    Mar 26, 2018
    The Rice Leadership Development Program toured the LSU AgCenter H. Rouse Caffey Rice Research Station and visited a crawfish farming operation on March 22. The group was treated to crawfish at the farm of Christian and Julie Richard the previous night. At the station, the group learned about the ongoing research activities conducted there. One of the presentations was made by a member of the leadership class, Adam Famoso, a rice breeder at the station. The group toured the Crowley plant of JohnPac, which makes woven bags for rice and other products worldwide, and rode on a crawfish boat at the Zaunbrecher Brothers Farm near Rayne.
