Wisconsin Ag Connection - 06/18/2015
The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation has named a permanent chief administrative officer. Dale Beaty will oversee all day-to-day operations of the Madison-based farm organization after serving as the
WFBF's director of training and leadership development for the past 10 years.
"I'm very humbled and honored for the opportunity to lead the great staff we have at the Wisconsin Farm Bureau," Beaty said. "We will continue to work together to provide valuable services and
representation to our members."
Since coming to the Farm Bureau in 2005, Dale has worked with the Young Farmer and Agriculturist program and with the Institute leadership development program. He also conducts training programs for
county Farm Bureaus and new Rural Mutual Insurance Company agents.
A native of Hillsboro, Beaty graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in agricultural economics. He served as a U.S. Army Officer from 1987 to 1994 and is an Army Airborne
Ranger. He started Beaty Construction, a home construction company, and moved to Milton in 1994.
Beaty has served on the Rock County 4-H Fair Board, the Milton school board, and on the National FFA board of directors. He has also served a state FFA officer during his youth and is a former president of both the state and national FFA Alumni organizations.
Dale succeeds Jim Holte, who had been serving as the interim CAO since last summer.
