Colorado wheat farmers are invited to attend and participate in the annual county business meetings and elections jointly sponsored by the Colorado Wheat Administrative Committee, the Colorado Association of Wheat Growers and the Colorado Wheat Research Foundation. The business meetings and elections will be held January 21-23, 2020, at seven different locations.  Please see the table below for full details or visit coloradowheat.org.

The program at the meetings will include a presentation from Dr. Brent Young of CSU Extension on wheat marketing and economics. Updates on CAWG state and national policy efforts, new Plainsgold variety offerings and best management practices for the CoAXium(r) Wheat Production System will also be discussed during the meetings.

County-level representatives for both CWAC and CAWG will also be elected at these meetings. CWAC and CAWG are two distinctly separate organizations with different but complementary purposes. CWAC is the Commissioner-appointed Board of Control for the Colorado Wheat Marketing Order, whose purpose is to oversee how Colorado's wheat assessment dollars (two cents per bushel of wheat produced in the state) are spent on research, market development, outreach, education and other various endeavors.

Colorado Association of Wheat Growers is comprised of dues-paying members who are politically active, focusing on policy that impacts wheat producers and agriculture in general.
