A program designed to help new and experienced farmers and ranchers explore the agriculture business is being offered by Colorado State University Larimer County Extension in October and November.

The Colorado Building Farmers/Ranchers program is a series of eight Tuesday evening classes taught by experienced local farmers, ranchers, and CSU Extension faculty from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., starting October 2nd through November 20, 2018.
