American Farm Bureau has new rosters for two national committees

The American Farm Bureau Federation recently appointed several farmers and ranchers from across the U.S.  to serve on the bureau's Promotion & Education (P&E) and Young Farmers & Ranchers (YF&R) committees.
 
“Farm Bureau volunteer leaders … are the backbone of our organization,” AFBF President Zippy Duvall said. “As advocates for today’s agriculture, they play an important role in building a greater understanding between farmers and consumers.”
 
P&E Committee members serve two-year terms and promote programs and activities, liaison with civic leaders and contribute ideas.

New and continuing representatives of the P&E Committee include Jennifer Bergin, Melstone, Montana (crops and beef cattle); Rosalie Geiger, Reedsville, Wisconsin (dairy cattle, beef cattle and crops); Jamison McPherson, Nephi, Utah (crops and wildlife management); Renee McCauley, Lowell, Michigan (dairy cattle and crops); Hilary Maricle, Albion, Nebraska (beef cattle, hogs and crops); Val Wagner, Monango, North Dakota (crops and beef cattle); and Chris Hoffman, McAlisterville, Pennsylvania (hogs and poultry).
