The Colorado chapter of the American Agri-Women was created in January 2010 to be a "Force For Truth In Agriculture". Colorado Agri-Women is a 501(c)3 organization made up of farmers, ranchers, industry personnel, educators and consumers all joined together to educate themselves and others on important agriculture related issues.

Members are allowed to have as much voice or as little voice on agriculture issues effecting farming and ranching as they choose. As members of the Colorado chapter, members are also part of the American Agri-Women. The strength of the American Agri-Women is they only take positions on issue there they agree, focusing efforts on the common ideas and values. You can find the American Agri-Women Position Statements at AmericanAgriWomen.org

    With any organization changing leadership helps renew vigor and excitement. Previous officers still hold CAW near to their hearts staying active by supporting and promoting the organization. New officers bring fresh ideas and interests to the group, making sure the group doesnít stagnate. The Colorado Agri-Women are lucky to have had great officers in previous years and have new officers this year.

    The new leadership consists of President Janell Reid of Ordway, Vice-President Becky Ravenkamp of Hugo, Treasurer Dianne Clark of Karval and Secretary Brittaney Hudson of Bennett. All four of these agri-women are active in their communities and bring enthusiasm and experience with them.

    President Janelle Reid farms and ranches with her husband John, and son and daughter- in-law, Chip and Nikki Reid, and grand kids near Ordway. Janell has been active in the Lincoln County Republican Party for many years, running the county caucus and organizing Republican visits. She is also very active with the Colorado Independent Cattle Growers and has been a long time supporter of the local 4-H and FFA programs.

    Vice-President Becky Ravenkamp and her husband, Scott, have a dry land no-till farm and ranch near Hugo. She is currently on the Genoa-Hugo School Board serving as the vice-president and the past treasurer. She organizes the Colorado Conservation Tillage Associationís annual High Plain No-Till Conference and is passionate about soil health. She also serves on other community boards while supporting her three kids and husband in their school and community activities.

    Treasurer Dianne Clark is no stranger to being busy! Her and her husband, Cody, farm and raise red angus cattle near Karval with the help of their son and daughter-in-law, Jamie and Ryan. Dianne is a member or an officer of six community organizations, including the property rights group CARR who recently helped defend property rights for eastern Colorado landowners. As if being involved in all the community events is not enough she also happily volunteers to watch her grandson Wyatt, while anticipating the arrival of a granddaughter in December and another in March.

    The new officer team has high expectations for the Colorado Agri-Women. As CAW sets off on a new year the enthusiasm and passion of the new officer team is sure to spark excitement in current members and draw in new members.
