Colorado Cow

Colorado is home to towering mountains and flat plains. Soils in the eastern plains regions and the valley of the western mountains are the most fertile in the nation. The Centennial State’s climate is generally dry and sunny, and because of the difference in altitude across Colorado, there is a large range of temperatures. The state’s top commodities include cattle, corn and wheat.
