Benton Felts, president, and Heath Adkisson, resolutions chair and vice president, welcomed everyone and thanked them for participating in the resolution process.

"We want to offer a thank you to Dr. Fred Bourland for allowing us to meet here, Home Oil for donating the door prizes, and everyone for participation," Felts said.

Past Mississippi County Farm Bureau presidents attending were recognized.

Mark Bryles also recognized two men, Mike Sullivan, elected to the state board, and Randy Veach, state president, for their service.

"They are good spokesmen for agriculture," Bryles said. "They do a great job."

Following the welcome and meal, individual committees met to discuss resolutions. All resolutions with state and national concerns, if approved, will be forward to the Arkansas Farm Bureau for further consideration.

Chairman for the different committees included Todd Edwards, cotton; Jeff Lammers, rice; Benton Felts, soybeans; Brandon Veach, wheat and F. grains; David Wildy, national affairs; Larry Hellums, state affairs; Dino Pirani, local affairs; Lowry Robinson, research and extension.

The executive committee will review the proposed resolutions for further action.
