Agricultural leaders Rolando A. Flores, dean of New Mexico State University’s College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences, and New Mexico Secretary of Agriculture Jeff Witte will be at San Juan County’s McGee Park, 41 County Road 5568 south of U.S. Highway 64 from 6 to 8 p.m. to visit with community members.

“The best way to know about the agricultural issues in a region is to listen to the stakeholders,” Flores said.

This will be the third year the two leaders have held sessions around the state. The 2019 schedule began in Silver City on April 2. The final session will be July 17 in Artesia.

“We look forward to meeting with New Mexico residents,” Witte said. “These sessions provide them the opportunity to engage in a face-to-face conversation with us.”
