As a lead up to the second annual Poudre Pour, the Poudre Heritage Alliance will again be presenting a series of educational pub talks at local breweries throughout Northern Colorado. For the January 12th Pub Talk at Soul Squared Brewing, ‎Zach Thode–a local cattle rancher from Livermore–will discuss how irrigation technology benefits local communities and economies.

Zach is a native of Livermore, working on ranches in this rural community in Northern Colorado from elementary through college. Zach graduated from Colorado State University, with a degree in agricultural engineering. After college, he found work as a construction laborer and advanced to management, spending six years engaged in the construction of municipal water treatment facilities across Colorado and Wyoming. For another five years, Thode worked for Rubicon Water, a firm that designs large scale, gravity-fed irrigation water systems. Zach now manages a large cattle ranch in Livermore, while also continuing in Graduate school, representing the BigIron Auction company, and free-lance consulting. A wife and 4 young children keep Zach focused on the future.
