Counties, Cattlemen Counter Meat-Out Day

Mar 19, 2021

A modern-day range war is sizzling in Garfield County and statewide over whether to eat meat or not on Saturday. KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh has this report.

After this story was aired, a spokesperson from the Governor's office responded to a request for comment from KDNK.  " Governor Polis is thrilled that his recent proclamation helped start a grassroots movement of support for cattlemen and the beef industry. Governor Polis is a strong supporter of Colorado jobs in the meat industry and was just in Greeley and Fort Morgan where the state partnered to provide the lifesaving vaccine to meat processing workers. Governor Polis is enthusiastic about how his proclamation is drawing needed attention and support for our ranchers and agriculture economy."
