Logan County Agriculture Appreciation Breakfast

For NDL

The icy cold morning of Jan. 30th didn't stop approximately 230 Logan Countians in attendance at the annual Agriculture Appreciation Breakfast.

Hosted by the Logan County Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Logan County Extension Office, participants came together to celebrate agriculture with a free breakfast of Cattlemen's ribeye steak as well as eggs, biscuits, tater tots and gravy provided by Colonial Inn Restaurant.

This year the guest speaker was Kentucky's Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles who expressed his great love and faith in Logan County and Kentucky's agriculture. He also spoke on topics such as coming from a farm family himself to the future of agriculture with Kentucky standing at the forefront in innovation.

A wide array of sponsors made the event a huge success with several of them on hand showcasing what they offer to make the lives easier for those in the agricultural community.

Congratulations to Farm Credit Mid-America for winning the country ham auction that will benefit Logan County 4H and send kids to camp this summer at a reduced rate.

The local FFA students were on hand to help serve as well.

The Chamber would like to thank the sponsors: H&R Agri-Power, H&H Sheetmetal, Champion Petfoods, Haley Realty & Auction, BB&T Bank, Hutson, Inc., Southern States Coop, Hopkinsville Elevator, Farm Credit Mid-America, Lewisburg Banking Company, Logan County Farm Bureau, Russellville Glass Company, Darling Ingredients, Moore Insurance, Logan Orthopaedics, Logan General Surgery, RJ Corman Railroad, Carr, Riggs & Ingram, Auburn Bank, Keith Batchelor-Edward Jones, Logan Telephone Coop, Logan County Conservation Districts, Danny Coffey, Security Seed, Robert L.
