Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler sits down each week with Southern Farm Network’s Mike Davis to discuss “Today’s Topic.”

Two turkeys from North Carolina have made their way up to Washington D.C. to be presented to President Trump and his wife. They are from Wellie Jackson’s farm in Clinton. The Butterball grower was selected by the National Turkey Federation for the honor.  Commissioner Troxler was recently on hand for the turkeys’ send-off and talks about the economic impact of our state’s turkey industry.
