Join us for our monthly Coffee Club, this month featuring Janie VanWinkle!

Janie and husband, Howard, currently own and manage 550 head of cattle in Mesa County. Working cooperatively with the City of Grand Junction, they lease three ranches owned by the City at Whitewater. They own and manage several other Agricultural properties around the Grand Valley. Howard and Janie are active in the community, both having been 4-H leaders and involved in the program in Mesa County. Janie served on the Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce Board for seven years, currently serves Western CO Community College Agriculture Advisory Board, and serves on the Grand Valley Power Board as the Vice-President. She is a Past President of Colorado Cattlemen’s Association, the third woman to lead the 154-year-old organization.
