In order to correct public misperceptions and misinformation, five of Wyoming’s communities are setting the stage to spread positive and truthful messages about agriculture and rural citizens.

“There is a need for more education to the public and to policy makers in order to sustain the agriculture industry,” a Baggs Community Dialogues for Rural Wyoming respondent said.

Through the Community Dialogues for Rural Wyoming (CDRW) initiative, these five communities have decided to contribute to a centralized web log or “blog” hosted by the Wyoming Stock Growers Association (WSGA). Contributors from Baggs, Boulder, Kaycee, Lusk, Shoshoni and surrounding areas will provide entertaining and educational posts based on their daily lives and insights a www.realranchers.com.
