State of Nevada Department of Agriculture Sparks, NV . Awards won include the Max Deets Leadership Award from National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, NCBA’s Young Cattlemen’s Conference Chairman 2011. Past President Nevada Cattlemen’s Association. Goicoechea tried to make it sound like he cared for the welfare of the horses when in fact it was evident the only thing he cares about is the welfare ranchers.
There is NO overpopulation of horses but these guys don't let the truth get in their way. If the range can't support the few wild horses there are left then it certainly cannot support all the cattle which are many more in number than there are horses.
If the House Committe on Natural Resources truly wanted a fair and unbiased veterinarian who could speak the truth about the status of America's wild horses they would not have chosen a cattle rancher whose "witness" and "testimony" is a clear conflict of interest.
