Lexington Hosts Ag Leadership Conference For First Time
Agricultural leaders from all over the globe recently congregated in Lexington for their annual meeting regarding fundraising, programming, speakers and travel. The annual meeting is for the network of people to exchange ideas. “The value with helping all the ag programs is there are so few people involved in production agriculture these days. The people who are making the decisions about agriculture, a lot of them don’t know anything about agriculture,” said Joe Waldrum, association’s executive secretary and interim assistant director of community and economic development in the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture.
