Celebrating a legacy
Ag Hall of Fame honors inductees from last 25 years
Douglas – Nearly 300 people attended the 25th anniver- sary Wyoming Agriculture Hall of Fame picnic on Aug. 17, where Rep. Cynthia Lummis and Dennis Thaler were inducted into the Wyoming Agriculture Hall of Fame, and inductees from the past 25 years were recognized.
“We’re proud to bring everyone together to recognize the achievements of those people in Wyoming agriculture over the last 25 years,” said Dennis Sun, publisher of the Wyoming Livestock Roundup.
Del Tinsley, former Roundup publisher and founder of the Wyoming Ag Hall of Fame, said, “This provides us a great venue to recognize those people who contribute to the Wyoming agriculture industry.”
The evening brought members of the agriculture industry together from across the state for a short program and barbeque.
WWP settles with landowners in trespass case
Lander – This week, plaintiffs released that documents were filed in a settlement from the June 2014 lawsuit against Western Watersheds Project (WWP).
“WWP has agreed to a permanent injunction against trespassing on any of the plaintiffs’ lands,” says Dan Frank, attorney at Frank Law Office, PC. “We’ve identified over 54,000 acres that are covered.”
The settlement also includes provisions for fines for future trespass and provision for required training.
Western Watershed Projects has trespassed on these private lands over 60 times since 2005.
On Aug. 17, nearly 50 Wyoming producers gathered in Douglas for the Farm Credit Services of America and Wyoming Livestock Roundup Cattlemen’s Conference. Attendees heard a variety of speakers on hot topics in the industry, and Rep. Cynthia Lummis attended to update Wyoming on the latest from Washington, D.C.
