On Thursday, January 14th 2016 Dr. Roger Kounga, (ACBC President) and Victoria Senome, (Member) organized and collaborated the attendance of 6 African Ambassadors to the 100th Pennsylvania Farm Show held at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, PA. We were pleased that the Agriculture Secretary Russell C. Redding made time to meet the delegation. Much gratitude was expressed towards Thomas Mainzer III (Agricultural Trade Specialist, Bureau of Market Development) for facilitating this meeting. We are glad to still be in communication with Mr Mainzer.
The Ambassadors expressed incredible interest in Pennsylvania livestock, poultry and horticulture. To this day, inquiries are still being made on how to further engage with the State to further emulate successful farm practices, especially in cattle production, training and improvement of agricultural productivity.
