CHIEFLAND, Fla. – Representative Matt Caldwell continued his statewide #2LaneTravels Work Days Tour at Usher Land and Timber’s cattle ranch, out with their logging crews, and at the Suwannee Lumber Company’s mill and manufacturing facility, in order to highlight and showcase the industries he would oversee as Commissioner of Agriculture.
As a part of his #2LaneTravels Work Days, Caldwell will work at Florida businesses that are vital to Florida’s economy. Usher Land and Timber is a family business of generational land owners, loggers, and cattle producers in Chiefland, Florida. Usher Land & Timber cattle operations participates in all phases of the cattle industry, from conception to consumption. The company’s timber operations deliver various wood products to six different mills in North Florida. One of those mills, Suwanee Lumber Company, was founded in 1954 and currently operates an impressive 150 million board foot sawmill operation on Florida’s Gulf of Mexico in Cross City, Florida.
Representative Caldwell said, “It was exciting to work alongside cattlemen, logging crews and timber operations teams. As we continue to highlight important jobs throughout our statewide travels, these work opportunities will help me lead in Tallahassee on day one and champion ag-related issues that are vital to economic growth and prosperity in our state. The hard work done in the timber, cattle, and logging industries is vital to our state’s economy and I am thrilled to highlight a part of Florida that most people don’t see.”
