U.S. senator’s visit focuses on agriculture conservation efforts

Posted

U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colorado, recently met with the Colorado Cattleman’s Agricultural Land Trust to visit the group’s Agate Prairie Conservation Legacy project. The project is a partnership with several ranches and landowners in the Agate area in Elbert and Arapahoe counties.

The Nov. 20 tour focused on the agriculture conservation work CCALT undertakes with local landowners.

“I had a chance over the summer and fall to spend a lot of time with farmers and ranchers across our state,” Bennet said in an emailed statement. “Challenges like drought, low commodity prices, and trade uncertainty make conservation projects like this one more important now than ever for farmers and ranchers. I visited with CCALT to learn more about this work and how we can continue to support ag conservation efforts in Colorado.”

In addition to Bennet, attendees included Keven and Sandi Turecek, owners, Stacked Lazy Three Ranch; Erik Glenn, executive director, CCALT; Dale Purdy, owner, Purdy Ranch; Maggie Hann, director of external relations, CCALT; and Morgan Weinrich, events and logistics manager, CCALT.
