I have been a full-time farmer and rancher ever since. Years later, my late-father asked if I regretted my decision.
Ogden Farm and Cattle Company was started by my late parents and continues today under the joint leadership of myself and my sister, Alisa Ogden. In working beside my father, I was able to witness a life dedicated to agriculture, one that required hard work, grit and faith. This is the same example I hope to share with my son and business partner, Joseph.
I have been married to my wife Teresa for 27 years. We have two adult children. Our son, Joseph, is my partner in Lookout Agriculture Enterprises and is married to Tessa, a first-grade teacher. I am honored and humbled to be your President. My vision is for the New Mexico Farm and Livestock Bureau to have further participation from all factions and generations of New Mexico agriculture producers in order to serve as a unified voice, however, the direction of this organization is dependent on YOU, its members.
A captain of a ship is worthless unless he has an active crew to keep the engines running and the cannons firing. Balancer cattle are registered hybrid seedstock that have documented pedigrees and expected progeny differences EPDs.
Balancer cattle combine the Gelbvieh growth, muscle, leanness, fertility, longevity and yield grading ability with the carcass qualities of Angus.
The Gutierrez family has ranched on the Diamond G since the s. Wade Woodbury married Maggie Gutierrez and has been active in the ranch management along with the family. It is Chris Gutierrez who mostly manages day-to-day operations on the ranch.
The Diamond G Balancers and Gelbviehs are a total package that makes good use of the arid high desert of western New Mexico. The Prossers date back to in agribusiness in Arizona. Bar T Bar Ranch uses the advantages Mother Nature provides while minimizing the impacts of variable rainfall. In the arid Southwest, success depends on the ability to be flexible managers.
Hybrids provide the simplest, most effective way to achieve heterosis — which means enhancing calf survival, breeding ability during drought conditions, efficiency on grass and in the lot, carcass yield, and quality grade.
Each bull is DNA-profiled for tenderness, quality grade, and many other parameters. The Diamond G first put the bulls on an Angus cross commercial herd and have been keeping most of their heifers for the herd although they do occasionally sell bred replacement heifers.
The fertility of Gelbvieh and Balancer is a big payoff for the Gutierrez family. The ranch breeding management is an A. The Diamond G achieves a. The calves, weaned at six months, are pretty much selling themselves at this point. They are easy feeding and grow well. They are pre-conditioned for 30 to 45 days and then the buyer takes them to wheat or grass.

If you are seeking a committed relationship, sex can be especially complicated. Too often we expect that sex means the same thing to us and our partners, and this is not always the case. Here's my four part test to determine if casual sex is a bad idea for you.
Before you sleep with that guy you're not in a relationship with, ask yourself: If I never hear from this person again, will I be OK with that? A surefire way to know if you're being honest with yourself about your expectations when it comes to casual sex is to answer this crucial question.
If your answer is 'yes,' then you're in the clear emotionally. You are able to separate the act of sex with a deeper emotional attachment. If your answer is no, don't do it! You are clearly hoping for something more than this person might be able or willing to give you. Engaging in sex with someone you're not in a relationship with is a gamble, and you shouldn't gamble unless you can afford to lose. One likely scenario is you are hoping that your casual relationship might turn into something more serious.
This is not unheard of, but going into it wishing and hoping for that is a bad strategy. You must learn to listen to what people tell you - and if their words and or actions are telling you they want to keep it casual -- believe them.
If the sex in question is with a friend or someone else who is likely going to be a continued presence in your life, modify this question to say: If this person tells me they are no longer willing or available to have sex with me, will I be OK with that? The same principle applies - if your friend with benefits falls in love with someone else next week, how will that make you feel? If it would make you feel badly, then you are more attached than you have admitted to yourself.
Am I able to communicate honestly with this person? I was recently asked by a woman if it was OK to ask a guy if he was sleeping with anyone else before she had sex with him.
I often hear women say they don't want to ask if the relationship is going anywhere before sex for fear of "scaring him off". If asking that question scares a guy off, he is doing you a favor. Better you find out now then after you have slept with him and your feelings are even more pronounced. You owe it to yourself and to your partner to find out if you're on the same page. The right man for you won't be deterred by your honest desire to have a relationship - he'll be psyched!
If you feel uncomfortable asking about a potential partner's sexual activity, the status of your relationship, or communicating any boundaries or preferences you have, do not do it. Sex doesn't have to mean everything, but it is an intimate act that can have serious, life-changing consequences no matter how safe you endeavor to be.
You deserve the self-respect to make sure that your sexual partners respect you enough to make you feel heard and respected. If you can't honestly communicate with this person and you're still willing to have sex with them, it could be a sign of a bigger self-esteem issue that is holding you back from the love you are seeking.
Am I able to practice safe sex with this person? Even with all of the education we have in this day and age about STDs, to say nothing of pregnancy, unprotected sex is still the norm for many. If you are about to engage in sex with someone who refuses to use protection, do not do it! This is a no-no even if you are a woman on the pill or some other form of birth control and your risk of pregnancy is low. She has any new sex partner take the tests before sex.
