Meet New Mexico cattle rancher, Garrett Foote of Texico, New Mexico. The region’s dry, mild environment is ideal for raising cattle. They graze cattle on wheat during the winter months and in the summer months they graze on grass. The grass and wheat grown in the area is very nutrient dense so it makes sense to use the local resources and be stewards of their land.
Cattle were introduced into New Mexico in 1598, when Juan de Onate brought 800 cattle to the area. Today there are more than 1.4 million cattle.
