Jason and I are so pleased that we will be representing Colorado at the American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, in January in the Excellence in Agriculture competition.

I was also thrilled to be recognized as the first Colorado Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers Emerging Leader Award winner.

Congratulations and good luck to Colorado YF&R Chair Dale Bartee and Discussion Meet winner Nathan Weathers of Yuma County.

We have a number of amazing young people in Colorado Farm Bureau and I’m so glad to be a part.

Remember to give thanks for the farmers and ranchers who provide food, fiber, feed, and fuel to keep this country running!
