BROOKS CO., GA (WALB) - The University of Georgia's President now has a better idea of how UGA works to support agriculture in South Georgia.

Dr. Jere Morehead toured the Brooks County Dairy farm Wednesday morning along with Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black as part of a statewide agricultural tour.

Morehead said he learned so much about the university's connection to agriculture throughout the state on last year's agricultural tour that he wanted to do a second tour this year.

"I'm learning once again how UGA and the agriculture industry of this state are so intertwined," Morehead stated. "It's been terrific."

The group also made stops at Langboard Lumber in Brooks County and the MANA plant in Fitzgerald.
