Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/19/2015

The Wisconsin-based Dairy Business Association has a new leader. Gordon Speirs of Brillion was elected president of the group's board of directors during the first annual Dairy Strong conference held last week in Madison.

The Speirs' family had been dairy farming in southern Saskatchewan, Canada since the 1930s until they sold their farm and quota in 2003 and built a new herd in Brillion. Gordon had been serving as vice president of the DBA. He replaces long-time president Jerry Meissner of Chili, who's term on the DBA board has expired this year.

Other officers include Mike North, Commodity Risk Management Group, Platteville, vice president; Tom Crave, Crave Brothers Dairy Farm, Waterloo, treasurer; Paul Fetzer, Fetzer Farms, Elmwood; and Jennifer Keuning, Conestoga Rovers & Associates, Green Bay, who was re-elected as a corporate board member and will continue to serve as board secretary.

DBA delegates also elected several new board members. They were Greg Steele, AgStar Financial Services, River Falls; Jim Ostrom, MilkSource, Kaukauna; Mike Gerrits, Country Aire Farms, Greenleaf; and Kevin Solum, Minglewood Dairy, Amherst.
