Logan County’s Annual Agriculture Appreciation Breakfast is approaching Jan. 27 at 7 a.m. and Logan Chamber Executive Director Ryan Craig wants to formally invite all those in our agricultural community to come out and enjoy their day. The breakfast is being held at the Logan County Extension Office.
“To say we are excited about our upcoming Annual Agriculture Appreciation Breakfast is an understatement,” said Craig. “First, there is food. Great food that will fill your belly on a cold January morning. Then, there is a great opportunity to gather together and network with the leaders in the Logan County Agriculture and Agribusiness community. Most of all, though, you want to be at our annual breakfast for one big, important reason — Warren Beeler will be there!”
Beeler, just last Friday, was named as the Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Agriculture Policy. Beeler has worked for the Kentucky Department of Agriculture for the past 16 years, most recently as Director of Agriculture Policy.
“Warren is a respected agricultural leader known throughout the Commonwealth, and I am excited to have him as executive director of our office of agricultural policy,” said Gov. Matt Bevin in a press release. “The Kentucky Agricultural Development Fund is critical to the Commonwealth’s agriculture and rural economic development, and we are excited to have Warren leading this effort.”
The release also noted that Beeler is a graduate of Western Kentucky University and lives in Caneyville with his wife, DeeDee.
Beeler has also served as the state Director of Livestock Marketing, Director of the Shows and Fairs Division, and Livestock Marketing Specialist. Before joining the state Department of Agriculture, he served as an Agriculture Extension Specialist at the University of Kentucky where he helped develop the first on-farm testing program for swine in Kentucky.
Director Beeler will be speaking at the Agriculture Appreciation Breakfast about “The Future of Kentucky Agriculture,” and you don’t want to miss it.
Also, the Logan County Cattlemen’s Association will be cooking steaks and Colonial Inn will be providing the eggs and other fixins.
If you would like to come to the breakfast, please call 270-726-2206 or email [email protected] and let us know if you are coming and how many you are bringing. There is no cost to attend.
“We want a big crowd to celebrate Logan County and its producers,” said Craig.
