The Raftopoulos name has been synonymous with Moffat County ranching for almost a century. The family is best known for its connection to the sheep industry. But on March 31, John Raftopoulos, 60, of Raftopoulos Ranches, was recognized as the 2011 Promoter of the Year by the Colorado Angus Association for his ability to raise some of the best performing, high-altitude Angus cattle in Colorado. Raftopoulos Ranches expanded into the commercial and registered Angus seed stock business 10 years ago.
