Alone, Farmers Are Individual Voices, But Together, We Can't Be Ignored!
Colorado wheat producers need a strong and united voice now more than ever!
Our country is still climbing out of the economic crisis. Wheat prices have dropped significantly and are lower than the cost of production in some cases. Whenever budget deficit reduction comes up, loud voices in Congress call for a reduction in Farm Bill program payments and loud voices in the Colorado General Assembly call for suspension or repeal of agricultural sales tax exemptions. This highly politicized atmosphere calls for a strong and united voice.
The Colorado Association of Wheat Growers (CAWG) is that strong voice! CAWG and the National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) vigorously lobbied for improved crop insurance provisions in the 2014 Farm Bill that keep a strong safety net in place for wheat farmers. CAWG continually worked with our national legislators to get this bill passed, and in particular, CAWG worked to keep AGI limits out of the final bill.
Your $125 investment in a CAWG membership means money in your pocket. It's by working through your association that we can and do make a difference.
CAWG urges you to join CAWG or renew your membership and continue to make your voice heard. Our continued success depends upon your support!
