Alabama Farmers Bulletin 2020 Details

Alabama Farmers Bulletin is a well-known publication that provides farmers with information about recent developments in agriculture, such as the latest innovations and techniques to help them farm more efficiently. The Alabama Farmers Bulletin also offers news and commentary on current events in farming, including policy changes and legislation that affect their business. For those who work or live near farms, this blog can offer helpful advice for living alongside agricultural operations. The Alabama Farmers Bulletin was founded by Dr. Robert Lacy Bellamy in 1907 to promote better farming practices among Southern cotton growers after he noticed how quickly they were adopting new technology from Northern states like Iowa where he had been teaching at the State Agricultural College of Iowa (now known as Iowa State University).

MCMILLAN HONORED

BY GROCERS

The Alabama Grocers Association presented Alabama Agriculture and Industries Commissioner John McMillan with its Spirit of Alabama award at its annual convention in late July.

The award, which was presented by Alabama Grocers Association President Ellie Smotherman Taylor, is given in honor of McMillan’s support of food safety, the food industry and for his support of products grown, manufactured and processed in Alabama.

McMillan is a six-generation Alabama native with roots in Baldwin County. His life’s work has centered on agri-business, forest products, wildlife protection, natural resource management and the protection of personal property rights. From 1974-1982, he served in the Alabama House of Representatives and chaired the Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resource Committee before serving as executive vice president of the Alabama Forestry Association for over 20 years. In November, he was elected to the post he now

Great taste and outstanding nutritional values make BlueMoon products rare as a blue moon! Whole anti-oxidant

rich berries, handpicked at peak lavor are the key

ingredient in all BlueMoon products. Herbs, spices and

vegetables are chosen for their health beneits and taste. Artiicial preservatives

are never used. BlueMoon’s goal is to deliver the highest possible quality products for your family’s nutrition and enjoyment.

BlueMoon Blueberries was established last year to provide the emerging Alabama blueberry industry with an outlet for those berries not suitable for the fresh market.

Blueberry Chipolte Sauce has been its best seller at farmer’s markets and festivals. Designed as a grilling sauce, it is being used as a topping for salads, cream cheese, meats, and ice cream (yep—that’s true— try it at The River Nile in

Dothan). It gives a little kick to your meal; a unique lavor

you will come back for. BlueMoon’s Blueberry

Bar-B-Que Sauce has

received rave reviews from those barbecue aicionados

looking for something a little different on anything from chicken to steak. All natural ingredients make it a healthy selection.

The Blueberry Dessert Topping isn’t just limited to ice cream and cheesecakes.

It is also great poured on pancakes and wafles. It also

turns a plain smoothie into an exciting blueberry treat.

Actually BlueMoon’s irst product was Blueberry

Juice. Unlike most blueberry juices on the market today, its

juice contains real blueberry juice as the irst ingredient

with a hint of agave nectar for sweetening and water. BlueMoon has heard it makes a good bluemosa when added to champagne and is a great ingredient for a Blutini. But it is great straight, over the rocks, for a real cooler duringAlabama’s hot summers.

The Spirit of Alabama award was established in 2006 to honor those who support the Alabama Grocers Association and have commitment to the State of Alabama food industry. The association is a state trade group representing the grocery retail industry.

Feral/wild swine population is growing at an alarming rate in Alabama. They destroy native plants and habitats, create erosion problems, degrade water quality and compete with native wildlife for food. In addition, they can cause massive crop damage, transmit diseases to domestic livestock, and adversely affect timber production through destruction of seedlings and young trees. Feral swine have been sighted in most of the 67 counties in Alabama and can reproduce at an alarming rate. Sows can begin breeding at 6 months of age, and produce up to four litters per year with each litter consisting of four to twelve piglets.

Alabama landowners have an opportunity to receive inancial and technical

assistance through the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service’s (NRCS) Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP) and the Environmental Quality

Incentives Program (EQIP) to trap and properly dispose of feral/wild swine. For more information, contact your local NRCS ofice listed in the telephone book under U.S. Department of Agriculture or online at http://ofices.sc.egov.usda.gov.

General program information is available on the Alabama NRCS website at www. al.nrcs.usda.gov/programs.
