Coffee County Farm Bureau Young Farmers & Ranchers (YF&R) Committee Chairman Walt Pridgen is serving on the 2020 Georgia Farm Bureau YF&R Committee.


This is the first year of a two-year term on the committee for Pridgen, who manages 11 poultry houses, grows hay and raises cattle as a part of a collaborative farm with his father, Jeffrey, and uncles Derek and Marshall. Walt is president of South Georgia Cattlemen, speaks to other organizations to promote agriculture and volunteers as a judge for area FFA events. He has a bachelor’s degree in diversified agriculture from Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.


On the committee, Pridgen represents the GFB 10th District, which includes Farm Bureaus in Atkinson, Bacon, Ben Hill, Berrien, Brantley, Camden, Charlton, Clinch, Coffee, Cook, Echols, Glynn, Irwin, Lanier, Lowndes, Pierce and Ware counties.


The committee oversees GFB’s young farmer and rancher activities, including the GFB YF&R Discussion Meet, Achievement Award and Excellence in Agriculture competitive events, the Picture Georgia in Agriculture Photo Contest and the Harvest for All Campaign.


The GFB Young Farmers & Ranchers program is designed to provide leadership development, educational and social opportunities for farmers between the ages of 18 and 35.
