Live from New Orleans
We're about halfway through the American Farm Bureau Federation's Annual Meeting in New Orleans, and so far it's been a pretty good trip for our Alabama Young Farmers delegation. Our state's member on the AFBF Young Farmers and Ranchers Committee, Townsend Kyzer, has been elected to serve as that committee's national chairman. Chris and Monica Carroll, our Outstanding Young Farm Family, are among the "top ten" finalists for the Achievement Award (winner will be announced this afternoon). Other than that, it's been several good informational meetings, good fellowship, and good food! The business session will be all day tomorrow and then Wednesday morning, and I hope to be back on the farm by late Wednesday afternoon.
