RMFU members present Sen. Udall of Colorado with a Golden Triangle Award

National Farmers Union awarded the Golden Triangle Award to 40 members of Congress who have demonstrated leadership and support policies that benefit America’s family farmers, ranchers, and rural communities.

 
This year’s Golden Triangle recipients were selected for their leadership on a variety of issues, including votes on the farm bill and related amendments. It is the organization’s highest award. The Golden Triangle Award is based on NFU’s symbol – a triangle with “legislation” and “cooperation” forming the sides and “education” at the base. The Golden Triangle Awards have been presented to legislators since 1988.
 
Lawmakers representing Rocky Mountain Farmers Union states who received the award were:
Sen. Michael Bennet, Colo.
Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham, N.M.
Sen. Martin Heinrich, N.M.
Rep. Ben Ray Luján, N.M.
Sen. Mark Udall, Colo.
Sen. Tom Udall, N.M.
