Written by Holyoke Enterprise   

United States Department of Agriculture Colorado Farm Service Agency state executive director Leland Swenson encourages everyone to take a moment to appreciate the hard working farmers and ranchers in Colorado on March 25, National Ag Day. This year’s theme is “Agriculture: 365 Sunrises and 7 Billion Mouths to Feed.”

“We recognize the importance of agriculture and hope that the recent passage of a new Farm Bill is a sign that 2014 will be a banner year for the industry,” said Swenson. “There is no better way to show our support for farmers and ranchers than to begin implementing a new Farm Bill—legislation that will provide farmers, ranchers and consumers alike supportive results.”
