Pollack Graduates from Farm Bureau PAL Leadership Program
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/06/2017

A Wisconsin Farm Bureau member from Fond du Lac County was among nine outstanding young farm leaders honored last week by the American Farm Bureau as graduates of its Partners in Agricultural Leadership class. Chris Pollack of Ripon, who farms on a 170-cow operation with his parents, was recognized during AFBF's Advocacy Conference in Washington, D.C.

Pollack first joined Farm Bureau when he was 21 years old. He has served as chair of his county's Young Farmers & Ranchers program and is part of Volunteers for Agriculture, which is the Wisconsin Farm Bureau's political action committee. Chris is also involved in the Ripon FFA Alumni and coaches the Fond du Lac County dairy judging team.

Other participants of the program were from Indiana, Montana, Ohio, Arizona, Kentucky, Missouri, Kansas, Virginia and Mississippi.

PAL is designed to help agricultural leaders accelerate their leadership abilities and solidify their roles as advocates for agriculture. To be eligible for the program, applicants must have previously developed leadership skills built through participating in at least one Young Farmers & Ranchers program.

This is the eighth group to complete the two-year Partners in Agricultural Leadership course.
