[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E367] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] HONORING LOYD RUTHERFORD OF MOULTON, ALABAMA ______ HON. ROBERT B. ADERHOLT of alabama in the house of representatives Thursday, March 28, 2019 Mr. ADERHOLT. Madam Speaker, I want to acknowledge the lifetime of service Mr. Loyd Rutherford of Moulton, Alabama has given to the farm community in our nation and the difference he has made in countless lives. Mr. Rutherford currently serves on the board of directors for Alabama Farm Credit. He will be retiring on April 19, 2019 after almost 30 years of service to the board. In addition to this longevity on the board, he has served as Chairman of the Board for almost the same length of time, taking that title in 1995. He held that title until 2017. In addition to Mr. Rutherford's service to the state of Alabama, he has also served other parts of our nation. He served on the District Benefits Administrative Committee for the Farm Credit Bank of Texas. Rutherford also worked on the Farm Credit Benefit Alliance plan sponsor committee, which services both AgFirst Bank and the Farm Credit Bank of Texas, the Tenth District Farm Credit Council Board, the National Farm Credit Council board, and the Farm Credit Council Services Board. Mr. Rutherford retired from working 32 years with a local cooperative in Alabama. He is currently the owner and operator of JRL Inc., a construction and development company in Moulton, Alabama. He also farms cotton, soybeans, cattle and broilers. I want to commend Mr. Rutherford for his service, especially his time serving Alabama Farm Credit. The organization has helped an untold number of farmers, especially those just getting started in the business, to realize their dreams of making a career out of helping to feed America. He is married to Janice and they have three children, Jeffrey, Regina and Tanya, eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. I am happy to congratulate Mr. Rutherford and I wish him all the best in his well- earned retirement from the Alabama Farm Credit Board of Directors. I know his leadership and knowledge will be greatly missed. ____________________
