Commissioner of Agriculture Don Ament invites agriculture producers to share their concerns about current agricultural issues from 7 to 9 p.m., May 22, in Julesburg, and May 23, in Burlington, CO.

"I want to hear what you have to say. So, I hope you will stop by," said Ament. "Congress will be considering amendments to the farm bill and we have an opportunity to provide input. We can talk about farm policies and other issues, like international trade agreements, food safety concerns, endangered species, resource management and water. Most important, we can talk about making agriculture profitable."

The Julesburg meeting is at the high school auditorium, located at 102 W 6th St. The Burlington meeting is at the Scout Center, located at 185 Madison St.

These meetings continue the department's tradition of outreach to rural areas across the state to keep in touch with those working tin the Colorado agricultural industry.
