Bob Winter, District 1 Director
I am a retired farmer and very active in Weld County Farm Bureau. My wife Janet and I have farmed for over 35 years in the Eaton and Windsor areas of northern Colorado; we grew shell corn, silage corn, sugar beets, malt barley for Coors, pinto beans, alfalfa, onions, and seed wheat. We also finished about 2500 head of hogs per year for slaughter.
I have served as the President, Vice-President, and Secretary/Treasurer of the Colorado Pork Producers Council and Northern Colorado Pork Producers Coop. For the past 30 years, I have held the position of President of Loup Reservoir Company. I have been an active participant in the Weld County Farm Bureau and have held various positions within the organization, including President for 10 years. Currently, I am serving as the District I State Director for Colorado Farm Bureau representing Weld, Larimer, Boulder, and Adams counties, and consider representing the District 1 Farm Bureau membership an Honor and Privilege--YOUR VOICE IN AGRICULTURE.
Lauren Felte, Weld County Farm Bureau Vice President
I began my life farming in the same area I was born and raised, Severance, Colorado. Although I am currently retired from farming, I still do custom combining in the fall harvesting wheat, barley, beans, and corn with a Challenger combine. In addition to custom combining, I work in the summer and spring as a salesperson for Arial Sprayers Inc. in Platteville; Arial Sprayers does rig spraying and air dusting.
I am a member of the Windsor Lions Club Chapter where I am one of the active Charter representatives for my youngest grandson Presten's Cub Scout Pack 57 in Windsor. In addition to my Lionís Club responsibilities, I also serve as the Economic Development Planning Commissioner for the Town of Severance. I have been an active member of Weld County Farm Bureau for many years, and currently serve as the Weld County Farm Bureau Vice President. I believe in Farm Bureau and think it is a great grass roots organization!
