Colorado AgrAbility Project (CAP) was asked by the Colorado legislature to assist with a fact-finding and educational function to determine the potential effect on disabled new or beginning farmers of a law that would offer a retiring farmer tax incentives for leasing land to the new farmer. There has been excellent support for the bill, which will go to its second reading soon.
CAP was invited to attend the meeting of the Colorado Agriculture Council and to present AgrAbility. There were 38 members present representing all of the various commodity groups in the state, including corn growers, wool producers, the stockman's association, wheat growers, bean growers, dairymen, fruit producers, egg producers, etc.. CAP was well-received.
