Trey Davis

Trey Davis, ABAC’s current farm manager, is a native of Ocilla, GA. and began attending ABAC in 2002. While at ABAC, Davis received his Associate of Science in Agriculture Engineering Technologies and then received his Bachelors of Science in Agriculture Environmental Systems from UGA-Tifton campus.

Like many, Davis says ABAC’s beautiful campus was one of the main reasons for him choosing ABAC, as well as the agricultural aspects of ABAC and professors that go above and beyond just teaching in the classroom. Not only do ABAC professors love what they do, it shows while they are teaching. Davis said he would often see his agriculture professors on campus after hours helping students with different club activities.

Davis was very active in ABAC’s Ag Engineering Club (AET) and his favorite spot on campus was the AET shop. Davis was actually not a member of the Wildlife and Forestry Club, but came if they needed help, like at the Buckarama or Turkey Rama, and also served as a senator with ABAC’s Student Government Association (SGA).

His favorite events at ABAC were the truck and tractor pulls because of his participation with AET and he also enjoyed Stallion basketball games. Overall, Davis says his experience at ABAC was a positive one and ABAC helped fine-tune the direction he wanted to go in life and in a career.

As ABAC’s current farm manager, Davis oversees the production side of the farm and helps with different classes that are taught at the farm. He enjoys taking the classroom side of teaching and connecting it with hands-on experience at the farm. Davis brags about the great staff working at the farm and says the coolest thing about his job is being able to do what he loves and relaying it to students on a daily basis.

Davis is relatively new to ABAC’s Alumni Council and believes that it is important to be involved with this council to continue to help ABAC grow and prosper.

In ten or more years Davis expects ABAC to have grown immensely and to be thriving even more than it is currently. Advice Davis would give to any freshmen or upperclassmen would be to take classes seriously, take advantage of any meetings or internships available, and make your face known to others because agriculture is such a competitive field.

Davis says, “One future employer may not remember you after one meeting, but if you continue to come to meetings, that same future employer will then remember you and recognize the same ambition they once had in you.” According to Davis, Tifton is the epicenter of agriculture and there are plenty of opportunities for our students to meet important people in the agriculture industry.
