MONTGOMERY Phillip A. Slay, a sheep and cattle farmer from Chambers County, was elected chairman of the Alabama Farmers Federation's State Young Farmers Committee at the organization's 78th annual meeting Dec. 5-6 in Mobile.

Slay and wife Kim own and manage a 170-head beef cattle herd and a 100-head club lamb flock in the Five Points community, where the Slay family has farmed for six generations.

As State Young Farmers chairman, Slay will serve a one-year term as an ex-officio member of the Alabama Farmers Federation's state board of directors. Slay has served on the State Young Farmers Committee for four years and was vice chairman in 1999. The Slays also were recognized in 1995 as the state's Outstanding Young Farm Family.

A 1988 graduate of Auburn University, Slay serves as chairman of the Alabama 4-H Lamb Advisory Committee, chief of the Five Points Volunteer Fire Department and is a founding member and president of the Piedmont Cattle Marketing Association.

Other State Young Farmers Committee members and officers elected at the annual meeting included David Phillips of Clay County, vice chairman; Jeanie Bragg Harvey of Madison County, member and secretary/reporter; Bob Luker of Talladega County, member; Jay Minter of Dallas County, member; Chris Carroll of Dale County, member; and John Curry Key of Pike County, member.
