Governor Hickenlooper Authorizes Relief for Drought-Stricken Ranchers and Livestock Owners
Governor Hickenlooper has issued an executive order to ease hay bale restrictions for farmers and ranchers. The order allows over-sized baled hay or baled livestock feed to be transported that would normally be too large to comply with state law. The executive order allows the state to use loads of baled hay or baled livestock feed from 14 feet and 6 inches to 15 feet tall. The order will stay in effect until Oct. 21st.
