New Mexico ranchers can meet with cattle buyers from Mexico during an event organized by the New Mexico Department of Agriculture.

The state agricultural department announced the Dec. 1 meeting and said it would serve as facilitator for the gathering, which will occur as part of the Joint Stockmen’s Convention running Nov. 30 through Dec. 3. The convention is sponsored by the New Mexico Cattle Growers Association.

“The previous meetings the last two years have resulted in successful sales, so we encourage New Mexico ranchers to attend,” said New Mexico Secretary of Agriculture Jeff Witte.

The meeting between buyers and sellers is scheduled for 1 to 7 p.m. at the Albuquerque Crowne Plaza, 1901 University Blvd. N.E.

David Lucero, director of NMDA Marketing and Development Division, along with marketing specialist Juan Sanchez, will facilitate the meeting and translate if needed.
