“Western Kentucky produces the majority of Kentucky’s row crops,” Commissioner Comer said. “It’s also a place where you can find innovative farm operations and an active business community. I’m looking forward to visiting with farmers, business leaders, and constituents to find out what’s on their minds and how the Kentucky Department of Agriculture can help their communities grow and prosper.”
Commissioner Comer will speak at the Kentucky Soybean Association meeting in Princeton and the Farm to Table Dinner in Paducah on Tuesday, and the Paducah Chamber of Commerce Breakfast on Thursday. His speaking schedule also includes luncheons in Mayfield today and in Murray on Thursday and an FFA event in Hickman County on Thursday. He will host constituent meetings in Eddyville on Tuesday and in Bardwell on Wednesday.
Commissioner Comer’s tour includes stops in 13 western Kentucky counties. Comer visited all 120 Kentucky counties in his first year as agriculture commissioner in 2012 and is on track to repeat the feat this year.
