SHOT 10/31/10 11:57:41 AM - Overhead aerial image of farms and farm land just east of Denver near Bennett, Co. The Eastern Plains are part of the High Plains, which are the westernmost portion of the Great Plains region. The region is characterized mostly by rolling plains, divided by the South Platte River and Arkansas River valleys. Eastern Colorado is largely covered in farmland and is very agricultural, with many small farming communities. The major cash crops are corn, wheat, hay, oats, and soybeans. As well as crop farming there is also significant livestock farming, including both cattle farming and hog farming. There is also a lot of dairy farming, and, poultry farming, including chicken for meat and egg production and, turkey farming. Most of the towns in the region have grain elevators and prominent water towers. Also, over 90% of the farms in Eastern Colorado are family farms..[edit] (Photo by Marc Piscotty / © 2010)
