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 for details on celebrations in northern New Mexico.
