It is becoming increasing difficult to keep the next generation of farmers and ranchers on the land.It’s no secret that the age demographics of the nation’s farmers and ranchers is increasing each year and the higher paying salaries of jobs in urban areas seem to entice more individuals to leave agriculture and their rural communities each year.CCA and CSU have teamed up to develop a program designed to give young and beginning farmers and ranchers the tools necessary to be successful in agriculture through the Colorado Ranching Legacy Program. A panel of past participants of the Colorado Ranching Legacy Program will speak about: the challenges that they have faced entering the agriculture sector, family involvement in transitioning the next generation,what it takes for a young producer to start out on their own, the attraction that returning to agriculture had to each for each of them, plusmuchmore.This panelwill provide a great venue to share ideas and for those looking to get the next generation involved, to come ask questions,and share ideas.
