Kentucky Farm Bureau News - March 2013
The Kentucky Agricultural Council (KAC) unveiled its five year strategic plan for agriculture at a ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda that included Governor Steve Beshear, Agriculture Commissioner James Comer and the chairmen of the House and Senate Ag Committees. KFB Executive Vice President David S. Beck, who is on the KAC Board of Directors, was among a sizable group of state agricultural officials on hand to see the plan presented to the state government leaders.
Governor Beshear praised the plan and the KAC, commending the once-stagnant organization for a revitalization that has enabled it to "reclaim the mantle for agricultural planning."
