From The Pueblo Chieftain:

The Colorado Department of Agriculture is slated to hold a drought response and recovery workshop on Monday at the Colorado State Fairgrounds in the 4-H Building from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Officials from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Department of Commerce, Small Business Administration and the Federal Emergency Management Agency will be among the federal agencies participating in the workshop. U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet said he encourages Colorado farmers and ranchers to attend the workshop.

“Colorado farmers and ranchers are working hard to recover from this summer’s drought, which had devastating consequences for livestock and crop production,” Bennet said. “This workshop will help producers learn about the different types of assistance available to them. The effects of the drought are widespread, and we need to make every effort to ensure a full recovery for Colorado farmers and ranchers.”
