MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- The 90th anniversary meeting of the Alabama Farmers Federation starting Sunday in Mobile will feature Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
Federation President Jerry Newby says Bentley will speak Sunday afternoon and Huckabee will address the group Monday night. Huckabee finished first in Alabama's Republican presidential primary in 2008. Newby said Huckabee's conservative values still resonate with Alabamians.
The federation will also present its highest honor, the Service to Agriculture Award, to U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers of Saks.
