Senator David Perdue Meets With Georgia Farm Bureau President

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today met with members of the Georgia Farm Bureau and Georgia Farm Bureau President, Gerald Long.

A family farmer from Decatur County, Gerald Long was named President when his predecessor, Zippy Duvall, was named President of the American Farm Bureau Federation. He has been a member of the Farm Bureau since 1970 and previously served as the Georgia Farm Bureau South Georgia Vice President and 9th District Director, where he covered 14 counties in Southwest Georgia.

“Gerald is a wonderful representation of Georgia’s diverse agriculture community, as he farms a variety of our state’s key crops—vegetables, corn, cotton, peanuts, timber, hay, small grains, and raises cattle,” said Senator Perdue. “I applaud Gerald and Janice for taking on this incredible responsibility, and I look forward to working together. I also would like to wish outgoing President Zippy Duvall the best of luck as he serves the Farm Bureau in his new capacity.”
