Felts Elected President of Kansas Farm Bureau

Rich Felts, a Montgomery County farmer, was elected president of Kansas Farm Bureau this month, replacing Steve Baccus, who served in the position since 2002.

The Felts farm is a diversified grain operation with wheat, corn and soybeans. They also grow out breeding stock for a major swine company and maintain a small cow herd. The partnership is operated by Felts' son, Darren, a brother, Larry, and Larry's son-in-law.

"I'm looking forward to this opportunity," Felts says. "I'm passionate about agriculture and want to do all that is possible to provide a bright future for Kansas farmers and ranchers."

Felts joined Kansas Farm Bureau's board of directors in 2001. He was elected vice president in 2011.

"Rich is a strong leader, and will do an excellent job leading the state's largest farm organization into the future," Terry Holdren, KFB CEO and General Counsel, says. "There is no doubt Kansas Farm Bureau will continue serving as the voice of agriculture and providing superior service and products to our members and county organizations."

Felts serves on the Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company board of directors, is a 4-H community leader, served on the Kansas State Extension Advisory Council and is a past chairman of the Montgomery County Extension Council and Rural Water Board, in addition to serving as president of SEK Grain.

Kansas Farm Bureau represents grassroots agriculture. Established in 1919, this non-profit advocacy organization supports farm families who earn their living in a changing industry.
