Colorado Commissioner of Agriculture Kate Greenberg will host a meet-and-greet event in Lamar June 20 as part of several tours Commissioner Greenberg has made across Colorado to listen to farmers and ranchers across the eastern plains, San Luis Valley and Western Slope.

The event will be held at the Lamar Community College library from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.

Farmers and ranchers are encouraged to voice their concerns and recommendations regarding production agriculture and how the Department of Agriculture can work with producers. During the past few years, producers have been dealing with declining farm income and difficult weather events.

While in the area, Greenberg plans to tour agricultural operations in Prowers and Otero counties and meet with community leaders whose businesses depend on agriculture.
