Wyoming FFA members to tour Gillette businesses
Full itinerary here!
Nov. 15, 200 FFA members will be in the Gillette area and tour area businesses.
The young people in attendance will tour Cordero Rojo, a coal mine operated by Cloud Peak Energy. They'll also have a chance to tour the kitchen facilities at Jordan's Western Dining. While there, they will enjoy a lunch including meat from the Durham Ranch located between Gillette and Wright. Their final stop of the day will be at L&H Industrial.
