Gov. Martinez signs bill into law restricting NM stream access


By Dan Boyd / Capitol Bureau Chief
PUBLISHED: Friday, April 3, 2015 at 1:03 pm


Gov. Susana Martinez has signed into law a measure aimed at strengthening current state regulations restricting the ability of anglers to fish and wade New Mexico waters on private property.

The bill was prompted a non-binding 2014 opinion by then-Attorney General Gary King that state law did not prohibit such public access to streams running through private land.

It narrowly passed the House — via a 32-31 vote — on the next-to-last day of this year’s 60-day legislative session, which ended March 21. It had passed the Senate by a big margin earlier that same day.

Opponents claimed the measure, Senate Bill 226, would limit public access to beloved fishing spots, but backers said it would merely protect private property rights and would not necessarily restrict access.

Specifically, the bill says recreational users can’t walk or wade onto private property through “non-navigable public water” without written permission.

My colleague Deborah Baker wrote about the legislation earlier this week. You can find her story here.

Martinez did not provide an explanation of her decision to sign the bill in her executive message today to top-ranking senators.

Meanwhile, the Republican governor also signed 13 other bills into law today, including several measures dealing with hunting and fishing.

Martinez has now signed 37 bills into law from this year’s session and vetoed one —  a bill dealing with drug testing for racehorses. The governor has until April 10 to act on legislation passed during the session’s final days.

Riddel Ranch-1


The Riddel Ranch is in Stonewall County, TX and is comprised of approximately 10,295 acres. The ranch is located near Aspermont and has several miles of highway frontage, as well as access by several county roads. The ranch is an excellent combination of native pasture and cultivated fields, with live water in two creeks and numerous large ponds and dirt tanks. The ranch is considered to have excellent cover for wildlife. The southern portion of the property is generally level and slightly sloping with a moderate to dense canopy of mesquite. As you transition north, cedar becomes more prevalent and the terrain becomes more broken. Rock Creek heads on the ranch and flows in a northeasterly direction through approximately two miles of the ranch. Another live creek flows through the northern portion of the property for approximately two miles.

The ranch is in fantastic condition with a tremendous grass turf. Many of the large earthen tanks have been cleaned out in recent years and hold water well.

The Riddel Ranch is a fantastic offering and would be very suitable for subdivision. The highway frontage and county road access makes for a very desirable property for an investor.

By New Mexico State Land Office – Agricultural Leasing Fee Schedule
How Does the Fee Formula Work for Agricultural Leasing on State Trust Lands?

New Mexico State Land Office – Aubrey Dunn Land Commissioner

The current fee calculation for agricultural leases was implemented in 1988. The fee formula takes into account a wide variety of factors which include the previous year’s rates by western livestock ranchers, beef cattle prices, and the cost of livestock production.

When cattle prices decline and the cost associated with livestock production increases, the grazing fee will decrease in response to these market conditions. Also, when forage is in demand by ranchers, it will tend to increase the grazing fee index and result in a higher grazing fee. These price rates are used to determine the fee formula.

Adjustment factors adjust state trust land grazing fees up or down depending on value of forage and economic conditions in the western livestock industry. The adjustment factor adjusts fees relative to a 1978-1987 base period, and there is a one-year lag between when the data are collected by USDA and when they are reported. Indices used are for 11 western states.

According to NMAC, the annual rental for grazing land is determined by this formula:

$0.0474 (Base Value)  x  Carrying Capacity (CC)  x  Acreage  x  Economic Variable Index (EVI)

The EVI is the ratio of the value of the State Land Office Adjustment Factor (SLOAF) for the current year to the SLOAF for the base year 1987, or 135 (i.e.; SLOAF ÷ 135)

The SLOAF is determined based on the following three indices described in the Public Rangelands Improvement Act (PRIA), and published annually by the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Forage Value Index (FVI)[1]:  A derived index of the relative change in the previous year’s average monthly rate per head for pasturing cattle on privately owned land in the West.

Beef Cattle Price Index (BCPI)[2]:  An index of the weighted average annual price for beef cattle, excluding calves, for a given western state area as compared with a specific base period equal to 100.

Prices Paid Index (PPI):  An index that measures changes in the prices paid for goods and services used in crop and livestock production and family living.

Since the formula was implemented in 1988, it has seen many increases and decreases depending on livestock prices, costs and private lease rates.

Top cowboys announce ERA Rodeo

By Chelsea Toy (Spin To Win)

By the time you read this post, you’ve likely seen top cowboys posting about ERA Rodeo across Facebook. If you’ve missed it, it’s a new association looking to host 15 rodeos, promising just the top talent in the industry across the country with a world championship in Dallas in 2016.

“It’s about a different opportunity for the sport with the best guys going against each other every time,” said Clay Tryan, three-time heading world champion.

Long-time rodeo sponsorship guru Tony Garritano is at the helm as president and CEO.

“We felt there needed to be a concentrated focus on the best guys in the world,” Garritano said. “There needed to be a way to showcase the best talent in the world and there isn’t one currently…by maximizing that, I believe we can help rodeo overall. If you showcase the best guys in the world, and they broaden the platform of the sport and increase sponsorship, over time more people will want to participate in the sport. If 1,000 new people get involved, and only 10 will make it to the best level, the other 990 will go to other tours and associations throughout the rodeo industry and help it grow.”
