ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Ranchers attending the 2016 New Mexico Joint Stockmen’s Convention in Albuquerque Dec. 1-4 are invited to stop by New Mexico Department of Agriculture’s International Room to meet and talk with Mexican cattle buyers, one on one.

NMDA marketing specialists Juan Sanchez and David Lucero – both of whom are fluent in English and Spanish – will be on hand to make introductions and help translate. The programs they work with can benefit ranchers of all backgrounds, regardless of exporting experience.

The International Room will be open Friday, Dec. 2, from 1-7 p.m.

After seeing success last year, 10 new buyers were invited to attend. The new buyers are interested in Angus, Hereford, Charolais, Santa Gertrudis, and Brangus breeds.

Jose Luis Gabilondo, from the Santa Teresa Livestock Export Facilities, will be available to answer questions about exporting livestock into Mexico.

Sanchez said ranchers are encouraged to bring their business cards, catalogs, photos, Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs), DVDs, etc. NMDA will have two laptops available so ranchers can show their digital content.

Ranchers must register for the 2016 New Mexico Joint Stockmen’s Convention taking place at the Albuquerque Crowne Plaza to talk to potential buyers. Registration can be found at and ranchers who cannot attend the Joint Stockmen’s Convention can get in touch with Sanchez by calling 575-646-4929, or emailing
