Georgia Farm Bureau

Georgia Farm Bureau teamed up with Georgia Southern University to celebrate agriculture at the 2nd Annual Georgia Ag Game held Nov. 4 as the Georgia Southern Eagles played the Georgia State University Panthers at Paulson Stadium in Statesboro.

GFB 1st Vice President Robert Fountain Jr. represented GFB as a presenting sponsor of the event during the game. Ga. Rep. Jan Tankersley (R-Dist. 160) was recognized for serving on the Georgia House Agriculture Committee, and Low Country Machinery President/CEO Chris Shea was recognized as an event sponsor.

Special thanks to Bulloch and Effingham County Farm Bureaus for manning a booth to interact with fans and to local 4-H & FFA students for passing out GFB ag game rally rags. The Statesboro-Bulloch Chamber of Commerce Agribusiness Committee provided a corn sheller for kids to enjoy.

At halftime, fans enjoyed a video featuring local farmers Speer Brannen, Will Ball and Blake Edenfield and their poultry, cattle and row crop farms. All three are Farm Bureau members and Georgia Southern graduates.
