“The American Farm Bureau Federation is honored to host our nation’s president,” said AFBF President Zippy Duvall, a beef and poultry farmer from Georgia. “President Trump has said all along that he would make sure agriculture has a seat at the table when it comes to the top issues facing America’s farmers and ranchers. Now, it is our privilege to reserve a spot for him at our podium.”
The annual convention for the American Farm Bureau will be held from Jan 6-10 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center and is slated to include more than 7,000 farmers, suppliers, and industry leaders in the agriculture industry. This will be Trump's second visit to Tenn. after taking office in 2017. This will also be the first president to address the AFBF convention since George H.W. Bush in the 90's.
“Farmers and ranchers and our rural communities are the bedrock of our nation. President Trump knows that, and his willingness to devote his time to talk directly with Farm Bureau members will be a memorable occasion,” Duvall said.
