There is a good article today on the front page of the sports section in the Sacramento Bee. One thing that really stood out to me was a statistic they showed for Gray Lodge. In 1983 they killed 2752 roosters and in 2000 they killed a bleak 797, how sad is that? Looks like CA may start benefitting, like the midwest states do with CRP land, as state officials have secured $19 million from the federal goverment to enroll 10,000 acres in a reserve program that pays farmers to take land out of production and work with biologists to benefit wildlfe. In my opinion this is a good step in the right direction.
