Host of Colorado’s 850 KOA Morning Show, Steffan Tubbs, and producer/director of Droughtland the documentary, spoke to attendees of this year’s Cattle Industry Summer Conference. Steffan grew up with a great appreciation for farmers and ranchers and as he moved through his career in journalism, he has continued to express a passion for the ag community and has spent the last year gathering footage of Coloradans who have been hit by the most recent drought.
“I kept hearing so many stories last year that we would read on our station about the severe drought in Colorado. I convinced my management and I went down there and met with people impacted by the drought they had been dealing with the drought since 2002.”
Steffan said they started sharing stories of their families from the 50’s and how dry it was then. He then knew there was a true story to be told. He was surprised at the number of people who were willing to open their homes and hearts so he could share their determination and passion with the world.
Visit Droughtland.com if you are interested in helping to sponsor this story. Steffan is looking for a fall 2014 release date so stay tuned for where you can learn more about how the drought has impacted so many lives. These heros are still doing what they love, providing for their families and helping put food on tables nationwide.
