Governor's Forum on Colorado Agriculture deadline for early registration extended through Feb. 11

Those wanting to attend the Governor's Forum on Colorado Agriculture at a reduced rate are still in luck, as you have a little more time left to save on registration costs.

Rather than registration increasing from $150 to $200 after Feb. 4, event organizers are pushing the early-registration deadline back a week, to Thursday, Feb. 11.
