RFD-TV PROGRAM TO FEATURE STATE FARMERS
MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Innovative Alabama farming operations will be featured on national television Wednesday, Oct. 10, 5:30 p.m. CDT, when RFD-TV airs a 30-minute program produced by the Alabama Farmers Federation.
The show, one of two produced this year in Alabama as part of the Farm Bureau Today weekly series, will be repeated several times during the week after its initial broadcast (check local listings).
The program, produced by Federation Broadcast Director Kevin Worthington, will examine an operation that features custom weaning of beef calves and the 2007 Alabama Farm of Distinction, owned by Billy and Terri Gilley of Cullman County.
The program will also feature three stories familiar to readers of Neighbors magazine: Andy and Wae Ellis' Cherokee County business which converts gin trash to mulch, a profile of J.C. Carnley of Opp, who's still farming at 100 and a new 'raceway' at Butch Wilson's Dallas County catfish pond.
