Educating our youth on the importance of agriculture is vital to the future of Colorado's ag industry.
At CDA, we strive to teach that agriculture is not just about cows and plows. Agriculture is part of the food they eat, the pets they care for, and yards they play in. We encourage everyone to learn as much about today's agricultural way of life and, if possible, pass that valuable information along to a young child who may be getting their first glimpse into agriculture.
