Business Coalition profiles Caren Cowan

Business Highlight- The New Mexico Stockman magazine

Caren Cowan was born in Arizona to a family that has been in the ranching business since 1884. She attended the University of Arizona where she obtained one of the first ever degrees in agricultural communications in 1975.

In 2003 her book, No Home on the Range, the diary of an executive cowgirl was published. In 2009 she purchased the New Mexico Stockman magazine and the Livestock Market Digest, a monthly newspaper. Based in Albuquerque, these monthly publications reach more than 40 states.

Not only does the Stockman contain NMCGA news and items of interest to the ranching and agricultural community, it also covers the issues that are impacting all New Mexicans. Topics like water, private property rights, wildlife, endangered species and much more are covered by the magazine. Past and current issues of the Stockman and the Livestock Market Digest are available - see below for contact information.

Caren currently serves as the Executive Director of the New Mexico Cattle Growers' Association in 1997 and the New Mexico Wool Growers, Inc. 1990. She is active in legislative, regulatory and litigation issues ranging from the Roundhouse in Santa Fe to Capitol Hill. Caren is also involved in numerous organizations and activities through New Mexico and the West.

A friend in so many ways, Caren keeps a steady hand on the wheel for the Cattle industry. She warrants the gratitude of all who choose the agricultural life.
