Clay Talton has been named director of the Georgia Farm Bureau Field Services Department.

A native of Houston County, Talton graduated from the University of Georgia College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in animal and dairy science with a minor in agribusiness; he earned his master’s degree in animal science from UGA in 2006.

“Clay is energetic, has broad knowledge of agriculture and is committed to the mission of Georgia Farm Bureau,” GFB President Tom McCall said.

Talton worked as a UGA Cooperative Extension Agent prior to his work with GFB, which began in 2014 when he was hired as GFB’s District 2 federation manager. He became assistant director of Field Services in 2017.

Clay and his wife, Brittany, live in Monroe County with their three children, Lola (age 14), Cohen (10) and Nora (4).

Talton succeeds Dennis Black, who retired on Sept. 3 after working 25 years with GFB.
