VENDORS

VOLUNTEERS

T

he biggest part of the Four States Agricultural Exposition is the number of vendors that come from not only the four states, but also from across the western United States. These vendors offer up-to-date technology, products and services to improve affairs for everything from small gardening to large farming and ranching operations. Our vendors also include a variety of services, from insurance, banking, heating and home security, to feeding farm animals with the best quality of nutrition. They provide the education, knowledge, and hands-on skills you need. Many of our vendors – indoors and outdoors – will provide demos and interactive activities for all ages during the three days of the event.

T

he Four States Ag Expo would like to acknowledge and thank every volunteer who helps make the show run smoothly. Volunteers offer their time, products and services each year to help the Expo provide three very eventful days. The Four States Ag Expo has been in Montezuma County for 35 year now, and if offers a huge venue for agriculture to the community and the surrounding Four Corners area. Without volunteers, we wouldn’t be able to offer that to the public, farmers and ranchers in the area. We extend the invitation to anyone who would like to help: There is always a place for everyone.

MEET THE CLINICIANS MIA STOVALL

Tell me a little bit about yourself . . . I have lived in Bayfield, Colorado, most of my life and have worked with dogs in various capacities since I was a child. I have three Australian Cattle Dogs and a Boston Terrier.  I enjoy participating in many dog sports activities such as Rally Obedience, Agilty, Obedience, and Herding.  What do you do for a living and what do you like most about it? I work half time at Bayfield Animal Hospital as a Veterinary Technician and half time as a Dog Groomer.  I most enjoy the animals and helping them live healthy lives. What will you present at the Four States Ag Expo? I will be running a herding trial as well as herding instinct tests.  Both geese and sheep will be available.  Additionally, I will be offering a Farm Dog Certification for the first time in this area. Who is this clinic for? Anyone who is interested What do you hope others gain from these clinics? I hope people will see that this is a fun and challenging sport and a way for them to get into something different with their dog. What part of the expo are you looking forward to? Getting people interested in herding and providing an opportunity for locals who are already interested in the sport to trial and earn some titles for their dogs.  Ultimately I hope to build a group of people who are willing to participate in local trials.  As it now stands, local people have to travel far (Albuquerque, Phoenix, and beyond) to attend sanctioned trials. Is there anything you would like to add or something you want to communicate to attendees? I hope people will just come out and watch, even if they do not want to trial a dog.  The sport is fun and interesting to watch, and I hope to be able to explain some of the details of the sport to others.  We will have two very qualified judges who will be working the trial:  Cathy Sumeracki (New River, Arizona), and Anita Ramsey (Pueblo, Colorado).  They will be available for assistance and questions as well.

BRANDI LYONS

CARL WOOD

Tell me a little bit about yourself . . . I am from Scottsdale, Arizona. I am married with 5 girls! Ages 21-13. I grew up in Colorado and miss it everyday! I was a trainer and clinician for many years, these past 10 years I stayed home and trained in Arizona so that I could raise my kids. Now that they are of the age where they can come on the road with me I am back to traveling and giving clinics. Watching horse owners finally understand something that has been giving them a hard time is what drives me to stay out here on the road! What do you do for a living and what do you like most about it? I am a trainer and clinician. I love traveling around the country making new friends and helping riders of all ages attain the relationship they have wanted with their horse. What do you hope others gain from these clinics? I hope that everyone that comes out to watch my demonstrations walks away with something they can go home and do. I want to make sure that you walk away with something that is easy to understand and you can be successful at attempting by yourself. What part of the expo are you looking forward to? I love the expos because I get to meet so many people that are excited about their horses and learning different ways to communicate with them. I am a huge fan of the shopping as well!!! I am excited to be back in Colorado doing what I love. Its an honor to be a clinician for the Four States Ag Expo! Is there anything you would like to add or something you want to communicate to attendees? Please come by my booth I am happy to answer any questions. I would love to sit down and talk with you and help you in any way I can. Tell me a little bit about yourself . . . Presently my wife, Alice, and I live in Park County at Shawnee, Colorado. Alice works as a wrangler for a guest ranch in Arizona during the winter & volunteers with the Forest Service to work with me in the spring & summer months. My life with horses started by being raised with parents who owned a hunter-jumper stable. I won my first blue ribbon at 6 years old and the next year started riding jumpers and hunters.

