Iowa soybean farmers were elected to state and national leadership positions at the September meeting of the Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) board of directors.
Those tapped to serve as ISA officers were: Tim Bardole, Rippey – president-elect; Robb Ewoldt, Davenport – treasurer; Dave Walton, Wilton – secretary; and Randy Miller, Lacona – executive committee.
Lindsay Greiner of Keota accepted the gavel as president and welcomed the newly elected state soybean leaders to their key posts.
ISA directors also re-elected Wayne Fredericks of Osage and Dean Coleman of Humboldt as directors of the American Soybean Association.
Greiner joined those elected in welcoming the chance to serve.
“These are challenging times for the industry, but farmers are resilient,” he said. “The long-term outlook for domestic and global soybean consumption remains positive.
“I look forward to working with our executive committee and all directors to represent the needs of farmers and our industry while effectively managing the hard-earned investment farmers make courtesy of the soybean checkoff,” Greiner added.
Funded by Soybean Checkoff
The Iowa Soybean Association (www.iasoybeans.com) develops policies and programs that help Iowa’s more than 40,000 soybean farmers expand profit opportunities while promoting environmentally sensitive production using the soybean checkoff and other resources. The association was founded in 1964 and is governed by an elected volunteer board of 22 farmers. It strives to be honest and transparent, fact-based and data driven and committed to environmental stewardship, collaborations and partnerships.
