Alliance President Testifies on Colorado River Drought

Family Farm Alliance President Patrick O’Toole, whose family owns and operates a cattle and sheep ranch in Wyoming, testified last month before the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Water, Oceans and Wildlife (WOW) on the Colorado River drought – an unprecedented disaster for many farmers and ranchers, their families, and rural communities.

“We’ve seen the ups and downs and the volatility of weather and the changing climate—now it’s clear that the cycle of life has been disturbed,” said Mr. O’Toole.
