Congressman Robert Aderholt

Representing the 4th District of Alabama

Agriculture

Farmers are essential to the economy of North Alabama; specifically, agriculture and related industries yield nearly $19 billion a year to the economic impact of Alabama’s 4th Congressional District. Crops, livestock, timber, and fisheries produce a varied agricultural landscape and culture in the district. Furthermore, these industries contribute to the State of Alabama’s $77 billion output impact.

I am honored to serve on the House Appropriations Subcommitee on Agriculture, where I can do my part to help ensure that farming continues to feed Alabama, America and world.
