At 24 years of age, State Senator Garrett Love (R – Montezuma) was named chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee for the upcoming legislative session.

The Agriculture Committee deals with mostly farm and water issues. Agriculture is the #1 industry in Kansas. Approximately 90% of Kansas land is for agricultural use, and the state ranks high in wheat, grain sorghum and silage production. Kansas also is a leader in beef production, with more than 19 percent of all U.S. beef originating from Kansas beef processing facilities. The state ranks third in cattle and calves on farms and third in cattle and calves on grain feed.

“My family has farmed in western Kansas for 6 generations. We grow wheat, corn, milo, and soybeans. We also background calves and have a small cow-calf operation,” said Love. “Agriculture is a passion of mine and is very important to western Kansas, so I am pleased to be serving in this position.”

In addition to serving as Ag Chairman, Love was also recently elected to be part of the Senate leadership team as the Majority Whip.
