COLORADO, Mesa CD – Mark Cremeens dug his shovel into the pasture at his Grand Junction ranch, pulling up a mound of grass and soil for the group crowded around him to see. The group was mostly fellow farmers and ranchers on a farm tour Friday morning organized by the Mesa Conservation District.

Conservation District treasurer Rob Breeden said he was happy to see farmers from all over the Western Slope participate in the farm tours. The group visited a vegetable farm and an orchard in addition to Cremeens’ ranch.

“It’s great to do some on the ground, not from a book education,” Breeden said. “Real life, real world experience and hear the challenges people go through.”

COLORADO, Morgan CD – Competition for the limited water resources used to be a primary, if not the primary, issue for agriculture in northeastern Colorado.

While quantity is still a major issue, water quality is increasingly important, particularly with deterioration of that quality. That was apparent at an annual locally led meeting hosted Wednesday in Brush by the Morgan Conservation District.

“The water quality is the biggest concern,” District Board Member Larry Hoozee said.
