Every year, Freeport-McMoRan’s New Mexico operations purchases livestock at the Cliff-Gila Grant County Fair to support local 4-H and FFA members. This year, two steers and three pigs were purchased from the individuals listed below.
- Christopher Bennett, Breed Champion
- Matthew Ormand, Reserved Breed Champion
- Wyatt Robertson, Fourth White OPB
- Aiden McDaniel, Second Medium Steer
- Lane Frost, Third Light Steer
The meat from these purchases was then donated to El Refugio and the Silver City Gospel Mission. El Refugio is a shelter for victims of domestic violence. Silver City Gospel Mission helps those in need of food, shelter, and clothing.
We would like to congratulate all youth that participated in this year’s fair and give a special thanks to El Refugio and the Silver City Gospel Mission for partnering with us once again to give back to our local community!
