As Mississippi’s poultry industry has grown into a leading economic engine, a few individuals have been honored for their role in steering the industry to prominence. The latest person to be honored is Van R. Bowman of Carthage, who has spent 50 years with several companies.
The Mississippi Poultry Association inducted Bowman into its Mississippi Hall of Fame. The installation ceremony was held recently at the Hill Poultry Science Building at Mississippi State University. Bowman, who retires Dec. 31 from Peco Foods Inc., also worked for R & R Milling, Arbor Acre Farms, Green Acre Farms, Choctaw Maid Farms and Sanderson Farms in his long and distinguished career that began in 1955 while he was in high school.
