Press Release

WASHINGTON—Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) today announced that Will Cabe, a fourth-generation farmer from Franklin County, will be his guest for President Donald J. Trump’s State of the Union address. 

“Since the day he was elected, President Trump has been fighting for our farmers in Georgia and all across the nation,” said Collins. “Will Cabe, a fourth-generation farmer, is the perfect example of how the president’s policies have paved the way for economic success not only for Will, but for his children, who he hopes will one day run their family farm.”

Will Cabe is the owner and operator of CABE Period, a diversified livestock operation in Red Hill, Georgia, where he is blessed to live with his wife, Heather, and their three children: sons Deacon (7) and Teller (5), and daughter Emersyn (2). The farming operation is comprised of five broiler houses, roughly 300 head of cattle, and a small herd of goats, as well as producing hay and baleage. Much of the land Will currently farms has been in the Cabe family for at least four generations, and his greatest hope is that his children can continue to farm there if they so desire. 

Will has had the opportunity to serve in many leadership positions in the Georgia Farm Bureau, Ag Georgia Farm Credit, and the Georgia Cattlemen’s Association. He also serves as a deacon at Moriah Primitive Baptist Church in Colbert, Georgia.

Just last week, President Trump signed the United States-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) trade agreement, which will strengthen the poultry industry by opening the door to new markets and hundreds of millions of dollars in added revenue. 

Last month, President Trump signed phase one of the historic trade deal between the United States and China, in which China agreed to purchase $50 billion per year in additional agriculture products, including poultry, beef and pork, and more.
