CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Last week, Senator Cory Gardner and Senator Michael Bennet introduced a resolution “recognizing the 100th anniversary of the Colorado Farm Bureau Federation and celebrating the long history of the Farm Bureau representing the farmers and ranchers of Colorado.”
“Growing up on the Eastern Plains and working in my family’s farm implement dealership gave me a deep appreciation for agriculture and the organizations that work every day to help the industry thrive,” said Senator Gardner. “Since coming to Washington, I’ve been proud to work closely with the Farm Bureau to support Colorado’s agriculture industry and our farming communities, and I’ve been fortunate to have the Farm Bureau join me every year on my annual Colorado Farm Tour. Congratulations to the Colorado Farm Bureau on 100 years of being a strong voice for farmers, ranchers, and rural communities in the Centennial State.”
“Congratulations to the Colorado Farm Bureau for a century of important work to protect and advance our state’s rich farming and ranching tradition,” said Senator Bennet. “As a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, I’ll continue to partner with the Colorado Farm Bureau to ensure the 2018 Farm Bill is fully implemented and expand opportunities for the next generation of farmers and ranchers. I look forward to seeing what they will accomplish for the agriculture community and rural Colorado in the next 100 years.”
“The members of Colorado Farm Bureau are happy to have the organization’s 100th anniversary be recognized by Senator Gardner and Senator Bennet,” said Don Shawcroft, President of the Colorado Farm Bureau. “Recognition on the floor of the United States Senate is a fitting tribute to the contributions of the state’s largest agriculture organization and its 100 years of work on behalf of the industry and Colorado’s Rural Way of Life.”
