RMFU: Ag Day At The Capitol Celebrates Farmers, Ranchers, and Food

Along with the other members of Colorado Ag Council, RMFU hosted an educational booth during Ag Day at the Capitol, today. Ag Day at the Capitol takes place during National Ag Week, each year. The event showcases all that Colorado’s industry does for our state, highlighting ag’s successes in feeding Colorado’s five million people, its stewardship of our resources, and its $40 billion economic impact that makes it as important as tourism.

This year’s crowd heard from Agriculture Commissioner Kate Greenberg, Governor Jared Polis, Senator Kerry Donovan, and Representative Dylan Roberts.

We also welcomed RMFU farmers and ranchers like John Ellis, Sondra Pierce, and Meg Caley, who visited with lawmakers and guests attending the event.

Sondra Pierce, John Ellis, Ag Commissioner Kate Greenberg, Governor Jared Polis, and Nick Levendofsky were among those celebrating Ag Day at the Capitol.
