Recognizing The Hendricks Family As The 2015 Santa Rosa County, Florida, Outstanding Farm Family Of The Year October 29, 2015
Jeff Miller, R-FL
"Mr. Speaker, it is with great pleasure that I rise to recognize the Hendricks Family from Jay, Florida, for being selected as the 2015 Santa Rosa County, Florida, Outstanding Farm Family of the Year. A fourth generation farmer, Rick Hendricks was only six years old when he first began to work on the farm alongside his father, B.D. By the age of 12, he had graduated to using a selective tractor, and as a teenager, he worked on the farm after school and athletic practices before going off to college at Livingston University. Rick played football at Livingston before his love of the farm brought him home."
Recognizing Jerry Davis As The Northwest Florida Agricultural Innovator Of The Year October 29, 2015
Jeff Miller, R-FL
"Mr. Speaker, it is with great pleasure that I rise to recognize Mr. Jerry Davis from Florida’s First Congressional District, for being selected as the Northwest Florida Agricultural Innovator of the Year. Jerry’s love of farming derives from his childhood, when he helped grow soybeans and wheat on his family’s farm. Since the beginning, Jerry has been an innovator in the agricultural arena. By the time he was 20, he designed a seed conditioning plant to clean and bag seed for planting. In 1987, he became involved in the testing of a crop simulation model developed by scientists in USDA’s Agricultural Research Services and Mississippi State and Clemson Universities. The model allowed participants to optimize inputs in relation to weather, nitrogen, moisture stress, crop maturity, growth resultants, and harvest aid materials. As a result of this innovative project, Jerry and the other participating growers saw net profits on test fields increase by more than $30 per acre. In the late 1990s, Jerry began expanding his farming operation from Santa Rosa County to Escambia County in Florida and Baldwin and Hale counties in Alabama. At the time, he was the only peanut grower in Hale and one of the first in Baldwin. Similarly, he was one of the first farmers to grow 30-inch twin row peanuts and use grid sampling and precision agriculture to perfect his technique over thousands of acres."
