(Cheyenne, WY) –Governor Mark Gordon signed a proclamation declaring today, March 20th as Hearty Meat Day in Wyoming. He encourages Wyomingites to purchase and eat beef, lamb, and other meat products on this day.
This proclamation counters Colorado Governor Jared Polis’ proclamation as MeatOut Day to encourage a plant-based diet.
“Our Wyoming farmers and ranchers are amazing stewards of our environment. The meat they ethically produce is the best, and part of a healthy, balanced diet. It’s just downright good to eat,” Governor Gordon said. “Folks here know how important our ranching heritage is.”
Governor Gordon’s proclamation invites the citizens of Colorado to join Wyoming in its celebration of Hearty Meat Day.
“I don’t know what those folks are doing down south, but a good barbecue is a great way to enjoy a Saturday,” the Governor added.
