Clovis is the county seat of Curry County, New Mexico, United States,  with a
population of 37,775 as of the 2010 census. Clovis is located in the New Mexico
portion of the Llano Estacado, in the eastern part of the state. A largely
agricultural community it is also noted for its role in early rock music
history as well as nearby Cannon Air Force Base.
Like most of east-central New Mexico and west Texas, the vicinity plays host to
significant agriculture and ranching activities, including peanut and cotton
farming and cattle ranching used for both meat and dairy production. Several
processing plants exist for these products; in 2004 construction began on the
Southwest Cheese Company plant geographically located between Clovis and
Portales. The plant commenced operations in late 2005 and provided a small boost
to the local economy by employing over 200 personnel. It is one of the largest
plants of its type in the world, processing milk provided by the numerous local
dairies in excess of 2.3 billion pounds of milk annually.
Clovis' location adjacent to Cannon Air Force Base, a special operations base
has had a large impact on the community. Clovis hosts a local organization, the
Committee of Fifty (known locally as the "Shifty Fifty"), whose stated purpose
is to lobby to keep Cannon AFB open; it subsequently helped coordinate the
successful campaign which resulted in the realignment of Cannon to its new
special ops mission.
