Colorado Corn District 4 meeting in Holyoke to focus on farm bill
Colorado Corn staff and board members encourage corn producers and all others interested to join the Colorado Corn Administrative Committee and the Colorado Corn Growers Association for their upcoming district meeting, which will feature updates on the activities of the two organizations, as well as discussions about the next farm bill.
The Colorado Corn District 4 meeting will take place from noon-1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 28, at the Phillips County Event Center in Holyoke (22505 U.S. 385). District 4 includes Phillips and Sedgwick counties.
At this meeting, CCGA will also be holding board member nominations for its District 4 director position. That position is currently held by Kyle McConnel, who is eligible for a second term.
Lunch will be provided at the meeting. To get an accurate headcount, those attending are asked to please RSVP by Monday, June 19, to firstname.lastname@example.org, or (970) 351-8201.
Additionally, the two organizations are conducting a farm bill priorities survey in advance of the district meeting. With the next farm bill being a main focus of discussions, Colorado Corn staff and board members are requesting that producers complete a brief, 10-question survey ahead of time, in order to take full advantage of this opportunity for face-to-face dialogue on a critical topic.
The farm bill governs national food and farm policy — including crop insurance, nutrition and conservation — and is typically reauthorized every five years.
Farmer input will be vital in making sure CCAC and CCGA leaders relay the priorities of the industry to lawmakers in Washington, D.C.

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis is expected to sign SB 21-87, known as the Farm Workers Bill of Rights, though much of the content will be decided through the rulemaking process.
