CONFERENCE TO FOCUS ON AG ENERGY SOLUTIONS
The Alabama Farmers Federation, along with the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs and other agricultural groups, is sponsoring the second annual Alabama Agriculture Energy Conference Nov. 9. The one-day conference will be at the Auburn University Hotel and Dixon Conference Center and begins at 8 a.m.
"With the soaring costs of energy, this conference is more important than ever to our farmers," said Federation Commodity Director Jimmy Carlisle. "Farmers are eager to find ways to conserve energy and are equally interested in exploring the use of alternative, renewable fuels that may be better for the environment."
In addition to alternative fuels, topics for the conference include agriculture's role in energy production, biofuel initiatives in Alabama and energy-saving solutions for row crop, aquaculture and poultry producers.
Registration prior to Oct. 26 is $30. Forms are available on the Alfa Farmers' website at www.AlfaFarmers.org. For more information, contact Kathy Hornsby of ADECA's Science, Technology and Energy Division, at 334-242-5284 or e-mail email@example.com. Other conference sponsors include the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, the Alabama Poultry & Egg Association and the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries.
