Bingaman advocates for NM cattle ranchers Courtesy submission U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman is working to open up export markets" to New Mexico cattle ranchers. Bingaman was a cosponsor of a Senate-passed resolution that seeks to open up greater .ppor- tnnities for New Mexico beef ex- ports, which is a major part of our state's agricultural economy. In 2008, the last year that data are available, sales of beef cattle in New Mexico were $1 billion. "Cattle ranching is not only a major part of our state's cultural identity, it's also the backbone of our economy. My goal is to find ways to expand New Mexico cattle ranchers' opportunities to export," Bingaman said. In 2008 the American beef industry had a value of $76 bil- lion, while only 7.1 percent of beef production was exported; it was roughly 10 percent in 2003. Specifically, the resolution calls on seven countries that im- posed unfair restrictions against U.S. beef exports to reopen Vietnam were valued at about their markets to American ex- $3.3 billon; this revenue has de- ports.

"It's time for the rent restrictions U.S. beef exports United States to press its case on to China, Japan, Hong Kong, Tai- behalf of ranchers in New Mexico wan, South Korea, Mexico, and and across the West."

The suport group leader is PLTC (People Living Through Cancer) trained. PLTC strives to bring together those who understand the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual repercussions of cancer. Our programs and services help people face the challenges of cancer, obtain support from others in similar situations, and provide information and resources regarding various cancer issues. With supportive programs, PLTC is dedicated to helping improve the quality of life for cancer patients, family mem- bers, and caregivers as they cope with the various phases of cancer, including diagnosis, treatment, and life-after-cancer concerns. Though much of this group is dedicated to the support of cancer patients, it is open to all survivors or caregivers of any type of dis= ease.
