Cowboy up, wear a hat Saturday

........................................................................................................................................................................................

Saturday, July 26, is the fourth annual celebration of National Day of the Cowboy in New Mexico.

Cowboys have been part of New Mexico history even before it became a state, so it seems very appropriate to honor their past and current contributions. Keeping the Western way of life is an important part of our cultural heritage.

There are 6,800 livestock-producing ranches in New Mexico, and with the support organizations and services they employ 18,000 people and produce about $2.1 billion in economic activity each year.

Please wear a cowboy hat Saturday to help recognize and appreciate cowboys and cowgirls. And check out facebook.com/dayofthecowboynewmexico for details on celebrations in northern New Mexico.
