From the Greeley Tribune:

He was one of 12 people to be nominated by fellow cattle feeders to receive the honor, according to a news release issued Friday. Farr was a pioneer rancher, visionary, water expert, banker and was considered by many to be a true statesman, having served in several capacities under three presidents on the international level. Farr, who died in August 2007, also was president of the Greeley Water Board for 39 of its first 40 years and his water vision was legendary. He, along with Charles Hansen, publisher of the Greeley Tribune, and a handful of others, worked tirelessly to get the Colorado-Big Thompson built. That project brings a supplemental water supply to eight northeast Colorado counties from the Western Slope, a project Farr often called a second Poudre River for northern Colorado.
