Yesterday, Georgia Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall was elected to become the next president of the American Farm Bureau Federation at it’s 97th annual meeting in Orlando, FL.  From the Southern Farm Press:

“This election is not about policy. It’s about the style of leadership you want,”Duvall told the delegates. “I’m going to get up every day and work hard. We are the strength and the hope for this country and all around the world because we will provide the nourishment.

“There’s no human right more precious than the right to eat. We should be proud to be American agriculture,” he added.

Duvall will succeed outgoing AFBF President Bob Stallman from Texas who has served since 2000.  Agriculture is still a large component of our state’s economy (a $72 billion contributor according to statistics found from the Georgia Farm Bureau).  We wish President Duvall well and hope his leadership will lend to the growth of the agriculture industry.