GLENN RYAN

What do you do for a living and what do you like most about it? In 1975 I graduated college with a degree in Natural Resources and started working for the US Forest Service the next day as a wilderness patrolman/packer. Working in land management for 26 years has been very rewarding. The whole time in this career I have been horseback employed as a packer, patrolman, gathering wild horses and as trail crew foreman. Since 2004 my job is the Lead Packer & Manger of the Rocky Mountain Regional Specialty Pack String. In Northern California I worked in the cattle industry 15 years on ranches as a cowboy & ranch foreman, owning stockers, for a veterinarian, auction yard and for a cattle buyer. The Rocky Mt. Regional Specialty Pack String helps projects within the states of Nebraska, South Dakota, Wyoming & Colorado

Tell me a little bit about yourself . . . I own and operate Doubletree Horse Farm in Delta Colorado. I have worked full time for the past 37 years as a professional Horse Trainer at this location. I own 5 stallions and breed, train, show, sell, put on events, and travel around the country doing clinics, judging shows and consulting on various equine activities. What do you do for a living and what do you like most about it? I work 24/7 doing what I love. What do you hope others gain from these clinics? More exposure for me and my methods to the area. What part of the expo are you looking forward to? Working with the attendees and their horses to be better and enjoy their equine experience. Is there anything you would like to add or something you want to communicate to attendees? Always take every opportunity to broaden your level of skill by learning from every equine professional you can.

by packing in supplies, camp gear, timbers, posts, wire, gravel, lumber, tools & other materials that the crews may need. We also represent the Forest Service at public events & hold trainings/ clinics in packing, horsemanship & trail maintenance. What will you present at the Four States Ag Expo? At the Four States Ag Expo I will be one of the clinicians in the horse barn showing folks packing skills & techniques. What do you hope others gain from these clinics? Some of the points I hope to teach the folks attending the clinics are: the difference between the styles of decker & sawbuck packing, understand what characteristics to look for in safe & dependable pack stock, learn the purpose/fit/function of the tack, different hitches, discover the advantages of selecting the right lead/whip animal & the 6 points of leading a string of pack mules/horses.

he Four States Agricultural Exposition is bursting at the seams with learning opportunities for all ages. The Ag Summit workshop is just another one of those great chances to learn while also earning valuable certifications. This year, Gus Westerman with CSU Extension Dolores County is leading the Ag Summit in the Ag Summit Room all three days of the Expo. “The workshops will include educational sessions that focus on many different aspects of agriculture and issues that our local producers face,” Westerman said. The Ag Expo is affordable and allows locals to connect with experts through informative sessions geared to help producers and landowners improve their property and agricultural operations. Westerman also said Representatives and Senators are usually present Saturday, and use this as an opportunity to reach their constituents as well. For a complete listing of workshops and their times, refer to the schedule beginning on page 12.

his year’s Seed Stock Row allows attendees to browse aisles of premium stock, examine pedigrees and make connections with growers in this region. President Spark Reed said it is a great opportunity for ranchers to exhibit the animals and conduct business sales. “In the local four corners area, we have some very reputable registered seed stock growers,” Reed said. “The Ag Expo is a great place for them to advertise and get those animals in front of the buyers.” Make no mistake, however. Reed said the stock will be available for purchase on the condition that the animal stays at the show through Saturday. Seed Stock Row is not just for registered seed stock growers, though. Those with good commercial stock will also be there to showcase their animals and make connections. Check out Seed Stock Row next to the Event Pavilion, open each day of the Ag Expo.


