Farm bureau says agricultural workers hard to find

PUEBLO — The president of the Colorado Farm Bureau says fruit growers and ranchers are having some crops go unpicked and animals untended because they can’t get a dependable supply of field workers.

Don Shawcroft said Wednesday the U.S. Senate needs to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill, a measure that House Republicans have rejected.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports Shawcroft said under the current visa program, growers aren’t able to get workers when they need them.
