Georgia Farm Bureau President Visits SPGC

spgc-15-zippyThe president of the Georgia Farm Bureau visited the Southern Peanut Growers Conference this year for the first time, appropriately since it was held in his state for the first time.

“I’m with the peanut growers of Georgia and they are very dear to my heart,” said Zippy Duvall in an interview at the conference. “We’re number one in peanuts across the country and we’re very proud of that.”

Duvall recently announced his intention to run for president of the American Farm Bureau Federation next year as current president Bob Stallman is retiring. “I’m just so passionate about agriculture and I think I can bring that to the table,” said Duvall. “The other thing I can bring to the table is that I’m really good at building bridges and relationships and I think everything in life is accomplished through relationships.”

There have been AFBF presidents from South Carolina and Virginia but not from the lower Southeast and Duvall is hoping to be the first.
