‘Thank You’ to Don Brown for his Service to Colorado Agriculture

Following any state election there are many changes that take place. One such change occurring after the most recent election is the appointment of a new Colorado Commissioner of Agriculture.

CLA would like to sincerely thank Don Brown for his service to the state of Colorado as the Commissioner of Agriculture for the past three years.

“While we look forward to working with our new Commissioner we also want to extend a huge thank you to former Commissioner Don Brown,” stated Bill Hammerich, CEO of the Colorado Livestock Association. “Don is a true agriculturist who took his role as Commissioner just as seriously as he does the stewardship of his land and his livestock.”

Don Brown was appointed the Colorado Commissioner of Agriculture by Governor John Hickenlooper in January 2015. Brown is a third-generation farmer in Yuma County and has run several successful businesses while spending most of his career managing and growing his family’s extensive farm operations.

Brown received Colorado Livestock Association’s Top Choice Award in 2017 for his dedication to the livestock industry and all of agriculture in Colorado during his time as Commissioner of Agriculture.

Thank you for your service, Commissioner Don Brown!
