Mr. David M. Benefield

Welcome to Cullman High School Agriscience/FFA!!!!!  This is my 27th year teaching and I genuinely believe that I have the best job in the world.  Each day is different and filled with opportunities to do something that will make a difference in the lives of my students.  

I am a proud graduate of Auburn University, holding a B.S., M.S., and National Board Certification in Agricultural Education, along with a minor concentration in the field of Animal Science.  I was a member of the AU Collegiate FFA, AU Block & Bridle Club, AU Collegiate Livestock Judging Team, and Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity.  I have been blessed to be married to my wonderful wife (Kelly) for the last 27 years.  We have two daughters, Olivia (senior at Auburn University) and Sydni (sophmore at the University of North Alabama). We are members of Duck River Baptist Church and strive to be faithful servants of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  I stay busy on our small farm in the Holly Pond/Walter area where we raise both purebred and commercial cattle, along with a few select show cattle.  I am very proud to say that we have bred, raised, and exhibited several local and state champions over the years.  I consider myself a gentleman farmer and spend much of my time taking care of what God has entrusted to me.  

My hope is that my students have a wonderful Ag/FFA experience and see that I genuinely care for them and their success.

I hope that you have a great school year!
