MCGAUGHY RETIRES AFTER 30 YEARS WITH FARMERS FEDERATION
"Jeff Helms, Publications Director"
334 613-4212

MONTGOMERY Luther Jackson (Jack) McGaughy will retire Feb. 1 after almost 30 years as a commodity director with the Alabama Farmers Federation.

McGaughy, who served as director for three divisions -- pork, horticulture, and greenhouse, nursery and sod -- began his career with the Farmers Federation in 1970. He counts establishment of the Swine Nutrition Unit at Auburn University and passage of a $52 million agricultural bond issue in 1998 among the greatest accomplishments of the Alabama Pork Producers under his leadership.

"I appreciate all the producers who I have worked with over the years allowing me to serve them. Because of their hard work and commitment to research, I feel the future for agriculture is bright," McGaughy said.

Prior to joining the Farmers Federation staff, McGaughy worked as a county extension agent in Dothan and an agribusiness teacher in the Pike County town of Goshen.

A graduate of Auburn University with a degree in agriculture education, McGaughy served as a pilot in the United States Air Force from 1955-1959. He later joined the U.S. Army National Guard as an aviator and continued to serve until his retirement in 1988 as a full colonel. McGaughy earned his masters degree in horticulture from Auburn University in 1968 while working as an extension agent.

A native of Montevallo, McGaughy is married to the former Kathleen Slawson of Barbour County. They have two daughters, Debra Coleman and Alecia Muller, and six grandchildren.
