Colorado College Releases State of the Rockies Report

The Colorado College State of the Rockies Project has released its 2010 Agriculture in the Rockies ‘report card.’ Each section of the 2010 Report Card is dedicated to agriculture in the Rockies.

The report purports to  provide statistical overview of the region’s industry, but also delve deep into agricultural history, land and water use, demographics, production, finance, organization, and a “foodprint” of Rockies’ agriculture.

You can draw your own conclusions as to why Colorado College might seek to publish such a report. We will leave you with two observations:

1)      The cover of the report features a herd of buffalo (and contains other very odd photos for a report on ag).

2)      Colorado College does not have a college of agriculture or even an agriculture department.

One response to this post.
