Gov. Kay Ivey this week appointed Chambers County farmer Chris Langley to the Alabama Forestry Commission, pending Senate confirmation.
Langley is a member of the Chambers County Farmers Federation board of directors. He and wife Elizabeth won the 2017 Farm of Distinction contest and represented Alabama in the Southeastern Farmer of the Year competition at the Sunbelt Ag Expo.
He owns Chris Langley Timber and Management Inc., in Camp Hill, which operates three fully mechanized logging crews. Langley Farms includes a 320-cow commercial beef herd on 2,650 acres of timber, hay and grazing land. In 2019, Langley served as the 75th president of the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association.
Langley is expected to be confirmed as early as next week.
