Carnahan Angus Ranch of Rifle has been recognized nationally by the American Angus Association for having two registered Angus cows included in the association's 2013 Pathfinder Report.
Only 1,992 of the more than 25,000 American Angus Association members are represented in this year's report.
The Pathfinder program identifies superior Angus cows based upon recorded performance traits economically important to efficient beef production. These traits include early and regular calving and heavy weaning weights.
The Bookcliff, Mount Sopris and South Side Conservation Districts have cost share funds available for landowners in Garfield County for implementation of approved conservation practices that address water quality and quantity, soil erosion or range improvements.
Spring applications will be accepted through April 12 and are ranked based on resource concerns. They can reimburse up to half of a predetermined amount established by the review committee each year. Call 945-5494, ext. 105 for an application or go online to bookcliffcd.org.