YOUTH IN AGRICULTURE A

t the Four States Agricultural Exposition, there is something for everyone. Even the less-experienced farm hand can learn a thing or two, thanks to the Montezuma School-to-Farm Project. For the second year, the Montezuma School-to-Farm Project will usher the youth through interactive learning experiences in the Children’s Agricultural Learning Facility, otherwise known as C.A.L.F. This portion of the event focuses on hands-on education for school-aged children. Last year more than 400 students ranging from kindergarten to sixth grade participated. By working with schools in the region, Christine Foote, coordinator for the CALF program, scheduled field trips for groups of students Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. “This year we are bringing out mostly first graders, so that we have a little more consistency between the counties,” Foote said. “We are looking at a little over 500 kids in two days. It is really exciting. We try to give the kids a diverse experience, so they aren’t just petting animals the whole time they are here. They are learning. We try to create experiential learning opportunities for students so teachers can integrate them into their lessons in the classroom by referencing different stations.” On the designated field trip days, presenters will manage their individual stations and give demonstrations on four major topics including growing, soil and water conservation, animal science and homesteading. So far, the schedule includes stations run by local experts and organizations that teach students about agricultural

skills and techniques like leather making, horse packing and driving, dog training and how to keep pests out of the garden. Other stations focus on goats, worms, eggs, cotton and much more. Teenage students will also have the chance to teach others at the Expo. “The Expo is a really great chance for our youth to connect with local growers and producers and folks who still utilize these skills,” Foote said. “Agriculture is really important to this area, so it is really nice to make sure every kid has been exposed to it. We also like to offer older student the opportunity to teach the younger students, so we have some teens participating by running booths.” MSTFP places an emphasis on not only the educational portion, but also making sure there is an interactive element to every station. In 2009 when the MSTFP began, the program started connecting in guest speakers and local experts to the classrooms. Thanks to this link, Foote said working with the presenters and students just makes sense. “It felt really good to step into the coordinating position after participating as an education booth for a few years,” Foote said. “It’s a core piece of our mission to provide an experiential education opportunity. We work with all the presenters beforehand to help fine-tune their lessons and make them age-specific with a hands-on element - which makes us a really nice fit for the coordinating role.” Though there are scheduled field trips, C.A.L.F. will play host to a variety of stations and activities all three days of the Ag Expo. Children who are not visiting on a field trip are encouraged to check it out.

AG-CEPTIONAL RODEO

D

eveloping new events for the youth is one of the top priorities for the Board to consider annually. This year, the expo will host the first Ag-ceptional Rodeo. The Ag-ceptional Rodeo is a way for children with special needs to participate in hands-on, agricultural activities. Board member Kristi Ross said these new additions to the expo allow these children to participate in similar activities in a more comfortable environment. So far the Board plans to host a stick-horse barrel race, sack race and goat tail untying competition. There will also be bucking bronco made from a sawhorse for children to ride. “We are also working with physical therapists and occupational therapist to design more events for these kids,” Ross said. “We are excited to grow this event. If the community sees this and supports it, I believe it will grow into something that we can be really proud of.” The Ag-ceptional Rodeo is designed to give each kid a special opportunity to shine, and volunteers are needed to make that happen. “We need a volunteer army,” Ross said. “Not only to help at the event, but we also need people around these kids to cheer these kids on.” The Ag-ceptional Rodeo takes place Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

