Salazar pushes for National Bio Agro Defense facility to come to Lower Arkansas Valley


“The Lower Arkansas Valley is home to a large concentration of cattle production, and La Junta, Colo., is one of the nation’s largest livestock marketing areas. It should also be noted that Colorado State University, which is one of the nation’s leading agriculture colleges, is located in Fort Collins, Colo., and they have branch campuses and extension offices located in the region,” Salazar said in the letter.
