Abstract

This study represents an attempt to trace the early history and development of just such an organization, the New Mexico Cattle Growers' Association. Founded in 1914, the Association had just finished its primary stage of development when it was forced to struggle, as were its remembers, through the early 'twenties, which were hard years for the cattle industry in New Mexico. The industry then revived and from 1926 to 1930 the Association prospered in the light of this revival. The early 'thirties again saw the cattle industry hard hit; in addition to their economic woes, the cattlemen had to contend with the intricate semi-legal aspects of the New Deal. This relationship was not rendered any easier by the innate individualism of these men; they simply could not understand the reasons behind such governmental interference.
