Welcome to the Nevada Cattlemen’s Association 


Habitat Restoration A Shared Vision

Participants of a two day cooperative tour with restoration work on the Maggie Creek Complex in the background.


The Elko office of the Bureau of Land Management in collaboration with the Nevada Cattlemen’s Association and private land owners recently hosted a range tour for cooperating agencies highlighting successful habitat restoration projects in the Great Basin and Northeastern Nevada area.

A number of the collaborative livestock management projects viewed over the two-day tour focused on improving riparian areas and uplands on both public and private lands in Northeastern Nevada. Some of these projects such as the Maggie Creek Complex have been in place for more than 25 years. Tour participants were able to compare several before photos to present visual points of reference that clearly showed fascinating habitat restoration results over time. The positive changes realized in these allotments have taken place through improved cattle grazing management rather than through an exclusion of grazing or through a reduction in cattle numbers.

Please join us for our Annual Convention. This year’s theme is “Habitat Restoration.” Pre-convention Committee Meetings have been  scheduled in October, and you also have the opportunity to become Nevada BQA Certified during the convention.

 Registration for convention will be here, on our website, and will also be sent out by mail and email near the end of September.

If you are interested in attending and would like more information please call the office at 1-775-738-9214 or email. 


Seeking "Teacher of the Year" Nominations

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.
