Indiana Farm Bureau President Don Villwock Announces AFBF Presidential Seat Bid

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 10:13:56 CDT

Indiana Farm Bureau President Don Villwock Announces AFBF Presidential Seat Bid Information provided by Hoosier Ag Today

First it was Don Villwock, now it's Bob Stallman. Villwock is president of Indiana Farm Bureau and it was almost a month ago that he announced he will not seek re-election for another term. He'll step down at the end of the year. Then Tuesday Stallman, president at American Farm Bureau announced that he will not seek re-election at the annual meeting in January.

Wednesday morning Villwock announced he is throwing his hat in the ring with this announcement:

President Bob Stallman announced yesterday that he will not seek re-election as President of the American Farm Bureau. As we all know, Bob has done an outstanding job leading our organization and it has been an honor to work with him.

After discussions with my family and encouragement from many of you, I have made the decision to seek the Presidency of the American Farm Bureau at our convention in January. I believe that my experiences and my leadership capabilities qualify me to lead the organization as our industry and our nation face challenging times. American agriculture needs the strong and unified voice of Farm Bureau. My diverse leadership experiences, both inside and outside Farm Bureau, have given me the unique qualifications to represent our nation's farmers and ranchers.

I firmly believe that Farm Bureau's strength resides in our grassroots system whose bedrock is the local Farm Bureau. We can only have a strong American Farm Bureau if we have strong state and county/parish Farm Bureaus. I will dedicate my efforts to strengthen and build on this tradition.

I look forward to visiting with you, listening to your ideas, and answering any questions you might have.

I am asking for your support as we begin this process of selecting a new AFBF President.


Don Villwock

President | Indiana Farm Bureau Inc.
