Cowboy Ethics is a set of simple, timeless principles that make up the “Code of the West.” The principles are based on how the heroic, courageous American Cowboy lived his life. Cowboy Ethics and the “Code of the West” were envisioned and composed into a book by Jim Owen. His message is that “we can all be heroes in our own lives.”
The Colorado 4-H Foundation received grants from the Daniels Fund, Anschutz Family Foundation and El Pomar Foundation to implement the 4-H Cowboy Ethics program.
Encana Corporation is also supporting the Cowboy Ethics program in Weld, Larimer, Rio Blanco, Mesa and Garfield counties. More information about Encana is available at Encana’s Website
