On Tuesday farmers and ranchers from across Wyoming met for day two of the Farm Bureau Federation's legislative meeting.
Their first concern was the state's budget. Governor Matt Mead spoke about budget cuts facing the Department of Agriculture.
Byron Oedekoven, Executive Director of the Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police, spoke on rural theft. "Your biggest strength is pulling together and helping the Sheriff do his job" he explained to the farmers and ranchers.
Representative Cynthia Lummis addressed their frustrations with Federal rules and regulations. "I know how frustrated you are" she said "but because you stay in touch with me, I can be your voice in the House."
Representative Lummis and all of Wyoming's elected officials stressed the importance of farmers and ranchers voicing their opinions and concerns.
