                        Monday, December 8, 2003

  Mr. McINNIS. Mr. Speaker, it is with great pride that I rise today to 
pay tribute to a talented rancher from New Castle, Colorado. Carol Dodo 
is a family-oriented rancher who has been feeding the citizens of 
Colorado for forty years. Carol is an intelligent educator and active 
participant in the beef industry and I would like to join my colleagues 
here today in recognizing her tremendous service to the New Castle 
  The Colorado Cattlemen/Cattlewomen's Association recently named Carol 
Dodo Cattlewoman of the Year for her long-time dedication to her trade. 
Carol runs a cow-calf organization at West Elk Ranch north of New 
Castle. She has been in the ranching business since the mid-fifties and 
has increased her involvement in the industry over the years by 
promoting and educating people about the benefits of eating beef. 
Despite the dwindling number of ranching operations over the years, the 
Dodo family maintains that raising cattle is a rewarding occupation.
  Mr. Speaker, Carol Dodo is a dedicated individual who is actively 
involved in the organization and facilitation of the beef industry in 
Colorado. Carol has demonstrated a love for ranching that resonates in 
her compassionate and selfless service to the Colorado Community. 
Carol's enthusiasm and commitment certainly deserve the recognition of 
this body of Congress. Congratulations on your award Carol, I wish you 
all the best in your future endeavors.
