Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich is giving the keynote address at an annual gathering of Alabama farmers.

The Alabama Farmers Federation is holding its 97th annual meeting Sunday and Monday in Montgomery.

Gingrich will address the group Monday night.

The Alabama Farmers Federation says that over 1,200 farmers and guests have registered for the meeting. It is one of the state’s largest gatherings of farmers.

Federation President Jimmy Parnell said McMillan set a “new tone for the services that office would provide.” He also praised McMillan’s opposition to property tax increase.
