“Colorado's farmers and ranchers contribute greatly to our way of life. Besides providing food and fiber, agriculture also protects our natural resources,” said Commissioner of Agriculture John Salazar. “Colorado's diverse agriculture and food industry is a large part of our great state's economy, generating approximately $20 billion annually and supporting more than 108,000 jobs.”
So, how will you celebrate National Ag Week or Colorado Ag Day? Will you buy local? Will you contact your local National FFA Organization (formerly Future Farmers of America) and see if they are hosting an event? Maybe you will become a follower of an ag blog? Whatever it is you do to honor your local ag industry I speak for thousands when I say your support is greatly appreciated.
