MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A fifth-generation Chilton County farmer has been elected president of the Alabama Farmers Federation.
Officials Monday announced Jimmy Parnell, of Stanton, will serve a 2-year term as president.
Officials say 48-year-old Parnell served on the organization's board of directors between 1999 and 2008, and was chairman of the group's Young Farmers Committee in 1997.
Parnell raises cattle and runs a timber business with his father and two younger brothers. He was named logger of the year by the Alabama Forestry Association in 2006.
Parnell graduated from Auburn University in 1985 with a bachelor's degree in agricultural business and economics. He replaces Jerry Newby, who retired after 14 years as president.
The Alabama Farmers Foundation was founded in 1921 and is the state's largest farm organization with more than 400,000 members.
