He’s now the past Chairman of the Agricultural Retailers Association. He’s Gary Farrell (pictured left), Ag Enterprise Supply, who passed the gavel to the new Chairman, Dave DuFault, Simplot at the annual meeting in New Orleans.
Prior to the ceremonies I visited with Gary and asked him what he was most proud of accomplishing during his term. He says it is “The formation of the ResponsibleAg program.” It is a program that took years to come to fruition with some rough spots along the way. Gary is also proud of opening up a line of communication between the ag retail community and the USDA-NRCS. Gary won’t be sitting around now that his term is up. He has been appointed to a couple of boards that are important to the ag retail business.
