Welcome to the Nevada Cattlemen’s Association 

   

Katlyn Uhart Chosen as 2016 Scholarship Recipient

Nevada Cattlemen’s Association would like to congratulate Katlyn Uhart of Home Ranch located near Wells, NV for being chosen the 2016 NCA Scholarship recipient.

Katlyn is very involved in different organizations including the Society for Range Management, National Society of High School Scholars, and the Stewardship Alliance of Northeastern Elko County (S.A.N.E).

Katlyn is homeschooled and learns many valuable life skills by working on her family’s ranch. She will be attending Utah State University to study Agricultural Communication and Journalism.

She states her goal is to, “Be the leader of a generation that changes the way people work together when it comes to agriculture. With my degree, my biggest dream is to preserve the rancher’s way of life by creating better relationships and fewer arguments.”

Congratulations again to Katlyn! We are very proud of you and have great confidence that you will continue to serve our industry well. Good luck on your future endeavors! Katlyn’s winning essay can be found in the July issue of Sage Signals.

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.
