The Louisiana Agriculture Hall of Distinction is a joint effort of the LSU AgCenter, Louisiana Radio Network and the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry and is designed to honor individuals who have made significant contributions to agriculture or agriculture-related industries. Nominations can represent farming, ranching, forestry, aquaculture, fisheries, education or agribusiness.
This is the second year for the hall of distinction program. Last year, Dennis Aucoin, a logger from Clinton, Clarence Berken, a rice farmer from Lake Arthur, and the late Ellis S. Martin, a forester from Alexandria, were the inductees.
