Why one Alabama town erects monuments to the boll weevil

If you can't beat 'em, raise a statue in their honor!

A century ago, cotton farmers in Enterprise, Ala., faced disaster when their crops were wiped out by the pest. Rather than accept defeat, the farmers switched to growing peanuts, and now the town celebrates coming back stronger.

Be vigilant and educate yourself about avian influenza.
06/02/2022

Be vigilant and educate yourself about avian influenza.

The Georgia Department of Agriculture (GDA) and the U.S. Department of Agricultureโ€™s Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA APHIS) have confirmed Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) in a non-commercial, backyard flock (non-poultry) located in Toombs County, Georgia. This is the first confirmation of HPAI in Georgia. Avian influenza does not pose a risk to the food supply, and no affected animals entered the food chain. The risk of human infection with avian influenza is very low.

โ€œPoultry is the top sector of our number one industry, agriculture, and we are committed to protecting the livelihoods of the many farm families that are dependent on it,โ€ said Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture Gary W. Black. โ€œIn order to successfully do that, it is imperative that we continue our efforts of extensive biosecurity.โ€

Poultry flock owners are encouraged to closely observe their birds and report a sudden increase in the number of sick birds or bird deaths to the Avian Influenza Hotline at 770-766-6850. For more updates and information regarding biosecurity tips visit:

Big boy tomato plants over 11 feet tall now and still producing. Good rain all season
Georgia needs a rabbit processing facility. There are a lot of rabbit producers in Ga. without a place to process. Could you look into this please?
