All Associations are organized by By-laws and a Tribal Ordinance 2B to conduct their livestock activities. Spring and Fall round-up are held annually and members participate in branding, castrating, dehorning, ear-tagging, injection of medicine for calves to prevent diseases and record keeping.


Cattle livestock are transported to the Prescott Livestock Auction in Prescott, Arizona, for marketing. Prescott is a preferred location due to the short trip that is not so stressful on the livestock.

The Agriculture Program has been delegated to carry out functions of the new ďFarm BillĒ Programs with the Natural Resources Conservation Services (NRCS) and Farm Services Agency. The Hualapai Nation participates in the Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP). The Hualapai Nationís EQIP projects include: Elk Crossings, Pond Sealing Pipeline, Cross Fencing, Storage Tanks, Troughs, Brush Management, Water Lot Fencing. All associations are participants in different projects. The Program Manager assists in coordination of projects and inspection when projects are complete.

Two Farm Service Agency Programs (FSA) includes the Livestock Compensation Program (LCP) an Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP).

Livestock Compensation Program: Coconino, Mohave and Yavapai Counties have been under a Secretarial Disaster Designation for Drought since May 17, 2002. On September 19, 2002, the Secretary announced the LCP, which will allow livestock producers in these counties to apply for benefits.

The Farm Service Agency Program was the lead in LCP compensation of funds to all livestock owners who applied. The Livestock Compensation Programís monetary reimbursement to all livestock owners using tribal lands is to cover for loss of livestock within Disaster Designation for Drought.

Non-insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) is an insurance program, which now covers Native Rangeland Grasses. Should there be more than a 50% loss during the crop year, January 1, 2002 through December 31, 2002, funding is available for reimbursement. The NAP funds grant all livestock owners for monetary compensation, based on animal units. Balance funds will go directly to each association. NAP is insurance money for cattle owners who took the risk of putting their cattle on tribal land.
