The program assists with personal and professional development in the areas of agricultural policy, industry leadership and organizational involvement.
Selected for this year's class were Kevin and Rachel Holland of Baldwin County, Clay Scofield of Blount County, Troy Tindal of Butler County, Jon Hegeman of Calhoun County, Bradley Stewart of Clay County, Monica Carroll of Dale County, Jay Minter of Dallas County, Toby McCormick of DeKalb County, Scott Poague of Elmore County, Deana Mann of Madison County, Corey Hill of Marshall County, Hassey Brooks and Trey Flowers of Montgomery County, Kelly Pritchett of Pike County and Jeremie Redden of Russell County.
"The inaugural A.L.F.A class graduated in December and was recognized during our annual meeting," said Federation Young Farmers Director Brandon Moore, who directs the program along with Federation Commodity Department staff member Mitt Walker. "Participants have told us the training and experiences during the two-year program have been invaluable. They learned skills they can use not just on their farm and in our organization, but within their communities and the entire agricultural industry."
