Irrigation water managers, trout fishermen, park personnel, boaters, fish scientists and energy distributors all gathered at the Grand Junction office of the Bureau of Reclamation on April 25 for a single, unified purpose: to learn how much water they can expect to see in the Gunnison River this summer.
The short answer: not much. But there are some interesting details.
Delta County 4-H'ers and FFA students weighed in their prospective market swine, sheep and goats on Saturday, April 27. Excitement was high for the 129 local kids who brought 75 barrows and 82 gilts, 70 sheep and 56 goats to be weighed in, because the annual weigh-in is the first step toward raising these animals for the 2013 Junior Market Livestock Sale.
