The annual Colorado Livestock Association membership meeting was held June 19 in Breckenridge, Colo. The membership elected the following leadership at the meeting:

Board members elected to a three year term: Todd Sigmon, Dinklage Feedyard; Steven Campbell, Mountain Prairie; Grant Bledsoe, Bledsoe Cattle Company.

2013-2014 Treasurer: Rex Buck, Wray Cattle Company.

Members also heard an update from Jeffrey John, advisor for Agriculture and Rural Policy for Sen. Michael Bennet on the status of the immigration bill. Norm Dinis, Mary Kraft, and Jon Slutsky have worked closely with Bennet’s staff providing input.

Marcia Benshoof and Jim Sugden, with the Colorado Health Benefit Exchange addressed the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act and how it will affect livestock operators in Colorado.

Dr. Brock Faulkner who has been representing CLA and other ag interests in discussions related to nitrogen deposition in Rocky Mountain National Park informed those in attendance that CLA had been awarded a Conservation Innovation Grant to be used in the development of a tool to better manage the NH3 (ammonia) emissions from their operations. This tool will be utilized to predict upslope weather events that contribute to the deposition in the park. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and CLA are both contributing financially to the project.
