A farmer from Osage took the gavel as president of the Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) while six farmers were elected to leadership positions at the association’s board of directors meeting held Sept. 3.
Wayne Fredericks of Osage took his seat as president. Farmers elected were:
• Rolland Schnell, Newton – president-elect
• Jeff Jorgenson, Sidney – treasurer
• Bill Shipley, Nodaway — secretary
• Lindsay Greiner, Keota – executive committee
ISA directors also elected Fredericks and Dean Coleman, Humboldt, to represent Iowa on the American Soybean Association (ASA) board of directors.
“Iowa soybean farmers look to these leaders to manage their investments, whether it be in research to find solutions to the latest production issues or in market development to find new uses or customers for our production,” said Fredericks. “These leaders also engage in the policy making process to protect our freedom to operate. At the state, national and international levels, these leaders will work on behalf of Iowa Soybean farmers to enhance their competitiveness and bring value to their farm operations.”
