They care about all animals, except for the cattle
It's a good thing freedom lovers still hold the Arizona legislature. Otherwise, we would be in a world of hurt, just like our neighbors. Agriculture is GOING to be phased out in the next ten years. Radical policies are popping up all around AZ. Both CA and CO are starting NOW.
Agriculture and mining are embedded in the state seal and ingrained in our heritage. We must understand that these are the folks whom we are scavengers. Miners, ranchers, and loggers created these roads we love so much.
The next time your hiking that old trail or cruising that old back road, remember it was likely a miner, rancher, or logger, who created that path through the wilderness.
We want to say Thank You to all of the men and women in AZ Agriculture. Especially those pioneering families who have been grazing this state for over 150 years.
Thank you AZ Ranchers
