Colorado’s Front Range:
The Colorado Front Range is the most populous region of the State of Colorado and one of the fastest growing regions of the country. The area is located just east of the Rocky Mountain foothills along I-25 where the Great Plains meets the Rocky Mountains. Geologically, the region lies mostly within the Colorado Piedmont, in the valley of the South Platte, Big Thompson, and Arkansas rivers. The region contains the largest cities and the majority of Colorado’s population.
Weld County is an agricultural empire of 2.5 million acres of which 75 percent is devoted to farming and raising livestock. Weld County is Colorado's leading producer of beef cattle, grain, sugar beets, and dairy products. Weld is the richest agricultural county in the United States east of the Rocky Mountains, leads the state in the value of agricultural products sold, and is typically in the top ten richest overall nationally. In total, Weld’s agricultural products annually create over $1 billion of market value.
Fertile fields of green can be found in every part of the county. Every year over 875,000 acres of cropland is planted with over 300,000 of those acres irrigated. The state’s ideal climate, ready feed availability, and quality water make it an ideal agricultural locale.
