Dairies are currently booming in Weld County, CO. The boom has been created by a massive Leprino Foods Cheese plant that has opened up in Greeley that will need an additional 60,000-80,000 dairy cows to meet the demand created by processing 700,000 pounds of cheese each day. Walking down the street in Greeley if you see a guy with a cowboy hat, he may well really have cattle. ;-)
