  • WOULD LIKE TO THANK OUR SPONSOR FOR THEIR

    SUPPORT AND CONTRIBUTION TO THE MISSISSIPPI ASSOCIATION OF

    COUNTY AGRICULTURAL AGENTS

    rangeandpasture.dupont.com

    We rely so much on corporate sponsorship in so many aspects of our Educational Programs and Research in the Mississippi State University Extension Service. It is refreshing to see DuPont Corporation continuing to support the Mississippi Association of County Agricultural Agents throughout the years. We want to show our appreciation not only in our Program Book, but I encourage each of you to thank a DuPont Representative for their support of the Farmers and Ranchers who use these products. It takes all of us working together to help the Agricultural Industry to thrive and help clothe and feed our nation. Sincerely, Jimbo Burkhalter President of MACAA 2013
