A Letter from Our Executive Vice President
As times get harder, people become more vulnerable to fraud and vandalism. With all the serious budget cuts at the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry, it is getting harder to continue to keep personnel in the field for our protection. The Brand Commission has made several arrests this year already on cattle thefts and cases about stolen diesel. When they make these arrests because of an informant, our association has a program called the Louisiana Livestock Crime-Stoppers. If you report an agriculture related crime, you will remain anonymous plus received a reward.
Without this program, the Brand Commission would not possibly be able to acquire as much information as they do. We need your help to keep this program going by making a donation or calling the office with information with ways to raise money to keep this program alive. The checks [to the informants] are written out of the Louisiana Cattlemen’s Association office and we, as cattlemen, are responsible for the program.