THE FIRST EXPO ... THE REST OF THE STORY By Bob Bragg

A

lthough the first Four States Agricultural Exposition was produced in 1983, the story starts in 1981. Rich Hamilton, Owner of KVFC, a long established Cortez AM radio station, decided his station would organize a farm show at the new Montezuma County Fairgrounds coliseum building during the late winter of 1982. Being from the Midwest, Hamilton was familiar with farm shows where agricultural business showcased products and services that they wanted to sell to farmers, and saw the show as an opportunity to sell radio advertising to exhibitors as well. Since I taught vocational agriculture and was the coordinator of the Cortez Young Educational Association Program at San Juan Basin Vocational Technical School, Hamilton contacted me to see if the school was interested in setting up some educational classes during the show. I agreed since it looked like a good way to promote adult agricultural classes at the school. The Young Farmers Program was offered to adult farmers and ranchers in the region by the Vocational Technology School’s agricultural department. Classes were offered in Cortez, Mancos and Ignacio. The program provided a series of educational classes on topics selected by members, and included leadership development activities modeled after the secondary FFA program. However, when the owners of the KRTZ FM radio station, a newcomer to the area, caught wind of the scheme, they called “foul!” Their rational was that they were the voice of agriculture in the area, because their music format was country western, and they reached a wider area of the Four Corners than KVFC. So KRTZ formed an alliance with the Cortez Journal and announced a plan to produce another farm show. Since neither station was willing to defer to the other, there were two farm shows in Cortez during the late winter, early spring of 1982. With the agricultural economy in a nosedive, this was a hardship for agricultural business because they felt forced to spend scarce time and money for exhibits at both shows to avoid missing potential customers. During the early fall of 1982, both stations announced each planned to produce a farm show again in 1983. When the agricultural business owners heard of this, a group of them decided they needed to find a way to get the stations to agree to have only one show, and their plan was to find an independent organization that would organize it. Someone thought that the Cortez Young Farmers Educational Association might be interested. Since I was the Young Farmer Coordinator, I was asked to take the idea to the membership. The group of about 25 members agreed they would take on production of the show if the radio stations could be convinced to drop their plans and support their efforts. I also discussed the idea with the

vo-tech administration, and they gave me a commitment that the school would provide administrative support if the Young Farmers were successful. Since Young Farmer members were good customers of the major agricultural businesses in the area, they talked to managers and received commitments of support for the production of one farm show in 1983. Then business owners and representatives from the radios stations and the Cortez Journal were invited to a meeting to discuss the plans. However, before the meeting, I visited with Rich Hamilton. He expressed to me that he was frustrated a good idea was mired in the competition between local media entities. When I laid out the concept of the Young Farmers producing the show, he agreed it was best for the community. We developed a script that called for Hamilton to take a hard line stance in the meeting, stating that he would run a KVFC farm show even if KRTZ and the Journal also produced a show. But when the Young Farmers revealed their plan, he would back them instead. During the meeting, both groups confirmed their plans to run separate shows. Agricultural business representatives made it clear if that was the case, they would not attend either show. Then the Young Farmers proposal was revealed. The farm show competition was finally reined when Rich Hamilton agreed to support the Young Farmer’s plan, and the agricultural businesses agreed they would support a Young Farmer’s produced show. When the Young Farmers started organizing the 1983 show, they decided to name it the Four States Agricultural Exposition, because it reflected the show’s relevance to farmers and ranchers in the Four Corners region, rather than just Cortez or Montezuma County. They promoted the show by pointing out that farmers and ranchers would have to travel to the Greeley Farm show in eastern Colorado to see a larger collection of agricultural products and services. Over time, exhibitors from throughout the western slope and beyond were enticed to come to the show to exhibit unique products that producers might not see at local businesses. The Young Farmers grew the show to 60 or 70 exhibitors in 1984, but the time and effort required to organize the show in 1985 was more than a small group of farmers and ranchers could muster. The San Juan Basin Technical School then took full responsibility for the show, and provided financial and administrative support for it until 2000. When the 2002 Ag Expo opened, the number of exhibitors almost quadrupled when compared to the first show. To assure that the Ag Expo would continue, a committee comprised of local businesses and volunteers formed the Board, which continues to operate the Four States Agricultural Exposition as non-profit corporation today. 2017 Four Corners Agricultural Exposition Guide •
