The Arkansas Farm Bureau 82nd Annual Convention was held
in Hot Springs last week.
It's always great to connect with other Arkansas farmers and ranchers
to share information and celebrate the activities
that have occurred during the year.
The conference theme "Our Common Ground" was a perfect fit.
I'm thankful for the many Farm Bureau contests like Sew With Cotton
that highlight commodities raised in Arkansas and provide
opportunities for competition and learning for 4-H members,
for the grassroots policy developed by the members of Farm Bureau,
for the many volunteer opportunities allowing me to contribute
and work with others to benefit our communities across Arkansas.
