**Florida Farm Bureau will celebrate Florida agriculture and football with two premier Ag Day celebrations this fall.

The Home Field AGvantage celebrations will kick-off September 4th at the University of Florida vs. Florida Atlantic game.

The celebration will continue at the Florida State vs. Louisville game September 25th.

These inaugural tailgate events are free and will provide fans a complete interactive agriculture experience with different products grown around the Sunshine State.

Other highlights include live music, food samples and family-friendly activities.


**The ethanol industry can overcome two recent adverse court decisions, but it will take legislative and regulatory actions to do so.

www.agriculture.com reports, the rulings, one from the Supreme Court and one from the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, deal with extending small refinery exemptions of ethanol blending requirements and the summertime sale of gas with a 15% blend of ethanol.

Renewable Fuels Association President Geoff Cooper says our outlook remains bright, despite what the headlines and our opponents would like us to believe.


**Dr. Janemarie Hennebelle has been appointed as Georgia’s next State Veterinarian, succeeding Dr. Robert Cobb, who retired last month.

According to www.morningagclips.com, Hennebelle has served as Assistant State Veterinarian since 2016.

Hennebelle will oversee the Animal Health Division of the

Georgia Department of Ag while managing staff veterinarians, and animal disease investigations as they arise.
