The room is overflowing with cowboy hats and boots, as well as a strong showing from the United Food and Commercial Workers Union.

There are a lot of familiar faces: Some of the farm organization officials, lobbyists and activist group leaders have attended all of the prior workshops. But there are a lot of new folks who are attending a workshop for the first time, with farmers and ranchers from all across the West arriving by the busload.
