BRIGGSDALE, CO – December 19, 2018 – Women continue to change the face of many industries, including agriculture. Through managing harvests, running the business and implementing new technologies, like: wind power and using RFID in the tracking of dairy cows for instance. Women are on the front lines – feeding our nation and the world. Many may be surprised to learn that women farmers make up 37 percent of Colorado’s producers. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture there are 21,443 women farmers in Colorado, who farm more than 13 million acres, making a nearly $285 million impact on the economy. There is a group of women farmers here in Colorado that are dedicated to sharing their personal experiences, science and research to help consumers sort through the growing number of myths and misinformation surrounding food and farming. The BARN is starting a NEW “Women in Agriculture” series spotlighting four Colorado women which include:

Mary Kraft, Jan Kochis as well as a mother & daughter team Danielle & Tabor Kalcevic

They do this important work as volunteers with CommonGround Colorado –www.FindOurCommonGround.com– a national grassroots movement designed to help bridge the gap between the women who grow food and the women who buy it.

The third and final interview within the  BARN’s Women in Ag Series is  Danell & Tabor Kalcevic, a mother/daughter team from Bennet, CO.…
