Georgia Farm Bureau’s 8th District has been getting to know its new federation manager, Levi Davis, since March 7. Davis is assisting 17 county Farm Bureaus in upper Southwest Georgia with their ag promotion and membership programs. He succeeds Ken Murphree, who was named assistant director of the GFB Field Services Department last fall.
Davis is a Houston County native and attended Veterans High School. Growing up, he helped on the family beef farm. He was active in FFA and served as a Georgia FFA regional vice president for the 2013-2014 term. Davis and his wife, Amy, are actively involved in agriculture.
For the past two years, Davis worked as a GFB Mutual Insurance Company field claims representative in Grady, Mitchell and Thomas counties.
“We’re excited that Levi and Amy have transitioned to the federation side of the Georgia Farm Bureau family,” GFB President Tom McCall said. “We look forward to great things working with Levi since he has an agriculture background and Farm Bureau experience.”
Davis is a graduate of the University of Georgia College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in agribusiness. Davis also has an associate degree in agribusiness from Northeast Oklahoma A&M.
The GFB 8th District includes Clay, Crisp, Dooly, Houston, Lee, Macon, Marion, Pulaski, Quitman, Randolph, Schley, Stewart, Sumter, Terrell, Turner, Webster and Wilcox counties.
