Farm Credit. He will be retiring on April 19, 2019 after almost 30

  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

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.
